This season of èCucina was also important for a further step in the field of eco-sustainability of the cooking school.
In fact, for some years now, Martina and Ale have been committed to taking a series of steps towards greater school ethics and sustainability. Like having eliminated all non-biodegradable plastic containers, the use of organic and biodynamic vegetables etc.
This year, thanks to the collaboration with Carlo Alberto Menini, we had the opportunity to use exclusively “natural, ethical and sustainable” meats. We have rediscovered new flavors and textures and, moreover, Carlo Alberto, together with our Luca Magagnotti, showed how it is possible to make even the poorest cuts greedy. All this during the “Guide to the cheap steak” course!
A recipe that has enthralled the students during the various basic courses, and which certainly has been redone at home !, is the “Fuso di pollo con sorpresa”, our ogm-free version, filled with bacon, apples and spinach.
During the basic cooking course in a single work station you learn how to properly bone the melt to fill it and make it a delicious dish!
Here is Luca Magagnotti’s recipe
