Italian Cooking and Conversation: Session I

Session one of our first, six-week session is underway with Helena Gagliano of Sicily at the helm.  Certified court interpreter and former owner and chef of an Italian bistro, Helena qualifications include all of the ingredients for a wonderful session.

This week’s menu included bruschetta al pomodoro, lasagna alla ferrarese, ragu (meat sauce) and besciamella .  Thirteen students made each of the menu items, learned accompanying vocabulary, and dined on the dishes they prepared.  A wonderful evening!
