Lesson 2 – Finding love in Sicily: Trovare l’amore in Sicilia

MenuThank you to everyone that helped make the February 2009 “The Supper of Lamb” such a fun event. This month’s event was titled “Finding Love in Sicily” to celebrate Valentine’s Day and other Becci family associations with that seductive island of Sicily.

We started with a Seafood Antipasti that was marinated overnight. Attendees learned how to roll beef, remove pits from olives, slice fennel thinly, clean and slice blood oranges and not be afraid of artichokes. People who believed they would never like nor let alone eat sardines, did. And we explained how to correctly cook pasta which received the nodding approval of the resident Italian in the room. We finished with fresh baked almond cookies that were dipped in everything including the vast amount of wine consumed all topped off by some Limoncello.

The members of All Saints’ Beverly Hills really know how to cook!! We look forward to the next event in March.
