I give them a copy of my cookbook, Secrets of My Tuscan Kitchen, so we have a great base to start with to create our menu.
Then shopping at the local butchers helps dictate our main course and Erica my assistant brings us what is fresh from her mom, Francesa's, garden. We sort of do a Tuscan "Iron Chef "daily.
|The recipe- Eggplant " Bruschette"|
For my weeklong programs- it is more or less the same. Constantly changing is what keeps it all fresh to me too. When I meet my students, we talk and I learn if they have been here before and what to take them to go see. Mostly I love sharing my friends at the local markets, artists and artisans.
Here are some foto's from this month's sessions.
Just like being here!
Enjoy your summer-
Shop local markets- Eat seasonally
