Ursula Ferrigno is a talented cook with a deep love of Southern Italian food. She has cooked on many TV programmes and is a prolific author.  Her books include Trattoria,  La Dolce Vita – a book of heavenly desserts and sweets – and Ursula Ferrigno’s Italian Cookery Course.

Nothing reflects freshness more than the fruits of the sea. Join Ursula for some delicious fish and seafood delights using our favourite local fishmonger right here in the centre of Oxford – Osney Fish Market.

In this class not only will you master three dishes but everyone will learn how to gut and fillet sardines and squid, so you can return home and recreate time after time. Dishes may include:

  • Start by learning how to make chickpea pasta that accompanies so many Italian fish dishes
  • Learn how to clean and prepare your own squid and then create squid two ways:
  • Fritto Misto
  • Laganelle con calamari e ceci – chickpea pasta with squid and chickpeas
  • Learn how to clean and prepare sardines and create the delicious Venetian dish Sarde in saor

Working in pairs, you will make every dish. With plenty of top tips from Ursula, this is a must for those of you who are a little nervous around seafood!
