There’s nothing like some new inspiration to brush up on your cooking skills and change the weekly spag bol to something more exciting and exotic. The Pick n Pay Good Food Studio in Sandton is offering two new courses in July.
TOUR THROUGH EUROPE: ITALY
Capture the passion of Italy with Chef Danielle, who will share a winter menu inspired by the Italian regions. Discover the freshness, simplicity and lack of pretension of Italian cuisine.
For starters there’s a herbed arancini with sun-dried tomato aioli and a welcome drink to get the culinary juices going. Then you’ll up the game with a butternut pansotti with buttery wild mushrooms followed by a garlic roasted chicken with charred lemon salsa verde, served with a creamy polenta, greens and garlic confit. A chocolate espresso martini is a great way to wrap it up.
Date: July 3, 9am - 12 noon Cost: Normally R550 per person, the school is offering a special for Sunday Times readers at R500 per person. Bookings: Call 011 998 3310 or go to goodfoodstu[email protected]
