How often have you eaten out at an Italian restaurant and wished you could re-create those same fantastic meals at home? Most people have had this experience. This course will teach you just that--how to cook great Italian appetizers, entrées and desserts in your own kitchen. With Cooking Italian 101 you will learn the basic techniques, but you will also learn how to prepare some of the most popular and delicious recipes you enjoy when eating out. Dishes like mozzarella sticks, pasta fagiole, clams oreganata, chicken marsala, shrimp scampi, and ricotta cheesecake are easy to make at home, once you know how. In addition to teaching you how to properly prepare some of your favorite Italian recipes, we will also unveil those Italian cooking "mysteries" that baffle most people, like what "al dente" means, why there are so many different pasta shapes, why Italians eat their salad with their meal and exactly what Grappa is.

Since this is a 101 course, the recipes are intentionally uncomplicated. The simplest preparation method has been presented for the benefit of the novice home chef. As you become more adept, you can try more difficult approaches to these recipes. Don't be fooled by the simplicity however, while it is a beginner's course, it has a lot to recommend it to a more accomplished cook as well.

The goal of Italian Cooking 101 is to teach you how to prepare delicious, economical Italian meals at home, with confidence. To get the most out of the course you should cook along with the recipes as often as you can. It is much easier to learn by doing. Don't fret if the meal you've prepared along with the lesson isn't perfect the first time around. As you learn new techniques and experiment with ingredients, your cooking will get better and even more delicious with time. You will soon discover that your Italian food tastes just as good as your favorite restaurant's, minus the extra expense of eating out! Starts August 19th and ends November 25, 2014.
