Sunday May 30th:  Aperitivo

I am one of the very lucky members to have attended Terra Madre this past fall in Turin, Italy.  A light bulb went off in my head during a taste education class I attended on the Bitters of Italy.  I knew this was the way I wanted to share what I learned from Italy’s Bella Vita.  You don’t have to be a Slow Food member to attend.  Bring a partner, a friend, or come solo and learn something new about slowing down and taking note of life’s fine details.

The Details:

This class takes place in my (Jessica Bongard’s) home kitchen located in Jericho, VT.  I’ll be leading  you in a class which will illustrate several examples of aperitivo worthy of your own bella vita.  I’ll share my favorite bitter cocktails paired with insanely delicious and accessible aperitivi.  Slow Food VT members get a $5 cash in-hand discount upon arrival.

The Recipes:

The Aperitivo experience: the drinks and the snacks.

Three mini drinks and five snacks

1) Campari & Chinotto  2) Carpano  3) Fernet Branca & Prosecco

The snacks:  goat’s cheese fritters and warm olive tapenade

                     crostini with fresh mozzarella, anchovies and tomatoes

                     polenta crostini topped with grilled escarole and proscuitto

                     onion frittata with red pepper, arugula and vincotto drizzle

chocolate salami

What you’ll get:

You’ll go home with a full stomach and recipe packets including photos of each dish taken by yours truly.  And you’ll leave with an obligation to create the time and space for your own aperitivo.  Italians are well versed in living the good life and us Slow Foodies are diligent pupils.
