Italian Cuisine

Wow!  Have the weeks gone by.  It seems like I blink and two or more weeks have zooooooomed by.

Well I will try to play catch up over the next couple of weeks.  I still have a lot of photos to process.
I am going to post photos from our Italian section in International Cuisine for right now.
To up date you on what has gone on and what the student are doing: I had the honor of spending Friday February 5 at Foster High School with the culinary arts class of Ms. Yearby.  I was able to visit with five classes during the course of the day about being a chef, our culinary program and all sorts of fun things.  International Cuisine is over the students have moved into American Regional Cuisine.
Here are the photos from our Italian Section:

First on the menu:  Fettuccine alla Matriciana 
These photos are in order of how they show in my pictures:
Accompanied by: Focaccia con le Olive: An olive studded Focaccia or flatbread

As a part of the meal we had some wonderful fried  Fontina Risotto Balls

Our salad was a delightful Salad Nicoise

Somewhere along the way we also had a wonderful Pizza Rustica, which as you can tell by the photo is not your typical pizza!  It is filled with sliced meats, cheeses and features an egg custard base.

 Our meals in this section also included Spaghetti Alla Putanesca, spaghetti with olives, capers and anchovies
and Pollo alla Cacciatora: Chicken Hunter Style
Overall the students did a great job on these dishes.  We also made fresh ricotta and mascarpone cheese as a part of this section.  What fun.
I will post more photos soon.
Until then:  Happy Eating
