International Cooking Class by Chef Jess Rosval
IWA Modena is excited to host a “Cooking to Fight Cancer” online charity events series. Join us and help IWA Modena collect funds for Il Cesto di Ciliege’s big fundraising project 2021: the purchase of a much needed, highly advanced prognostic device for the Policlinico of Modena! This machine, known as Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM), is useful when diagnosing breast cancer and planning related surgical procedures.
International Cooking Class by Chef Jess Rosval: November 15, 2020 at 18:00 on Zoom
(The lesson will take place in Italian and English.)
Participate live at Jess’ online cooking class or download an “on demand” video of the lesson anytime you want. You will receive a list of ingredients and preparation instructions ahead of time, so you can cook along. During the class you will be able to ask questions via the chat function and Jess will answer them as he cooks with us.
Jessica is a Canadian chef working in the restaurant industry since 2001. For the last five years she’s distinguished herself as a chef at Massimo Bottura’s Osteria Francescana as Chef de Parti and head of international events, and most recently as the Head Chef of Casa Maria Luigia. Jessica is also the co-founder and the culinary Director of the Association for the Integration of Women in Modena.
In this class, Jess will go over the basics of professional cooking, to give you the knowledge and confidence to cook creatively and with ease in the kitchen. Some things we will cover will be knife skills, whole fish cleaning, ideas for using all ingredients to reduce food waste and smart use of tools to cut down on the dreaded cleaning time! The menu consists of:
- Sea bass “en papillotte”
- Spiced squash and seeds
- Quick flatbreads
- Yogurt sauce
