ITALIAN HOME COOKING
Home Cooking: the Essence of Italian Gastronomy
“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 the Italian Home Cooking professor, Ms. Gaia.
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.
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.
3 reasons why FCAS Italian Home Cooking is different from other cooking courses.
1. Our cooking professor is not just any Italian “mamma” teaching cooking, but our teacher is a recognized professional “cuoca”, who has published cooking books, and who also teach the secrets of the homemade Italian cuisine. Each lesson covers lots of important aspects about the Italian culture as well.
2. Lessons are held 4 days/week 3-4 hours each day. In just a month, students can learn and practice up to around 65 recipes.
3. Lessons are held in a small group of max 8 participants, followed by a lunch (or dinner) together. In a very friendly and relaxed environment, the participants will also visit the Central Market of Florence guided by their translator to get familiar with the Italian fresh ingredients.
