During this week’s La Tavola Marche LIVE Online Cooking Class - celebrate Spring in Italy with Fava Crostini and Fava with a Wedge of Pecorino Cheese along with a proper Artichoke Risotto. This is a beautiful lunch of fresh fava (broad beans) two ways: paired with a wedge of creamy fresh pecorino (sheep’s milk) cheese and secondly, fava topped on toasty bread with ribbons of parmesan. The star of this lunch - a properly made risotto. Risotto is a labor of love, you’ll find some recipes with short-cuts however to really get the creamy chewy consistency you must work the starch from the rice & that means good old fashion elbow-grease! And with overflowing crates of artichokes filling the market streets (a sure sign that Spring is on its way) there’s no better pairing this time of year than artichokes & risotto.
Our classes focus not only the recipes at hand but the technique and theories behind each dish. It’s more than just watching an episode of a cooking show on television because this is not only LIVE but interactive! Students/viewers will have the chance to ask questions along the way since all the cooking is done together LIVE! Either join in the fun and cook along with us or sit back and watch with a glass of wine.
