summer aperitivo in july

Saturday, July 17 – Summer Aperitivo with Casa Mia

Summer is here! And what better way to celebrate than with a delicious aperitivo, before Casa Mia goes on a brief August hiatus? Gina and Eleonora–respectively natural wine lover and cheese connoisseur–will kick off the event with a tasting of two of their favorite natural wines from the region of Lazio, paired with two cheeses of the same region. But no aperitivo is complete with some fried goodness. Crispy, crunchy, melt in your mouth fritto misto is a highlight of any aperitivo. The versatile nature of this assortment allows us to pick and choose ingredients to our liking. Let us toast the summer with natural wine in one hand, fritto misto in the other, and cheese on our tongue!

Start time: 4:00 pm EST
Duration: 90 minutes
Instructor: Eleonora & Gina & Carolyn

Pollo alla cacciatora aka chicken cacciatore for July online classes

Saturday, July 24 – Pollo alla Cacciatora aka Chicken Cacciatore with Eleonora

Like many popular and widely-known recipes, the origin of Chicken Cacciatore belongs to Italy’s peasant culture. Typical of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, the ingredients are never quite the same from region to region. One thing is sure: the original recipe does not include tomatoes, only chicken, a little wine, some vinegar, garlic and rosemary (the simple ingredients farmers had on hand). In conclusion, during our 90 minute lesson we master the art of authentic pollo alla cacciatora, that is in the hunter’s style.

Start time: 4:00 pm EST
Duration: 90 minutes
Instructor: Eleonora
