As homeschooling slowly draws to an end, (tomorrow), I’ll be able to immerse myself in this again; weighing up ingredients and testing recipes (I’ve had many swirling in my head - 3 months worth)! Looking forward to sharing what I’m cooking & baking in classes and here! • I can just taste it, and I will never take this time for granted again! I won’t bloody know myself! • #nomorehomeschooling #cantwait #thevillagecookscookingschool #italianinspiredcookingclasses #thevillagecooks #time

Hello! I hope you’re all doing well! What crazy wild windy cold weather we have today! Truly the perfect day to be feeling lazy (and lazy I have been!). • Here are some of the veggies I collected yesterday from my kitchen garden! Fennel with it’s fennel fronds, beetroot, broccoli, cime di rapa, lettuce leaves, parsley! What joy it is to collect! And anyone else feel that the constant winds have kept the white moth at bay? I have been lucky thus far; no white moth eggs found under the brassica leaves!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way!🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻! • Keep on being safe and taking care! See you all soon!

It’s always a pleasure to have the Greek contingent (@sylv1a_k @kathleen__k @maria_papa62 @antoniadishelen @sofial53).... oh and the one Italian (@ozcasali 😂) for a private Sicilian workshop today. • Great laughs while we made busiate pasta! • #thevillagecooks #thevillagecookscookingschool #privateworkshop #thevillagecooksworkshops #gatheringslikethese #sharingtheartofgoodfood #siciliancuisine

For a few hours yesterday, it almost felt like I was back in Sicily, Italy! Almost!!! Ha! • I reminisced of fond times (in Sicily) while sharing with a wonderful group in yesterday’s ‘Italian Regional Cooking: Flavours of Sicily’. And I felt happy that I honoured Sicily’s prized ingredients in a three-course lunch! • Tonno (tuna) in Carpaccio di Tonno. • Hard wheat flour, almonds, & tomatoes in Busiate pasta con Pesto Trapanese (busiate pasta made of hard what flour with a pesto of almonds, tomatoes, garlic & basil). • Ricotta, chocolate, citrus fruit & candied fruit in Le Genovese di Erice (with a scoop of cassata gelato). Mouthwatering pastries created by Sicily’s most celebrated pastry baker - Maria Grammatico! • Additionally, we sipped Nero d’Avola vino (the most important red wine grape in Sicily), and nzuddi biscotti too with caffé! • Our next Italian Regional Cooking class is on Sunday, 1 August 2021. We will be travelling to Sardinia, and once again, I can’t wait to share the cuisine of this Italian Isola! • To book - link in bio profile! • Thanks to @mariapitton_ for some of the pics! • #thevillagecookscookingschool #thevillagecooks #italianinspiredcookingclasses #gatheringslikethese #italianfood #sicily #ilovesicily #sicilianfood #eatsicily #italianregionalcookingclasses #eatrealfood #myitalianheritage

This morning cooking class will involve travelling to Sicily through it’s food! Labeled ‘Flavours of Sicily’; here are just a few of the flavours of Sicily that we’ll be using for our three course lunch today; tuna, capers, ricotta, citrus (oranges & lemons), almonds, hard wheat flour (semola), candied citrus and vino with Nero d’Avola - the most important red wine grape of Sicily! • Sicily is one of my favourite places to visit in Italy, so I am so looking forward to sharing my love of it in today’s cooking class! • #thevillagecooks #thevillagecookscookingschool #italianinspiredcookingclasses #italiancooking #italianregionalfood #cucinapovera #thehappynow #sicily #sicilianfood #gatheringslikethese #simplepleasures

I am looking forward to our Gnocchi: Potato e Ricotta cooking class this coming Sunday. There will be some familiar faces and some new ones too!

I’m so looking forward to taking a group of lovely ladies with me to Puglia, Italy this coming Sunday.......well, through food anyway, at The Village Cooks studio! • I wish we were going to Puglia, but we can’t, so cooking & baking Pugliese cuisine is the next best thing! • This will be the start of a series of Italian Regional Cooking Classes at my little cooking school. After Puglia, we travel to Sicily in May for a sold out class! • Subscribe to my newsletter to be the first to know where in Italy we travel to next & to book your ticket!

I love summer produce and employing it simply in our meals! • Fresh slices of garden tomatoes, roasted capsicums, and basil leaves with burrata! Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a scatter of sea salt & black pepper! Add in some bread; toasted pane di casa or sourdough!

It was great to commence cooking classes last week for 2021 at my little cooking school @thevillagecooks! • We celebrated an Italian table for lunch with the best summer has to offer; eggplants, heirloom & roma tomatoes and basil all from my kitchen garden, and figs from my mum’s garden. • We created eggplant dip served with fresh oxheart tomatoes, few figs, salami and handmade focaccia for our first course. Roma tomatoes for our sugo which coated handmade strascinati pasta in our main dish, and to end crostata di Mandorla e fichi (fig & almond crostata)! • Come and join me for Italian inspired cooking & baking classes. • Link in bio for cooking class bookings! • #thevillagecookscookingclasses #italianinspiredcookingclasses #sharingtheartofgoodfood #gatheringslikethese #eatrealfood #madefromscratch #myitalianheritage #tastesgood #slowfoodmovement #inspiremyinstagram #myopenkitchen #seasonaleating #kitchengarden #eatwell #realfood #italianfood.

Bye bye 2020, you crazy year you! • Who would of thought it! The year started with the carry-over of bush fires, and then the pandemic! You couldn’t even script it really! Such an outlandish storyline! • Some have spoken of their silver linings, whilst others their loses! Whichever it was for you; I send you hugs and wish you well! May 2021 be a little lighter & even a bit brighter. • I am grateful that I was able to see many of you here, where we were able to cook/bake together! It’s what I love so much! I hope 2021 allows more of this with more of you! Well wishes from me to you.

A spot has become available for the last cooking class of the year, this Saturday, 19 December for An Italian Summer Lunch! • We won’t be making tuna crudo for a starter or lasagna for main or nougat semifreddo to end, as we did last Sunday for our ‘An Italian Christmas Special’ workshop, but I can assure you that we will cook & bake & eat just as good with all this glorious summer produce that is on offer! • To book the last spot; clink on link in my bio. • #thevillagecookscookingschool #thevillagecooksworkshops #sharingtheartofgoodfood #tastesgood #gatheringslikethese #cookingclasses #italianinspiredcookingclasses #eatmoremagic

It has literally taken two days to gain the energy (exhausted from the hot weather we experienced over the weekend) to post pictures from Sundays workshop; another Private Cooking Class made of family & friends! Always good banter! • Our Spring Italian Lunch saw the cross over of spring/summer produce! We employed juicy succulent peaches in our antipasto with prosciutto. Eggplant & Ricotta Lasagna for our main dish. And glorious apricots for a crostata di mandorla all’albicocca (apricot & almond tart)! • A great day despite the horrid windy hot weather!
