This class will cover two great loves of Italy: mozzarella and pasta.
Lourdes, owner of Fiore di Nonno (a local cheese producer of Italian cheeses), and Valeria, Somerville resident, are both Italian Americans with roots in Hoboken, NJ where both of their families immigrated to from Italy. In the 20th century, many Italians immigrated to Hoboken to start a new life. Italians brought along their hometown recipes, foods, and traditions. Lourdes’s grandfather opened his own shop, Fiore, which is still open today and selling what many still name the #1 mozzarella around. Valeria’s family, who are also regulars at Fiore’s, made it a point to keep their food traditions alive, including pasta and foccacia making.
Lourdes will teach you how to make your own delicious mozzarella. Valeria will show you how to make orecchiette, an ear-shaped pasta from the region of Puglia, where her family is from. Once we’re done cooking, we’ll sit down and enjoy a delicious meal together. You’ll also leave with recipes to make at home. All tickets will be sold via our online store only!
