An Italian Menù is a one day course, generally on Saturday from 9 to 12. I decide the recipes normally just one day before... because I need to look what the food market offers. So for the two/three weeks before I "analyse" my Italian cooking magazines, then I stroll through the vegetables and fruits stalls at the local farmers' markets to understand what the season is offering... I admit it: it is still difficult for me to understand which is the "real" season here... but I am working hard on it! Anyway it is spring almost summer... so Asparagus...some tomatoes...eggplants... So this is the inspiration I had...
I am sure the class liked it a lot :-)... and, as always, I took this new challenge and I enjoyed it so much!
