Open Farm Sunday is coming / June 05th 2016

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 30th, 2016 by liberatethelasagna

Slide1Sandy Lane Farm is perhaps the most quintessentially British Farm. Close your eyes and imagine the farm of your dreams… that’s Sandy Lane. June 5th is Open Farm Sunday and your chance to visit the farm. On the traditional family run farm there will be tractor rides (don’t miss the commentary by Charles – farmer extraordinaire), rare breed animals and amazing vegetables… it really is a day not to be missed.

CiCi-CoCo will be there with some delicious new Italian inspired vegetarian dishes using some of the local ingredients from the farm… something to compete with the traditional burgers and sausages (those will be there too!)
We hope to see you there for an amazing day out on the most beautiful farm in the Bucks/Oxfordshire Borders.

Giuliana x

Southern Italian Lunch / Cookery Course

Posted in Food People, Food Places, Food Products, Food Stories, Kitchen News, Uncategorized with tags , , on May 2nd, 2014 by liberatethelasagna

……………………………………………………………………………………
Southern Italian Lunch
Our next cookery course is on Tuesday 13th May 10-3pm. / £95pp
Beam Cottage Kitchen, Cuddington. Bucks
……………………………………………………………………………………

Our next cookery course is based on a Southern Italian Lunch and we will explore dishes from Calabria where I was lucky enough to spent my summers with my Nonna … e-mail me at thecook@cici-coco.com.

We will be using the very in vogue ingredient ‘Nduja. It is a product I grew up with in Calabria and on all the coolest London menus right now!… it is a spicy hot, smokey spreadable pork sausage. It is a fantastically versatile ingredient, perfect as the base for pasta sauces, spread in bread, mixed with pasta. At its most simple it is a mix of pork, sweet pepper and hot peppers (the peppers have a very specific taste and smell from been grown in the Calabrian sun.)

Here is a picture of me swimming with my Papa in Calabria… those were the days! Giuliana x

Nduja. An ingredient we will be using on our cookery course.
