ZOOM CLASSES: Pizza, Pasta, Caponata, Biscotti, Sughi, Dolci.....

 Because of these strange and uncertain times, I wanted to do something to bring a little joy into your homes through cooking. I have decided to take one of our most popular classes online starting on Monday 22nd June 2020 . In our first virtual workshop on together we will make Mariella Bliss’ Simple Pizza Margherita, I will then add more dates to explore together the world of bread making but also short sessions making Biscotti, Ricciarelli Toscani, Panforte di Siena, Caponata Siciliana, Parmigiana, Pannacotta and your favourite …pasta pasta pasta! 



The class will take place using Zoom. This will only be accessible by learners signed up to the class.

As soon as you book your place you will be sent a link to access from your computer, the recipe and method.

If you will be using Zoom for the first time, please don’t worry, just join a little earlier in case you willl be asked to download the program.

We will start the sessions with our sound and video on to introduce each other.

Once the teaching starts, you will be asked to turn the sound off to avoid background noise.

We will stop at each stage to allow questions.

Please make sure you have all your ingredients weighed.

I am not a quilified teacher of Italian but I can cook in any lunguage and I will add even more enthusiasm since 100% of your fee will go to Oxford Hospital Charity to say once again (and never enough) THANK YOU for their wonderful work.
