Short Course

In today’s society, dominated by fast-food culture, discovering the diversity of the ingredients and appreciating their natural smell and flavor reminds us of what the real culinary arts are. “All the ingredients are blessing from nature, and we appreciate each ingredient’s flavor as it is. That’s the basics of Italian cooking”, says one of the Italian Home Cooking instructors, Ms. Paola. In Italy, love and respect for nature are the origin of all handmade products – whether it is culinary arts or plastic arts. Home-cooked meals are always delicious and filled with warmth. The recipes handed down from parents to children represent the taste of the family. It is something that cannot be learned in a large sterile kitchen of a school. The dishes are prepared quickly using fresh and natural ingredients, with just some seasoning measured by eyes, but their taste is so special as no restaurant could offer. Italian Home Cooking is not just about learning recipes; the spirit of sharing a good time is a crucial element of each meal. In a typical Italian home, there is always plenty of food to accommodate even unexpected guests and spend enjoyable moments together. The Italian Home Cooking program represents a unique opportunity to experience such an Italian spirit directly and to re-discover the real fragrance of fresh ingredients and the preciousness of the time to share and enjoy life together.
