Cooking with a crew

During Jill and Drew’s visit over Christmas, we took a cooking class along with friends Molly and Giuseppe. Paul was originally planning to join but due to a broken ankle (more on this later) he had to sit it out, literally. But that just meant more chocolate cake for me, er, the rest of us.

And don’t worry about Paul on this night; Shiyama our lovely housekeeper and nanny brought him dinner on a tray. A tray! Meanwhile, the rest of us were paying money to cook our own dinner…

It was actually really fun–and tasty.

Pasta with Roman style artichokes were first.

Plus a baked pumpkin dish and Roman chicken–one of my favorite ways to eat chicken prepared with peppers.

And cake. The funniest part about the cake was this: it’s the only time I’ve had a chocolate torte in Italy that was actually moist (aka delicious) but the instructor kept saying how it would be much better the following day when it had time to air out.

Oh well, Valeria really knew her stuff and I’d recommend her to anyone. In fact, here goes:
