Special Event: Tomato Preserving Class

Sunday, 9 September 2018, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM | $100 + Taxes

Preserving fresh, in-season tomatoes to enjoy all year long is a quintessential Italian tradition. If you’ve ever wanted to try it yourself, here’s your chance to learn!

Join us for a special Sunday morning preserving class with chef Luciano Schipano, who will share his family recipe for making passata di pomodoro – the fresh tomato purée sauce you’ll find in every Italian cantina!

Over a mid-morning breakfast Luciano will explain the preserving process and divide the class into stations to wash, cut and lightly cook the tomatoes before we break for a simple lunch. After lunch, we will jar the tomatoes and tidy up, before guest leaves with 3 litres of their very own, hand-made passata!
