I am excited to announce that, in connection with a talented local chef from Barbaresco, the old train station of Barbaresco will play host to interactive cooking classes every Sunday afternoon during September, October and November. If you are looking for an authentic cooking class of local Piedmont dishes, look no further. I can also arrange a class based on the famed white truffle during truffle season.
The idea was to create an accessible cooking class at a special location for individuals or groups to participate in, enjoy local cooking, share experiences and generally have a good time!
The classes are run by a local Piedmont chef, and will focus on typical pasta dishes - tajarin (egg noodle pasta) and agnolotti del "plin" (stuffed pasta), together with the tricks of creating the best pasta sauces (think the famed ragu, or butter and sage or sugo d'arrosto). Other menu options may include risotto con tartufo, bonet (a delicious local dessert, made with eggs, milk, amaretti biscuits, caramel, all baked in a bain-marie).
The classes will be held every Sunday afternoon starting from 10 September, through to 26 November, from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm. The classes are for a minimum of 4 people, and are strictly limited to a maximum of 10 participants. We accept individual bookings also.
The cost of the cooking class is EUR 50 pp. The classes include recipes, a glass of wine, cooking lesson with translation, and take-away pack of biscuits / pasta made on the day.
I can also arrange a truffle hunt, paired with a cooking class based on local dishes for truffles. Cost of truffles will require a supplement, at market price.
If you have kids, we can also arrange a special parents / kids cooking class, upon request.
Release the masterchef within, and get your hands dirty (literally) and sticky!
Bookings through firstname.lastname@example.org, stating number of people and preferred date.
