Italian Baking with The Coastal Italian

Presented by Davide Tonucci
About the class

We are welcoming Davide Tonucci (The Coastal Italian) back to Essential Ingredient Newcastle to prepare a delightful selection of Italian baked goods and sweets with you. This course is hands-on and you will learn a good selection of technical pastry skills as well as share in the joy that is Italian baking.

Your Menu…

  • Focaccia – the fluffiest flatbread imaginable, laden with good olive oil. Davide will demonstrate this dough with 2 classic toppings- Rosemary & Sea Salt or Olive & Cherry Tomato
  • Grissini – the classic Italian ‘breadstick’, think of them as crunchy vehicles for beautiful Prosciutto. Each student will make this dough and roll out ready to bake.
  • Cannoli – crispy parcels of the creamiest Ricotta, studded with nuts, chocolate or candied fruit. 
  • Crostoli – fried pastry? Of course! You can make this beautiful, light as a feather snack any time.
  • Tiramisu – Espresso, Cioccolate, Mascarpone, it doesn’t get much more classic. Each student will prepare a 1 litre container to take home for dinner.

The class will stop and enjoy a lunch of classic Italian anti-pasto, freshly baked Focaccia and a glass of vino.
