CIRA COOKING SCHOOL ANNANDALE - WINTER PROGRAM - JUNE TO AUGUST, 2010
The Council of Italian Restaurants in Australia (CIRA), a collection of Sydney's best known Italian chefs including Armando Percuoco, Darren Simpson, Mario Percuoco, Lucio Galletto, Nino Zoccali, Gabriele Taddeucci, John Lanzafàme, Adriano Zumbo and Danny Russo; are heating up the CIRA Kitchen this winter.
The Italian primos will present a sizzling calendar of classes throughout June, July and August at the CIRA Cooking School, in Casa Barilla's world-class cooking facility - 4 Annandale Street, Annandale.
Based on much-loved regional Italian cuisine, the new classes will begin 12 June, showcasing the favourite dishes and authentic cooking methods of Australia's great Italian chefs. From heart warming 'Neapolitan Classics' by Mario Percuoco, 'Winter in the Ligurian Hills' by Lucio Galletto– Lucios; to 'Bambini in Cucina' (kids in the kitchen); menus are geared for home cooks and food aficionados alike.
CIRA President Lucio Galletto is excited about this year's winter specials. "The varied nature of this year's classes means that there is something for everyone; from the amateur foodie to the most critical connoisseur. We are happy to be passing on our knowledge and sharing our passion with the Australian public so they can appreciate the intricacy and beauty of Italian cuisine".
CIRA is committed to educating Australians about the huge variety of Italian cuisine on offer in many of Sydney's great Italian restaurants. More than cappuccino, pizza and pasta; regional Italian cuisine is so varied, and so exciting to learn about. And what better way than by joining classes hosted by some of the best practicing Italian-Australians chefs - who really know how to showcase their region," he says.
The School operates from Annandale's Casa Barilla culinary centre. It is a pleasure to cook in an ultra-modern, purpose built, SMEG kitchen; with luxurious hands-on cooking stations; sleek video viewing screen; and sexy Italian stone interiors.
The full CIRA winter timetable can be viewed online at www.cira.com.au; and booked by phoning Dani at CIRA on 0405 286 067. An information pack can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Corporate classes - ideal for team bonding, can also be arranged.

The Council of Italian Restaurants in Australia (CIRA) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2004 by twelve leading Italian-Australian restaurateurs for cultural and educational purposes; and to promote the values of Italian food in Australia.
