Italian Baking with Emiko Davies

Join Emiko Davies for an evening of baking beautiful desserts featured in her two books Aquacotta and Tortellini at Midnight.

You will make a pear and ricotta tart which Emiko writes is 'ínspired by the delicious pears and the classic ricotta tarts from southern Tuscany and Lazio's Maremma area, which have a long shepherding and cheese making history (hence the ricotta)".

You also make a buttery apple cake which comes from her "Tuscan mother in law's handwritten recipe book and was the very first one she wrote down in it".

Emiko will also demonstrate the making of mascarpone, traditionally only made in winter, and ever so superior to the shop-bought variety. As she comments ÿou will never go back to a store bought version!".

Don't miss this chance to spend an evening baking with Emiko and learning about the rich regional traditions of baking and cheesemaking in Italy.
