Cooking Class in Florence

November 21, 2017
by CEA MOJO
CEA offers a variety of fun and cultural academic activities. I decided to take part in the cooking class offered to us. It was a three hour class, but defiantly worth it. We started out by creating the 'dough' for our fresh pasta. All you need to make fresh pasta is eggs, flour and a little bit of salt.

 Cutting the pasta
 
 There is never enough pasta

While the 'dough' was resting, we started to work on our appetizer which was an eggplant souffle.
 Buon Appetito

While the eggplant souffle baked in the oven, we started to work on the Ragu for our fresh pasta. Fun Fact: in Italy, you will find Ragu on the menu instead of Bolognese. They are very different from each other. To me, Ragu reminds me more of chili because it is much thicker and more chunkier like chili. While Bolognese, it mostly just meat and more liquid.
 Making Ragu

While the ragu was cooking, we started to make our dessert which was a delicious Chocolate Souffle. I highly recommend that you take every opportunity to do all the fun activities that CEA offers at the location you are studying abroad in!
