Modern Italian cooking

Classic Italian cuisine is given a modern, seasonal and seafood twist in this lunchtime class.  Share a relaxed Saturday lunch with us at the Seafood School showcasing the freshest NZ seafood complimented with the vibrant flavours of Italian cuisine.  An Italian tradition, join us together with your fellow ‘cooks’ to enjoy warm conversation, good wine (Babich of course) and beautifully prepared seafood.  Start with a deliciously fresh salad of crispy pancetta, calamari, rocket and radicchio, green apple, garlic parmesan crostini, caper lemon and black olive dressing followed by Tagliatelle pescatore –  ocean fresh seafood medley, cockles and clams, reduction, fresh tomatoes and roasted garlic.

Was a little nervous about the whole ‘cooking thing’ however the chef and the people I cooked with made things a breeze – plus heaps of fun.
