Easter is a time of great celebration in Italy, with many special dishes that are reserved for these festivities. In this hands-on class you will create a fabulous menu made up of dishes from various different regions of Italy, including a delicious seafood dish from the city of Trieste, roast lamb stuffed with truffles from Umbria, the classic Torta Pasqualina of Ligura - a layered pie of ricotta, spinach or chard and eggs, and the sumptuously decorated Sicilian Cassata. It's a real Easter Feast, that we will enjoy together at the end of your class.

Please call the school to discuss any severe food allergies prior to booking a class online, we must speak to you before you visit the school if you have a severe allergy or severe dietary intolerance.

We will become as flexible as possible, where we can to remove a specific ingredient from a student’s recipe we will but we are unable to remove that ingredient for every student attending.

We handle all types of ingredients in the kitchen at Divertimenti and we are not able to completely allergen free environment, our kitchen is multi-purpose therefore this makes our kitchen unsuitable for those with life- threatening allergies, in such cases as these we would suggest getting in touch with the team to arrange a private lesson in your own home with one of our chefs. Please contact us for more information
