What you'll do
Vittoria and Carmela will welcome you to the Borgia family kitchen, with its enormous farm table and wood oven. They will pour you vino, or perhaps it will be prosecco. They will wrap you in an apron and put you to work. Perhaps you will make gnocchi, with a pesto sauce pounded out of the basil that grows outside the kitchen door. Or you may make parmigiana melanzane, your eggplant brushed ever-so-lightly with crispy flour. You may make torta al testo, the famous umbrian flatbread stuffed with spinach, or proscuitto. Whatever is on the menu that day, it will include the full requirements necessary to a proper Italian sit-down meal: antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolci. And vino of course. After you cook, Vittoria will take you on a tour of the palazzo, including the chapel where members of her family have worshipped for generations, the frescoed ceilings that are the second floor domain of her parents, who's Pitti Palace wedding in 1960 was so storied it merited six pages in Florence's daily newspaper. You will visit the interior game room,the elegant dining room, with its massive oak table, where you will enjoy the feast you just cooked.
Vittoria Iraci Borgia is the daughter of two historic Italian families. Her mother, Caterina de Medici, is one of seven sisters, including Ippolita de Medici, who Vittoria as a child watched making buccatini with pesto di mandorle, a dish with both extraordinary character and a gorgeous simplicity. What Vittoria really learned from her family is how to make olive oil. La Montagnola makes the finest olive oil in Italy, and Vittoria's Minerva oil, from olives grown on the little mountain that hosts the estate, was judged "best in class" at the international olive oil competition in New York.
Vittoria and Carmela will provide everything you need for the class. You will be done by around 2 p.m.
