On the menu last evening were pollo all creta or chicken baked in terra-cotta, piselle e funghi or peas with mushrooms, and tiramisu con pandoro. Students enjoyed learning Italian while cooking items that were new and creative. Baking a chicken in clay? Well, when the chicken is done, the clay is broken with a hammer (or rolling pin!) and the chicken emerges, beautifully cooked and juicy. And tiramisu; we all know that layered, delicious dessert. Leslie and students made it another wonderful evening of cooking, learning and partaking. There will be more amazing, regional dishes for next week!
