REGIONAL ITALIAN CUISINE
Italy is made up of twenty regions with distinct characteristics. Local cooking preferences and customs are shaped by geographic, historical, and climatic differences.
In this class, we will focus on a different region each week, exploring the culture and history of each region through its' food.
We will prepare dishes from the following categories:
Il Primo (First Course)- most often the antipasto course consists of cold dishes, and the primo course is usually a hot dish like pasta, risotto, gnocchi or soup.
Il Secondo (Second Course)- now comes the main dish, as Americans would refer to it as, of meat, fish or poultry. The type of meat that was served traditionally depended on the region. Fish- islands and coastal; veal, pork,, and chicken- northern; wild game- regions throughout Italy; beef- became more common after WWII.
Contorno (Side Dishes)- usually served at the same time as the secondo, the contorno course consists of cooked vegetables. A salad is often served as well, which may seem a bit different since Americans typically serve salad before the main dish, not with.
Formaggio e Frutta (Cheese and Fruit)- the first introduction of the dessert courses begins with cheeses and fruits paired together. This can help clean the diners' palettes in preparation for the real desserts that will soon follow.
Dolce (Sweet)- the true dessert course.
