Course Date Saturday 24 November Course Time 9:15 AM - 2:30 PM

As you would expect, the Italians do their Christmas with style and that includes the food. Our good friend Mariella Bliss is back with a range of delicious and beautiful Italian dishes that make perfect edible gifts for friends and family this Christmas.

Using only the best and most authentic ingredients you will make the classic panforte di Sienna, chock full of beautiful almonds and candied fruit, fresh from Naples market. For a savoury something, we have a delicious smoky tomato ketchup made with spiced vinegar, for you to make, you will never go back to shop-bought ketchup once you've tasted this! Of course chocolate has to feature so we'll make mini pistachio torrone, with their bright green and dark chocolate good looks, we also show you how to dust them with gold for the ultimate Christmas gift. As if that wasn't enough we'll squeeze in our signature ricciarelli cookies, fragrant with Sicilian lemons, gluten free and pretty as a picture.

We'll make struffoli, a traditional Christmas dish from Southern Italy. It has to be seen to be believed, so colourful and quirky. You'll enjoy that with a glass of prosecco, beautiful fresh olives and a slice of fresh focaccia of course.

Everything is wrapped up and be-ribboned for you to take home, ready to give away or simply keep for yourself and enjoy.

We are sorry but the event is now fully booked
