One of the first things Sam and I thought about when we heard about the trip to Rome was cooking school, so I set about arranging it. My mom came along, too. Lots of food was eaten by all.
We started off with bruschette. We didn’t make it, but we did see how easy it is to make. Pretty sure the purpose of this course was to fill us up just enough that we wouldn’t be tempted to eat what we were cooking as we were cooking it.
After the bruschette we were put to work making broccolo romanesco (Roman Broccoli).
After we got the broccoli going we went ahead and made desert. Tiramisu. It’s no bake, but does require some time to set.
Next up was the Saltimbocca all Romana. Veal with proprosciutto and basil.
The only thing left to make was Le Fettuccine al sugo di pomodoro & basilico or Fettuccine with Tomato and Basil Sauce.
After we finished cooking it was time to enjoy it. We enjoyed a fantastic meal. A giant meal. Starting with a very simple antipasto. We didn’t cook this one, no cooking really required, but we did eat it up.
We haven’t tried any of these recipes since we’ve gotten home, but have plans to try them all.
