Italian Cooking Session 2 ~ A taste of Tuscany and Umbria ~ Chef Malcolm Jessop (8/30/17)


Straddling the Appenine mountains between Lazio, Marche, and Tuscany lies Umbria. Perhaps less famous than it's Northern neighbor Tuscany, it has a reputation for producing some of the best meat in Italy. Most famous are the black pigs that live in the mountains and feed on wild plants and herbs, and even truffles! The “Norcini” (specialist pork butchers) are highly respected and travel from farm to farm performing their craft.

This class may feature recipes from both regions such as Salvia fritta, Grilled shrimp with white beans, rosemary and mint oil, Strisce alla Chiantigianna (Pasta cooked with red wine and pancetta), Pork tenderloin alla porchetta, Umbrian farro with heirloom tomatoes and corn, and Tuscan skillet cheesecake with strawberry Vin Santo sauce.

Includes a Silverado Cooking School apron & recipes to take home!
