Italian Christmas

Italian Christmas

Duration: 1 Day

Natale or Christmas is by far the most important holiday in Italy. It’s the time when Italian families reunite, celebrate and share the most wonderful festive seasonal food. Days are spent in the kitchen with everyone pitching in, with lots of time between meals to relax, digest and chew the fat with loved ones.

Passionate Italian chef Ursula Ferrigno has created a sumptuous Italian Christmas feast that you can create at home for your family and friends this Christmas. Ursula has selected her favourite seasonal  festive dishes which include:

  • Potato gnocchi with truffle oil
  • Lobster ravioli
  • Pheasant with chestnuts
  • Misticanza
  • Panettone
  • Chocolate salami

The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park.

The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.

Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.

Please note Children over the age of 8 years old are welcome to attend and participate in any of our classes at the full cost of a place but MUST be accompanied by 1 paying adult.
