Italian Cookery Evening Featured

AranciniOn a beautiful sunny evening, you might have thought you were in Italy, ten wonderful chefs gathered to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children which is the charity The Grove Independent School is supporting with the amazing School Council members.

The evening started by making pasta, a staple dish in Italy, using original pasta machines to thin out the endless sheets as one group managed to roll out one measuring over a metre! The filling provided an insight into the world of traditional cheeses by using ricotta and spinach alongside nutmeg and seasoning, a beautiful marriage Figaro would say… singing for us in the back ground with the superb operatic voice of Pavarotti.
The Arancini (rice balls filled with pesto and cheese from Sicily) provided an opportunity to get very messy, which most of the adults enjoyed by creating a culinary delight once fried, which resembled a scotch egg, albeit with an Italian twist.
Finally the last course in the form of Affogato al Caffé. This is a traditional dessert which involves using hot Italian coffee poured over good quality ice cream, topped with chopped nuts and Amaretti biscuits. What a finale to a beautiful night in which everyone learnt something new and raised money for such a worthy cause. The Next Culinary Fundraising event will be during the Autumn term 2015, do join us! Ms Casiraghi
