EASTER COOKING MADE EASY

Monday 21st March, just in time for Spring the second appointment with Nonnas Chesterfield Cookery School dedicated to a fuss free super tasty family Easter feast left all participant egg-static!

Fully booked since launch, the course focused on creating delicious Italian Easter meals to cook for family and friends for a fun and fuss -free day. 

Everyone wokred hard at each dish, making Ligurian Torta Pasqualina of filo pastry, ricotta and seasonal vegetables (cooked to perfection for lunch a little bit later on and accompanied by a glass of vino and green salad), Lamb polpette with a fennel twist, staple pasta al forno with grilled med- vegetables, passata and mozzarella di bufala.


No meal would be complete without a scrumptious dolce: baked vanilla cheesecake with blueberry and lemon zest, a twist on a popular italian ricotta based Easter dolce.

As always there was laughter and amazing effort from all involved- every single participant graduted with flying colours and left with a goodie bag full of home-made treats.

There was even a special egg dedicated to one of our organisers, safe and sound at Zoe's one of our guests. We are sure it will hatch soon :-) What a day!




Roll on 18th April, when we go back to our roots and the cucina povera of Tuscany!
