Dear Hostesses,
The fantasy kosher cooking trip to Italy and/or France that you have always imagined can finally come true!  Experience the aromas of the  village markets, visit ancient synagogues, palaces, and culminate each day with a hands on cooking class from master chefs in Italy and France. Learn about the Jewish history of the region and meet with Jewish community members there. You will also have time to squeeze in some shopping in the local towns.
Many members of the Sephardic community here in Brooklyn have attended this week long kosher culinary experience in Italy and Frances, and came back with rave reviews. All of the culinary chefs have taught cooking classes at the Sephardic Community Center in Brooklyn.
You deserve this treat.  Better hurry before it gets sold out….

Kosher Cooking in Tuscany:

La Cucina Kasher in Toscana is the ultimate combination of a kosher cooking program in Tuscany, shopping, sightseeing and experiencing the true feeling of being a guest in Italy, not a tourist. You will meet with leaders of the Jewish community of Florence. Both the novice and experienced cook will feel comfortable in an informal, fun environment. A non-cooking spouse or friend may accompany you, and will participate in all activities and meals.

 There are five days of cooking, hands-on, three hours each, specializing in Tuscan and regional cooking. Classes are in English and printed recipes are provided. Emphasis will be on preparation, presentation and the historical aspects of cooking. Following each class, you will partake of the meal that has been prepared, accompanied by the appropriate wines. A visit to the open air markets will allow you to learn about and select ingredients to be used in class. At the completion of the program, you will be presented with a certificate.

 Cristina Blasi and Gabriella Mari are teachers, winetasters, olive oil experts and authors of a cookbook relating to the cooking of ancient Rome.They are the owners of the prestigious cooking school in Florence, Scuola di Arte Culinari© “Cordon Bleu©˜, where the classes will be held.

    My husband and I were on both of the cooking trips that Ralph Sloane organizes. They were a lot of fun, great way to cook and eat kosher and sightsee. For Provence we took our own group of 10 friends. Memorable trips. Linda Shamah
