On September 9, my wife and I joined a group for a cooking class taught by Eleanor at Ecco La Cucina. It was a busy day for Ecco La Cucina as Jean was teaching a class later in the day and her associate Eleanor conducted the class. The entire experience was fabulous. It was more like a group of friends meeting to cook a meal in someone's kitchen than a class. Very hands on!
Eleanor was a delightful teacher and she communicated her love for the region and its food so well. We made and ate bread salad (don't knock it until you've tried it), fresh pasta using our hands,an Atlas pasta machine and a funky device called a chitarra. A fruit tart was made first and eaten last. The main course was local chicken that we braised with tomatoes and olives. Local wines were served with dinner.
The school is located in the Tuscan countryside - an easy drive from Siena, Florence or in our case from Montepulciano/Pienza area.
Treat yourself to a wonderful day with Jean and Eleanor at Ecco La Cucina.
