Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

Mangiamo Italiano, Let's Eat Italian, is on of my fall cooking classes at Cooks of Crocus Hill in Edina. If you are looking for a great way to say good-bye to summer and greet fall, this class is just the one for you.

Italians love to eat with the seasons, and this menu does just that, taking full advantage of our late-summer harvest. I will show you how to prepare fresh and healthful seasonal vegetables, pasta and a traditional veal dish. We"ll wrap up our "buona serra" with a heart-healthful dark chocolate dessert.

The menu consists of Banga Cauda (antipasto of seasonal fresh vegetables with an olive-oil dip), crusty bread and artisanal cheeses. Capellini with fresh peas and Italian Prosciutto. Saltimbocca alla Romana (veal in a Marsala wine sauce). Sage Roasted potatoes and Torta Cioccolata.

To register for the class on line go to http://www.cooksofcrocushill.com/ or phone the store at 952-285-1903.

I hope to see you there On Sept. 1, 2009 at 6:00 p.m.

And if you can't attend that class I have others scheduled at Cook's of Crocus Hill for Oct. and Nov. just check out their web site.

Until then....

Buon appetito,

Carmela Tursi Hobbins
