+ Fettuccine all'Amatriciana
+ Ravioli Ripieni di Ricotta e Spinaci con Burro e Salvia
Welcome to the delightful world of Italian cuisine! Prepare your taste buds for an unforgettable journey as we introduce you to some classic Italian dishes that are sure to tantalize your senses. Let's explore the flavors of Italy together!
First up, we have "Fettuccine all'Amatriciana." Picture a plate of perfectly cooked, long and flat ribbons of pasta known as fettuccine, tossed in a rich and savory tomato sauce. This sauce is a delightful blend of ripe tomatoes, diced onions, and crispy pancetta—a savory Italian bacon. The pancetta infuses the sauce with a smoky and slightly salty flavor, providing a perfect contrast to the sweetness of the tomatoes. The dish is then generously sprinkled with grated Pecorino Romano cheese, which adds a sharp and tangy note. With each bite, you'll experience a harmonious combination of textures and flavors that will leave you craving for more.
Next on our culinary adventure, we have "Ravioli Ripieni di Ricotta e Spinaci con Burro e Salvia." Imagine delicate pockets of homemade pasta, lovingly filled with a creamy blend of fresh ricotta cheese and spinach. These little parcels are cooked to perfection and then gently bathed in a luxurious sauce made from melted butter and fragrant sage leaves. The ricotta cheese contributes a smooth and velvety texture, while the spinach adds a vibrant green color and a subtle earthy taste. As you savor each bite, the buttery sauce envelopes your palate, creating a comforting and indulgent experience that will warm your heart.
Lastly, we present to you the crown jewel of Italian desserts, "Gelato." This frozen delight is the epitome of Italian craftsmanship and passion. Imagine a silky-smooth ice cream with a luscious texture that effortlessly melts in your mouth. It is made with the finest ingredients, such as fresh milk, sugar, and natural flavors like vanilla, chocolate, or fruity delights like strawberry and lemon. The gelato artisans skillfully churn and freeze this creamy concoction to create a dessert that is both refreshing and decadent. With its wide array of flavors, gelato offers something to satisfy every sweet tooth, and it is a must-try treat that will leave you enchanted.
Italian cuisine is a celebration of tradition, flavor, and love for food. These dishes we've shared with you—fettuccine all'Amatriciana, ravioli ripieni di ricotta e spinaci con burro e salvia, and gelato—embody the essence of Italian gastronomy. So, don't hesitate to dive into these culinary delights, let your taste buds dance, and embrace the warmth of Italian hospitality. Buon appetito!
Hey there, foodies!
We'll meet up in Via del Governo Vecchio, one of the coolest streets in the heart of Rome, where I've renovated what was previously an ancient home, nested in a centuries-old building and turned it into a functional and modern kitchen: the place where the magic happens.
We'll make pasta from scratch, like fettuccine and ravioli. You'll get your hands dirty and learn how to make traditional roman cuisine sauces like the famous Amatriciana. We'll also make ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach with butter and sage (or with fresh small tomatoes and basil), and bowtie pasta with pesto. And let's not forget homemade gelato!
I'm stoked to teach you how to make the perfect Italian pasta and gelato at home!
PS: If you've got any allergies, give me a heads up. And if you can't find a spot for the date you want, hit me up - we'll see what we can do ;)
