slow food

To return to Adults Courses

The slow food movement started Italy in the late 20th century and has spread across the globe.  The premise being that we should all be trying to use local ingredients as well as ancient varieties of fruit & vegetables to help kerb the condensing of varieties hrough industrialisation; and also embracing the ideal of nose to tail eating.  In this class we will cook recipes using ancient grains, unusual cuts of meat and use traditional recipes.

Students work in pairs and some recipes will be made together as a whole group. We will sit down afterwards and enjoy eating the fruits of our labour with a glass of wine or beer. 

Typical recipes covered

  • Injeera with spiced chickpeas
  • Cholera pie
  • Beef rillettes

Skills include

  • Making the most of the lesser-known, under-loved cuts of meat to make an unctuous and delicous stew 
  • Making Ethiopean Injeera using teff flour and the delicous traditional spiced topping
  • Discovering an old Valaisanne dish made from ingredients found in every homestead
  • Discussing the Italian Agrotourism from where the slow-food movement grew up

Prices for 3h (2-3 recipes can be covered in this time)

  • Private lesson for up to 6 people - 895 chf 
  • Private lesson for up to 12 people - 1250 chf
