How to make Garganelli in Italy with Mama Isa
Garganelli

The ingredients are a special Wheat Flour 00 (doppio zero) and Organic Eggs.
You can make garganelli at home:
1- Sift the wheat flour 00 and knead vigorously with eggs.
2- Let to rest the garganelli dough for 30 minutes
3- Roll out into a thin "sfoglia" pasta sheet (2 mm), and cut in squares (large 5-6 cm)
4- With a special garganelli utensil (pettine = comb), roll obliquely on a wooden stick, and then make the characteristic ridges with a special garganelli-tool. The ridges, made with a "pettine", hold the sauce better than a simple smooth surface.
5- Boil in salted water.
6- Toss the Garganelli with an Italian Sauce(or Bolognese Sauce or Pesto Sauce or another tasty Italian sauce).

The name "garganelli" derives from the word "garganel" (=chicken’s gullet) which the ridged garganello resembles.
There is a famous legend about the origin of garganelli: A poor housewife had a cat, whose cat ate all the filling for the tortellini she was making. Her guests had already arrived. She had already cut the pasta squares for making tortellini. In a moment of great inspiration, she rolled the squares around a stick and then over the "pettine" comb  that every housewife possessed!

The International Day of Italian Cuisine: the dish of the year is Tiramisu - January 17th, 2013


January 17th, 2013: Today is the International Day of Italian Cuisine and the dish of the year is Tiramisu.

International Day of Italian Cuisine: Tiramisu at Mama Isa's Cooking Classes in Venice Italy
The International Day of Italian Cuisine, the dish of the year is Tiramisu

Tiramisu = Ti ra mi sù (tee-rah-mee-so͞o, with the accent grave over U. In Italy the people spell tiramisù with an accent on the u, and not tiraMIsu. The translation of Tiramisu is pick me up, to mean an energy booster, due to its reputed aphrodisiac powers and its restorative and nutritious properties!! So Tiramisu is a perfect dessert for Valentine's Day.

Tiramisù is one of the most famous dessert in the world, with an irresistible appeal. It's really hard to resist Tiramisù wink!!!
It's very interesting how to make the REAL and AUTHENTIC Tiramisu.
Tiramisu was born near Venice, in Treviso, in the Veneto region, and the real, authentic and classic recipe includes Mascarpone cheese, Italian Ladyfingers (called in Italy "savoiardi") dipped in Italian Coffee, Sugar, Eggs, Cocoa Powder and absolutely not liqueur (NO Marsala wine, NO Cointreau,.....). Looking for Valentine's Day recipes? Take immediately a cooking class about the art of tiramisu making.

The best way to enjoy Tiramisu and to learn how to make this famous dessert is going where it was born: in Italy! Impress your family and your friends with a special home-made Tiramisu.

So Mama Isa's Cooking Classes is very proud about the Tiramisu and she offers a special hands-on Tiramisu Class about the art of Tiramisu Making. A delicious "souvenir" from Venice: a lesson in making Tiramisu!

Take a look at Mama Isa's Cooking Classes Venice Italy about the real Tiramisu

Food Tourism & Culinary Tourism | Our Experience at Mama Isa's Cooking Classes in Venice Italy

Food Tourism & Culinary Tourism 


Travelers are hungry for food tourism!
In Italy I think that it's very important to develop more programs of interest to hungry travelers (food tourism, culinary tourism, cooking experience, market tour.....). There is a growing tendency among tourists to have more interest in authenticity, in particular about the food and about the real and genuine traditional dishes!
Food is a living tradition for me.
I founded my cooking school because I'm so proud of Italian Food Culture: it is a great part of Intangible Cultural Heritage, in particular in Italy.
It's my experience to live the enthusiasm of my cooking guests: they're super excited and at the end of the cooking class they're happy because they had spent a different day as an important part of their adventure travel.
