In this inspiring class, Silvia shares innovative ideas for a Pesach feast with an Italian twist.
Bringing to life an ancient but thriving cuisine, Silvia will demonstrate dishes from her new book Jewish Flavours of Italy. Recipes include world-renowned carciofi alla Giudia (Roman-Jewish style fried artichokes), zuppa imperiale di Pesach (chicken and beef soup with Italian-style matzah balls), delicious Roman abbacchio brodettato (lamb cutlets with a lemon and egg sauce), a delicate carrot and almond cake and Silvia’s charoset.

Private cooking lessons and
larger corporate and charity cookery demonstrations
Silvia´s cooking demonstrations and private cookery lessons are an informative and fun way to learn more about quality Italian Jewish cooking.
Priding herself as a 'cook' rather than a conventionally-trained 'chef', Silvia´s classes are popular for their emphasis on traditional home cooking which is open and accessible to everyone. The secret behind the interactive classes is 'real' food which you can smell, share and experience in a fun and relaxed environment. Dishes and recipes are described in their cultural and historical background adding an extra touch of interest, while Silvia´s approachable and charismatic teaching method will keep you captivated throughout.
Silvia also organises 5-day cookery courses in Umbria.
Private Cookery Lessons
From one-to-one tuition, to lessons for couples and groups of friends, Silvia´s bespoke classes and courses can be tailored from small, selected groups, to larger gatherings and parties.
Silvia will teach you the secrets of authentic Italian cooking in the comfort of your own kitchen with hands-on, personal guidance, and expert tips about where to source the best produce and ingredients. Preparations for each lesson are made simple and Silvia will bring all the necessary ingredients and materials. By the end you will have learnt how to cook three delicious dishes of your choice and enjoyed a freshly cooked meal. Simply choose three recipes from her Menu and contact Silvia to make your booking.
Prices for private lessons vary from £80 to £130 per person. A 10% discount applies for courses of 3 classes or more. Groups of 6 people or more have reduced price. Each lesson lasts 2-3 hours.
Gift vouchers are available for each of Silvia’s services and range in value. From private cooking lessons at home, to Silvia’s courses in Italy or catering for a special event, why not treat family or friends to a gift with a difference.
