Authentic Italian Cuisine: Tastes of Sardinia

Authentic Italian Cuisine: Tastes of Sardinia

Duration: 1 Day

Italian chef Ursula Ferrigno loves the food of Sardinia. Completely different to the food of the mainland Sardinian food evokes the simple life and the remote past. Hugely generous and hospitable Sardinians are passionate artisan food producers with each village having their own special breads, biscuits and cakes. Over the centuries Sardinia has had many foreign invaders including the Arabs and Catalans, their influences can be found in many dishes and cooking terms on the island.

On this one day cookery experience passionate chef Ursula Ferrigno will share her enthusiasm and knowledge of Sardinian cookery with you, teaching you to create the following Sardinian dishes: 

  • Peperoni arrosto con carciofi pecorino e noci – Roasted peppers with artichokes, pecorino and nuts
  • Ceci all zafferano – chick peas with saffron
  • Carasau – Music sheet bread
  • Pasta con bottarga – Freshly made pasta Sardinian style
  • Pizza di Sardegna – Sardinian pizza with anchovies and olives
  • Torta al limon e pera – Lemon and pear cake

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.
