Do you have the habit to prepar meals on Sunday to enjoy them every day of the week?
Have you ever checked how long can ready meals be refrigerated for?
It’s then very importantly to warm those meals up at a very high tempeŕature, to kill eventual bacteria.
Here is a very interesting article I found where it’s stated the ready meals or leftovers can’t be refrigerated for more than 3 or 4 days and that they need to be refrigerated no longer than 2 hours after finishing to cook them.
DO YOU KNOW? What’s called “Italian dressing” or “Italian seasoning” in America, it’s not actually an Italian recipe. Traditionally lettuce or what we call “insalata mista” (lettuce, sliced carrot, tomatoes) is served with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, white or red wine vinegar, salt and sometimes pepper. Balsamic Vinegar is a recent introduction to Italian tables, more common in the North of Italy. I noticed that if you are in north Italy, the ingredients used to dress lettuce or what we call INSALATA are less flavourful. I really don’t know why. My dressing’s ingredients for tomatoes are: EVOO, garlic, salt, parsley and basil mixed with sliced tomatoes in a bowl and let it sit 1 hour in the fridge. My lettuce dressing is salt, EVOO, white wine vinegar, sometimes mixed with plain regular yogurt and some nuts.
It’s warm outside and the sun is shining longer! Spring is flourishing and we are excited to spend some time outside, even if just in our yard or balcony.
While we are waiting patiently for better times, here is my NEWS:
Spring Break Children Classes were a success! Thanks to all the children who had fun cooking with me from Italy and from Germany.

Vouchers and gift cards can be bought all year long.
Private classes no longer have the same price of weekly scheduled cooking classes. New rates include: BASIC fee for a private cooking class is 50€, (discounted to 40€ for military ID holders), and then is 35€ each participant joining, (military ID holder discount applies as well, which is 25€ per participant).
Method of payment for private cooking classes: when we set the class, I will send you an email with the link to pay via Credit Card.
All scheduled classes will have the same price, unless it’s specified. It is 30€ per participant (discounted to 25€ for military ID holders).
Method of payment of cooking classes in the calendar: You will find the button to click and pay with PayPal on my website, in the notes you can notate your class choice or send me an email on which class you are attending. I will email you the ingredients list and the Zoom link to the desired class. If you prefer direct credit card payment, email me the name of the cooking class, and the method of payment for the cooking classes. I will send you the link for paying with your credit card.
I need your feedback and input: Would you be interested in subscribing to recorded cooking classes that you’d be able to directly access at your convenience? You would have access to 8 cooking classes a month for 3 months paying a discount of 35% off, saving money and giving you the ability to download the cooking classes for availability on your computer or device! Please send me a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know your thoughts on this.
