This class will cover 3 different Italian breads and 1 risotto from scratch.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
- Pasta Dura
Translated as "Hard Dough" and it is a low hydration bread that has a crunchy crust and light airy texture inside which makes it a perfect bread for dunking into olive oil or dips when entertaining. A very standard Italian bread, served with meals.
- Tomato Focaccia Barese
We will be using semolina flour to make this traditional Apulian focaccia. Semolina, a flour obtained milling the durum wheat, has a very sticky texture and it is very important to make the perfect focaccia. We will also be adding a secret ingredient to this bread to make it more airy and soft for a few days!
- Porcini Risotto
We will prepare this risotto from preparing the vegetable stock! Risotto can be prepared in 30 minutes but the important part is to serve it eat it at the right timing! according to Stefano, risotto cannot be shared! Why? you can ask him during the class ;)
- Piadina (Italian style wrap)
Simple yet tasty wrap became the most famous wrap in Italy by the German tourists who were visiting Romagna region. The dough was traditionally cooked on a terracotta dish (called teggia in Romagnolo). We will be making this on a fraying pan. Served with slices of ham and cheese and your lunch is sorted!
