News from Edinburgh New Town Cookery School

Authentic Italian Christmas

On 30th November 2013 we are very happy to welcome back Mattia Camorani to Edinburgh New Town Cookery School. Mattia is Head Chef at Cucina Restaurant, Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh and In July he held a very successful Italian Kitchen Cookery Course at the cookery school. In November he will be concentrating on Italian seasonal favourites. He will show how to make each of the dishes before everyone goes into the kitchen to cook it for themselves.
