Cooking with Rosetta – The Queen of Vegetables: Eggplant
August 26 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this class we will make eggplant dishes from all over Southern Italy. We will begin our menu with eggplant “meatballs” found in Calabria and Sicily. We will then progress to risotto baked with eggplant and cheese, eggplant rolls filled with homemade ricotta and grilled eggplant as a side dish. We will conclude on the Amalfi coast with a unique dessert from that area, combining eggplant and chocolate!
