Angela is very very excited to be commencing, at The Village Cooks, a series cooking and baking classes to celebrate Angela’s favourite (and most influential) Italian cookbook authors! Angela’s cooking and baking has be shaped by many things; her Southern Italian heritage, her professional training as a pastry chef & experience working in commerical kitchens, but by far, her Italian cookbook (which there are many), have given Angela a greater understanding of la cucina povera!
“I am extremely excited to be sharing the cooking and baking from some of my favourite Italian cookbook authors. In each class, we will celebrate one Italian cookbook author that has influenced me! I will choose an entreè, main and dessert from the Italian author’s cookbook/s and recreate these dishes in the class. My first celebrated Italian cookbook author is Anna Del Conte! I love Anna’s authentic Italian provincial cooking & baking style and it has greatly shaped the way I cook!”
This is a (mostly) demonstration & (some) hands-on class.
Angela Palermo, founder & teacher of The Village Cooks, trained as a pastry chef and has worked for the likes of Rachel Grisewood (Manna From Heaven, Marrickville), Sam Marineve (Marineve Pasticceria, Five Dock), Lorraine Godsmark (Yellow Bistro, Potts Point), and Andy Bunn (Cafe Sopra, Waterloo).
Her cooking and baking is heavily influenced by her Italian heritage and growing up in a family that grew its own food and created dishes from their own produce. Angela shares her love of simple, home-style cooking & baking with students at her cooking school, The Village Cooks, & teaches Pasta Classes at Cornersmith, Sydney.
