Celebrating Carciofi (Artichokes) & Fave (Broad Beans) – Friday, 18 September 2020


Friday, 18 September 2020
10am till 2pm

Due to the recent government restrictions surrounding social distancing for the COVID-19 pandemic, this class has been scheduled for 4 attendees only. This class will only go ahead pending the phase and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

Join me as I share two of my favourite spring vegetables; carciofi (artichokes) & fave (broad beans). If it wasn’t for these two, spring just wouldn’t be the same for me!

There will be Southern Italian (Calabrese) home-style cooking, where I will share a few of my (childhood) favourite ways to enjoy artichokes & broad beans. We will then sit outdoors  (alfresco style) together to enjoy our wondrous pranzo; sampling the joys that is artichokes & broad beans with a glass (or two) of vino.

There will also be lots of chatting, laughing and learning along the way. So come join me! I’d love to share this day with you.
