The Cucina Bolognese class was great!

A good time was had by all in yesterday's class, there were explanations, demonstrations by our wonderful Chef Anna Gennari, lots of lively conversation among the participants, tasting and above all preparation and cooking!

Chef Anna Gennari was amazing in her ability to coordinate the preparation of so many dishes typically Bolognese. She shared many tips and tricks and certainly made things look easy! In the photo below, Chef Anna demonstrates how to remove stem and pistil from a zucchini flower in one step.
