Alfresco Dining Series: Piadini
COOKING & CUISINE -
Have you heard of piadini? This thin Italian flat bread from Romagna can be eaten alone or made into a “sandwich”. Similar to a Middle Eastern flatbread, piadini can be cooked on a griddle, or even made fresh on an open fire. We will make ours with a vegetarian filled of “chopped salad,” and another version made with a combination of Italian cheeses and cured meats. Fast and easy to make, piadini are perfect for a picnic.
Join Adele for the Alfresco dining series that will have you thinking of picnics by the lake and eating outside with friends as warm temperatures and sunny days start to arrive. Join us for one or all of this series of Italian street food classes. Adele will teach you how to make authentic dishes from the country of her ancestors. Having traveled throughout Italy during her adult life, she will share the tastes and joy of her travels. Other classes in this Alfresco Dining Series are:
Sfogliatella- a flaky handmade pastry
Arancini- A “rice ball” with a variety of fillings
Panella- A chick pea fritter, can be filled with a variety of delicious fillings or eaten solo
This class will meet inside CVU.
