Cooking Class: Italian Winter Soups – SOLD OUT

November 12 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


During the winter months Italians love to keep warm with hearty, delicious, simple-to-make homemade soups. Versatile and healthy, soups keep perfectly for days – in fact, like ragù, they often taste even better a  day or two after they are made.

While there are countless varieties of soup across Italy, there are also some standards well known to all Italians. These classics are the focus of tonight’s class with chef Massimo Bruno.

Here are the soups we’ll be making:

Minestrone della nonna  – Every Italian family has it’s own (usually secret) recipe for this quintessential vegetable soup. Tonight Massimo will show you how it’s done in the Bruno household!

Ribollita – This recipe comes from Cucinato partner Gaia Massai, who grew up in Prato, a town just outside of Florence. It’a a hearty Tuscan soup made with beans, black kale (cavolo nero) and bread 

Zuppa di farro e funghi porcini – The nutty flavour of farro and the woody, earthy tones of porcini mushrooms for a delicious medley – it’s the perfect winter soup!

Vellutata di zucca – Squash soup with sage, parmigiano, and amaretti 

Massimo will make some focaccia to snack on during the class and we’ll sit down for a meal at the end of the class. When it’s done, we’ll pack up some jars of soup for everyone to enjoy at home.

WINE / CORKAGE – a selection of Italian wine will be available for purchase during the class. If you would like to bring your own wine there is a $15 corkage fee.
