Meet your host Amalia at her ancient house built in the XVIII century. You will start your culinary experience by picking a few herbs from Amalia’s garden before joining her at her modern kitchen to learn to cook regional Parma dishes from her mother’s recipes. Your cooking demonstration involves watching your host prepare tortelli and dessert and will last about two hours. Some of the dishes for your meal may have been prepared in advance.
Your homemade regional meal will include an antipasto, such as Parma ham and Parmigiano cheese (that Amalia's family produces), tortelli d’erbette (a typical Parma pasta stuffed with ricotta, parmesan and green, leafy bietola), a main of beef carpaccio or pollo scallopini in a white wine sauce and a side of verdure grigliate (grilled vegetables) or a fresh tomato and eggplant salad. It will conclude with a dessert of crostata di marmellate (prune or apricot tart) and torta con ricotta con frutti di bosco.
