What you'll learn in this cooking techniques class:

Join us for our new series, Cook the Book, where you will learn how to prepare recipes from a different cookbook each month in our very own kitchen. These classes will give you the opportunity to dive into the cuisines, flavors, methods and techniques of well-known cookbooks, both locally and nationally, that are dear to our hearts and inspire our culinary point of views. 

This month we welcome Lisa Caponigri, author and Italian lifestyle expert, into our kitchen for a demonstration class full of fun and culinary enlightenment as she teaches you how to prepare a Sicilian feast from her book, This Is Sunday Dinner: 52 Seasonal Italian Menus.

Lisa's beautiful new cookbook features a fresh and seasonal approach that reflects the cuisines of Piedmont (winter), Campania (spring), Sicily (summer), and Tuscany (fall). Throughout the book, Lisa showcases Italy’s varied and abundant produce, from summery artichokes, apricots, figs, and the famous San Marzano tomato to hearty roasted meats and rich risottos to ward off the cold. The entire book brims with Lisa’s energy, her reminiscences of living in Italy, anecdotes about her family, and all the advice needed to get a spectacular Sunday dinner on the table—every Sunday of the year.

Lisa's recipes featured in class include:

  • Crostini con Olive Nere Fritti di Lisa (Lisa’s Fried Black Olive Crostini)
  • Bucatini con Cavolfiore (Bucatini with Cauliflower)
  • Pesce Grilliata con Salsa Verde Siciliana (Grilled Swordfish with Sicilian Green Sauce)
  • Torta di Olio di Oliva (Olive Oil Cake)
