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! 

 

   HOW WILL THE ONLINE CLASSES WORK?

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

As soon as you book by clicking on the class link or by sending an email, you will be able to access the ingredients and equipment needed for your recipes. Closer to the date of our class I will send the full recipes with method and notes. You will also be sent a Zoom link to enable you access our lesson.                   

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.
