Class Description

In this cooking class, Riccardo will teach you how to make Cannelloni. A symbolic dish of the Italian Sunday lunch. 

The name cannelloni derives from "torch", the short tube that lets the water out at the mouth of the fountains.

There are many steps to do in this cooking class, such as making the pasta dough, cook the bechamel and prepare the ricotta and spinach finning. Then roll out the pasta, assemble the cannelloni and bake it. It seems difficult but with Riccardo’s instructions, it will be very easy.
