Trattoria 2016

The Italian Trattoria with Mariella Bliss – Sunday 13th November 2016 @ 11am


A trattoria is a small, simple, classless ‘local’ restaurant. Therefore, Italian trattoria food is the most honest, simple and typical of Italy: fresh home made pasta, locally produced cheeses and cured meat, traditional soups, seafood dishes and country bread!

This course will take you through Italy stopping in Genova for Pansoti (filled pasta) with walnut sauce, in Siena for Bruschette and Cannellini beans, in Naples for Peperonata, in Sicily for Pasta alla Norma (pasta with aubergines, pomodorini and salty ricotta), in Sardinia for Pane Frattau (music sheet bread with tomatoes and eggs), in Rome for Saltimbocca (chicken or veal with sage and Parma ham) and the most decadent Panna Cotta!

Perfect for enabling you to go home and create a fabulous feast for friends and family!
