Cooking Class “La Cucina Flegrea” with Anna

Rigatoni alla Vodka     Spaghetti alla Rucola (Arugula)    Tagliatelle Zucchini          When we arrived Anna had bruschetta made on grilled bread,  a plate of verdi  and Kalamata olives and two cheeses for appetizer placed on a table waiting for us.  She poured a glass of wine for each of us, red or white.  A bottle of water, too.  She demonstrated all three dishes and then each of us got to choose and make one  by ourselves. The four of us made the Rigatoni with the Vodka Sauce.   Watching all the work behind the scenes in the restaurant kitchen was impressive. When Anna prepared each dish it looked effortless. The combination of the ingredients makes each dish taste perfect!   She had the recipes printed and tied together so we could add more recipes from another class.  We ate AND took home leftovers.  Delicious.  We learned a lot about different olives, cheeses, pastas, olive oil, how to dice an onion without crying.  All the classes are held 12:30 so we were finished in time for them to get ready for the evening service. What a satisfying way to spend a winter afternoon.

Next class February 27th.  La Cucina Flegrea  2114 Murray Ave   Pittsburgh, PA 15217 (412)521-2082
