An early Easter at the CiCi-CoCo Kitchen

We were joined on 18th March by six enthusiastic cooks to enjoy our special Easter cookery course, Italian Style. If you missed the course the next course is ‘Flavours of Calabria,’ on 10th May, 2014. Calabria is a region I know well as it is where my father grew up and I spent many happy hours cooking with my family! A taster of the Easter menu is below….
