"La Dispensa" is an Italian word meaning pantry or larder, a place where people have long stored their canned and preserved food to stock up for the winter months. In this class, which is the third in a series we are calling "Cook Like a Farmer," we will explore recipes using the preserved bounty of the season's harvest. See your hard work of the summer become treasures on the holiday table.
Gail Hobbs-Page, owner, cheesemaker, and former chef will use Domenica Marchetti's newest cook book, "Preserving Italy" as the recipe resource for this hands-on workshop. The class will be aided by Diego Ghitti, propieter of one of the top bed and breakfasts in Genova, Italy.
