Once upon a time…Sapori e saperi delle terre italiane
Back in 2017, we collected recipes from our talented instructors who, having spent their whole life in various regions of Italy, have contributed to an incredible collection of culinary traditions. We are now making this collection available for you!
Culinary traditions represent a distinct part of the Italian identity, creating a fascinating narrative of the country’s different regions. That’s why a few years ago we felt that – as instructors of language and culture – we should share those recipes with our most loyal learners. Back then, Marco Artini was our dedicated Chef, and ScuolaScuola hosted a series of dinner events at its main location in Leslieville, Toronto. We are incredibly thankful for the opportunity we had to share delicious Italian food, learn new skills in the kitchen, and to teach useful Italian vocabulary for both cooking and for engaging in lively conversation around the dinner table.
On the occasion of the annual celebration of The Week of Italian Cuisine, and coincident with worldwide restrictions on family-style meals or outings to fancy Italian restaurants – we have decided to offer our precious recipes to the world, so everybody can replicate them from the comfort of their home kitchen.
