Verdure – Quick Italian Vegetarian

Presented by Kelly Syms
About the class

Verdure – the Italian word for Vegetables, and so much more. Verdure means vibrant, lush vegetable gardens brimming with peak produce. It can also conjure up the rolling hills of Tuscany in all their green glory. We are going to explore the bountiful world of Italian Vegetarian in this 2-hour whirlwind tour.

Your Menu includes…

  • Focaccia Col Formaggio – thin and crispy focaccia stuffed with sfogliata cheese and topped with olive oil and flaky sea salt
  • Pepperonata with Vin Cotto and Capers – the perfect capsicum and tomato ragout you’ll use everywhere (with our focaccia, sourdough, eggs, in pasta, on polenta, the possibilities are endless!)
  • Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Raisins – agrodolce style! Who says eating your greens has to be boring?
  • Hasselback Butternut Squash with Crispy Chickpeas, Salsa Verde Whipped Ricotta and Chili Oil – a stunning table centerpiece


Take a seat at our table devoted to the art of Italian Vegetarian – enjoy a glass of wine and imagine yourself walking over the cobblestones of a city alive with music, laughter and food!
