August 28: Chocolate “Salami” & Granita di Caffé Class

Join us for this class on: Saturday, August 28

10:30am PT / 1:30pm ET / 7:30pm Italy

Loaded with chocolate, this dessert is often made by Italian families for kid’s parties or as a treat served with a good coffee. Chocolate salami has a tricky name: it’s not savoury and meaty, it’s just a delicious crunchy dessert!

During this class, I will share with you this easy-to-make recipe, perfect for the summer as it doesn’t require any baking. It’s a great dessert to prepare in advance. Chocolate salami is a combination of two types of chocolate, biscuits and nuts. You can use any kind of nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios) or skip them and use just biscuits. Once your salami is shaped, it can be kept in the freezer for up to one month and you can enjoy a slice everyday. 

I’ll also share my recipe for granita di caffé with whipped cream. It’s the best accompaniment to serve with your salami on hot summer nights. It’s a keeper, I promise!

Key Ingredients

– cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips or bars
plain Digestive biscuits or animal cookies
– sugar
– almonds, pistachios, or other nuts of choice
– instant coffee
– whipped cream

When will I know what ingredients to purchase for the classes?

The full recipe and list of ingredients for each class are already published on each Class page, so you can start to prepare for future classes as soon as you enroll. You will also receive a shopping list by email about one week in advance, with a reminder the day before class.

When is the latest I can enroll in a class?

Enrollment will stay open until the last minute. However, for the best experience, we recommend enrolling at least 24 hours in advance – and even further in advance if you need extra time to shop for ingredients. Additionally, important instructions will be sent out the day before each class.

What if I miss a live cooking class or have to leave early?

Participants will have access to video recordings of any class they purchase. That way you can watch the replay (and cook) whenever is most convenient for you.

How does it work? Do I need a special program to participate in the membership?

Cooking classes will be held on Zoom. This requires a quick and easy download, but you do not need a special Zoom account to participate (we’ll send all the instructions on how to use Zoom if you register for a class)

Class information and video replays will be hosted on this website. You will set up a password to access your class page when you enroll.

Important, class communications will be sent out via email.
