I was born and raised in Southern Italy so la cucina meridionale has a special place in my heart. It's my comfort food!
Tonight we will be making some of my favourite dishes from the region of Calabria - the "toe of the Italian boot", as they say, an area that epitomizes Southern Italy. I hope you can join me!
Polpette di ricotta (ricotta balls in tomato sauce)
Melanzane ripiene (stuffed eggplant)
Strozzapreti con ragout di porcini (handmade pasta with porcini sauce)
Pesce alla diamantese (fresh cod with capers, tomatoes and olives)
Torta di ricotta
You're invited to bring your own wine to enjoy while we cook!
