The Italian Language Program is pleased to present:
Cooking with Maura
(In Italian and in English, when necessary)
Maura’s objective is to properly educate students to the pleasures of the table and to good food. She will share the concepts of simple, yet sophisticated Italian cuisine while teaching you how to prepare a gourmet meal. It’s a fun occasion to also learn and practice Italian!
Under Maura’s supervision, students will carry out all the stages of preparing the meal, in order to become accustomed to the techniques and difficulties at hand.
In the comfort of a private home, having a good time, sipping wine, and enjoying together the prepared meal, participants will learn and experience the culinary arts, transforming cooking into a fun activity, and a manner of self-expression.
Maura will begin with fundamentals, teaching basic recipes and techniques. In reality, these first steps are the most difficult: it is easy to impress with an elaborate dish using many ingredients, however, a real culinary guru is able to use certain techniques to make a simple pasta with tomato sauce and basil or risotto unforgettable!
