Where better to learn about cooking than in Italy? That's what my sister and I did on our recent trip to Lucca, in Tuscany. Taught by Chef Giuseppe Mazzocchi, we started early where all good cooks start, at the market.
We followed our trip to the market with a jaunt to a panetteria. Look at that bread for our bruschetta.
Many of the people in our class were cooking class veterans, including my sister. But there is always more to learn.
The chef actually worked for many years here in Texas.
Risotta with Leeks and White Truffle Butter. Veal Saltimbocca.
Bucchelatto and Lemon Custard.
It was a wonderful day.
