The Event

Want to cook delicious Italian dishes using traditional skills and seasonal ingredients? In this class, you will discover how to create classic dishes that transport you through the delights of Italian dining. The experience will leave you asking for “ancora un po’, per favore” (a bit more, please)!

"I'll show you the techniques to make hand-made pasta using plant-based ingredients, and how to make plant-based bechamel and ragu sauces while the complimentary flavours bring the pasta to life as a delicious lasagne. We will also create a seasonal antipasto and make an Italian sweet". Mark Breen, chef and cookery teacher.

This masterclass will include:

  • How to craft delicious Italian dishes using traditional skills and seasonal ingredients
  • How to make and hand-roll a plant-based pasta dough
  • Create a delicious plant-based Bechámel sauce, before combining it with a pasta and a roast vegetable ragu to make a vegetable lasagne using only natural ingredients
  • Make a fresh and vibrant Italian antipasto of Sicilian caponata using delicious ingredients (plus a secret ingredient to add real richness)
  • Create the classic Italian dessert dark chocolate and amaretto mousse, using plant-based ingredients for a light and creamy taste to complete the perfect meal
  • Make and bake sensational hazelnut biscotti  
  • Enjoy your dishes as an organic plant-based dinner 
  • Easy-to-follow recipe sheets provided to recreate the dishes again and again at home
