Home Cooking: the Essence of Italian Gastronomy
In today’s society, dominated by fast-food culture, discovering the diversity of the ingredients and appreciating their natual smelland flavor reminds us what the real culinary art is.
All the ingredients are blessing from the nature, and we appreciate each ingredient’s flavor as it is. That’s the basic of Italian cooking”, says the prof. Fiammetta.
In fact, Italy, love and respect for the nature is the origin of all handmade products – whether it is culinary art or plastic art.
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!
Home cooking is not just about learning recipes; the spirit of sharing a good time is a crucial element of each meal. In the typical Italian home, there is always plenty of food to accommodate even unexpected guests and spend enjoyable moments together.
FCAS Italian Home Cooking program represents a unique opportunity to experience such 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.
Time will fly by while having fun and learning in a cozy home kitchen.
