Lunch Club- Sicilian Style

Lunch Club- Sicilian Style

Learn to make Sicilian Cassata!

Tired of the same-old, same old?  Try thinking about lunch in a whole new way and sign up for Lunch Club!  In the same hour that you usually spend chomping down a sandwich while you look at your phone, you can be seated at Hot Stove Society while Chef instructor Bridget Charters cooks lunch for you!

Bridget, inspired by her years of living in working in Italy, is going to show you how to make a delicious three course lunch like one that you might eat in Sicily.  You’ll start lunch with a fennel olive salad, then move on to a traditional Southern Italian orecchiette pasta with broccoli rabe, garlic, and pecorino. (This happens to be a vegetarian lunch, not uncommon in this part of Italy.) Now you’re ready to move on to the crowning glory. Bridget will show you how to make a scrumptious Italian dessert that you rarely see in American restaurants- a classic Sicilian Cassata! This is a sponge cake layered with sweetened ricotta which can be studded with candied fruits and bits of chocolate. A cassata is always very special, whether served simply or glamorously embellished.  Fancy versions are wrapped with colored marzipan, but Bridget will show you how easy it is to make a simple cassata with a luscious chocolate glaze.

Go ahead and treat yourself to a special way to go out for lunch. Better yet, find a buddy and make it a lunch date!
