Winter in Naples

Winter in Naples

We just had a wonderful cooking school at the Captain Freeman this past weekend. Our professional chef, Carol Edmondson continues to create a wonderful experience with plenty of helpful cooking tips as well as providing delicious recipes for the food cooked in the class. This class included pizza and antipasta, enjoyed with wine tasting after the class.

The full menu included Bruschetta with Roasted Peppers and Shaved Reggiano, Italian meats and cheeses on toasted bread,
Classic Pizza Margherita Pizza, Sea Scallops, Arugula and Pancetta Pizza, Salad with Roasted Eggplant, olives and Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette and the show stopper Berries with Zabaglione Sauce.

The class always enjoys watching the simple way to roast the peppers…..

Looking forward to our next two classes which includes:

Savory cuisine from Rome on March First where we will sample the classic cuisine of Rome influenced by it’s history and geography. Rome is the home of many religions and ethnic groups not unlike any major city. Their influences are felt in preparation unique to the region. Winter soups harvest flavors preserved from fall gardens. Pork is an essential ingredient fresh and preserved in Salumi of many types. Artichokes and eggplants are fried in olive oil to whet winter appetites. Capers and other pickled vegetables perk up the winter Roman table. A harvest of flavors to bring to our late winter menu along with the freshest of local foods and the best of our own local preserves.

On March 29th we will visit Avignon in the heart of Provence. True French country cuisine influenced by ingredients found daily in the market square. In March the mistral, a cold wind from the Alps, blows across Provence. Warming soups are a must. Spring lamb, winter greens, great cheeses and bread from ancient grains are the staples of early spring. Early greens are peeking through and lemony salads brighten spring tables. Wine poached winter fruits finish this hearty meal.

Bon Appetit!
