Learning to cook like the Italians...

Piatto del giorno: Trenette al pesto and Bonet
Getting school credit to eat = legit. Today we cooked for the first time in my Food of Italy class - and it was AWESOME. Throughout the course of the semester, we will be preparing typical dishes from different regions of Italy, as each region has its own history and style of cooking that we'll learn about.

Today, we prepared food typical of the Northwest regions of Piedmont & Valle d'Aosta - Trenette al Pesto (above) and Bonet (a caramel coated custard) for dessert (right). The coolest part was that we made everything from scratch - the pasta, pesto sauce & dessert!
