Pasta-lovers and aficionados of Italian cuisine are invited to pop along to Cookie this weekend (26-28 February) when the eatery plays host to an Umbrian Food Festival, including a demonstration of how to prepare the perfect home-made pasta and gnocchi.
This weekend Claudio Piccirilli and staff from his Umbrian agriturismo farm Piana delle Selve bring traditional Umbrian dishes to Glasgow for the first time.
In addition to a pasta and gnocchi-making demonstration on Friday morning, Cookie will be explaining how to cook a range of traditional Umbrian cuisine, including meat preparation, sauces and cakes.
Cookie’s co-owner, Domenico del Priore, said, “Our Umbrian guests only know how to prepare food from scratch. It is important to them that their livestock is killed and prepared by them for your table.
“Claudio and his staff are bringing all the ingredients they need to replicate their Umbrian kitchen and stock the shelves of Cookie, from ducks, guinea hens, chicory, lentils from Montecchio, pulses, flours, eggs, jams, bottled tomatoes, capers, wine and olive oil.”
Also on offer over the weekend is a range of Umbrian specialities, including a variety of typical salami, toasted bread and omelettes with aromatic herbs, to handmade egg pasta such as tagliolini and tagliatelle with goose and wild boar sauce and a variety of lasagne and cannelloni filled with fresh vegetables.
