What will I study?

During this course, our experienced and much-travelled tutor, John Day, will take you on a gastronomic tour of regional Italian tastes and aromas. Your journey will start with making fresh pasta using a pasta machine and learning how to make tortellini and ravioli. We'll show you how to make antipasti, sauces, and oils and prepare poultry and cured meats.
