Southern Italian

1 student

Welcome & Overview

I absolutely adore southern Italian cuisine.
It’s light, colourful, flavourful and fresh and it makes the most of beautiful summer vegetables and delicious seafood.
In this course you’ll learn how to make Caprese and Olive Salad, traditional Caponata with Crostini or how about Polpette di Melanzane with Orzo (delicious herby aubergine and parmesan rounds with a simple and classic tomato sauce), or my pan fried Squid with Chilli.
And we are making Fresh Egg Pasta too! Farfalle and Tagliatelle – what a skill to learn! and a delicious Pesto Trapenese – all the way from Trapetto in Sicily to serve with your fresh home-made pasta. All for you to Cook with Curiosity, with me, Catherine Fulvio
Buon Appetito!

I would encourage you to start at the beginning and take each recipe one by one. At the end of each recipe, make some notes with regards to how you did. What was your feedback on the recipe?
We all have different tastes, maybe you added more sweetness into the dish or maybe you added more seasoning, or changed some ingredients to suit your tastes. I would encourage you to make notes to this effect so that when you are repeating the recipe you have a perfect recipe for your taste.
And do share photographs of your finished dish, tag me Catherine Fulvio and don’t forget to use the hashtag #CatherineFulvioOnlineCooking and #cookwithcuriosity

Do you have any questions, need support?
You will find lots of tips to company each recipe both on the recipe sheet and in the audio.
