About the Event
While we can't meet in person join us for a Zoom cooking session. It's From Scratch has very close ties with Podere dell'Alloro, a beautiful converted farm in Palaia, a small pretty village in the Valdera region of Tuscany. We've visited many times and hosts Clare and Andy have shared amazing Tuscan meals with us, both in their own kitchen and by taking us to the best restaurants in the area. Soon we hope to be hosting cooking classes in Tuscany but in the meantime we have this.
The menu for the evening is inspired by those magical meals
- Aubergine Parmigiana
- Courgette, Tomato and Cannellini Bean Salad
- Mascarpone Cheesecake
We can provide adivice on substitute ingredients if you require them, please just let us know before the class date. When you register for the event we will send you the shopping list & equipment list. The zoom link will follow closer to the event date. The charge for each class is £15 per 'screen' - in other words your whole household can cook together but you pay just £15. We do not provide ingredients or equipment but try to ensure all ingredients are easy to access and provide alternatives.
Please Note: Our cookalongs only proceed if we have a minimum of 4 attendees. For that reason we don't recommend you shop for your ingredients until Tuesday 11th May when we will confirm the class and send the zoom link. If a class does not go ahead we will of course send you a refund or you can book onto another class.
Only basic equipment is needed, you will generally need access to 2 hob burners and an oven. An electric handheld whisk or stand mixer is also recommended for this class.
If you want more information on what a Live! Cookalong is like please have a look at our Blog post on just that.
There will be a requirement to prepare/pre weigh some of the ingredients and we'll let you know about those too. For this class especially we ask you to whizz up your breadcrumbs and biscuit crumbs before the class starts. If it's your first class with us we'll call you in the week leading up to the class so you can ask questions and know what to expect. All our classes are fun and relaxed, you can ask questions as we go and we don't rush ahead. This class is scheduled to last 2 hours and then you can enjoy the feast you have created.
There is always time for mid-class washing up during the class as well as a 10 minute break. If you enjoy the class you may be interested in our cookbook plus ingredient hampers which can be bought at www.itsfromscratch.co.uk/shop Class participants will receive a £5 discount on any of our Ingredient Hampers
