Italian Cooking and Conversation: Lesson IV

This week’s menu was another success.  Students first prepared the pasta di zafferano (saffron pasta).  They used this to make ravioli allo zafferano con zucca.  They then worked on the insalata rucola con parmigiano e pomodorini ciliegia, a simple, but delicious arugala salad with cherry tomatoes.  Lastly, they prepared sorbetto al limone (lemon sorbet).  As always, instructor, Leslie Fillnow provided students with an Italian vocabulary list including all ingredients and applicable verbs and adjectives.  Students left with a complete experience: hands-on learning that delights all of the senses.
