Regional Italian Cuisine, with Mary Ann Esposito
Led by Mary Ann Esposito, host of Ciao Italia, America’s longest-running cooking show, this course will introduce students to regional Italian foods. Emphasis will be on identifying key food ingredients of northern, central, and southern regions, as well as how these regions are defined and how their characteristics are utilized in classic recipes. In addition, a goal will be to differentiate the various regional cooking styles like casalinga cooking versus alta cucina cooking. The course features selected readings, online lectures and interactive materials, exclusive cooking demonstrations, and three live cooking sessions with Mary Ann.
