When most people think of meatballs, mounds of pasta doused in red sauce come to mind. Ironically, in Italy, it’s rare to see spaghetti and meatballs on the same plate. Polpette are savory appetizers or stand-alone entrees. Italy’s meatballs come in many shapes, sizes and sauces. They are made from pork, seafood and even vegetables.
This class offers two interesting options that will surely satisfy your taste buds. You will learn how to make authentic meatballs; how to choose your ingredients fresh, organic, vegetarian, meat, fish, gluten free, and vegan.
