Italian entertaining – Cicchetti masterclass with...

$170.00

It’s time to get acquainted with Cicchetti, the small Italian snacks that you really do need in your life.

You’ll often hear Cicchetti described as “Italy’s version of Spanish tapas”, which is not too far off but not quite correct also. Cicchetti (meaning ‘little things’) are bar snacks and they are the delicious bites on the counters of the casual bars in Venice and its surrounds. It is these bars where people regularly step in for small glasses of vino and the vino is enjoyed with Cicchetti. The term is contextual, referring not so much to what you’re eating as to where. Fried olives served at the table pre-dinner: that’s antipasto. Offered alongside a drink in a bar? That’s Cicchetti.

Unlock the delicious joys of Cicchetti with Pia Gava (MasterChef alumni). Pia has been creating Cicchetti in her kitchen for many years. Her delicious menu will be varied and will feature:
