  • The recipes are divided as they are traditionally in Italy: antipasti (starters), primi (first courses), secondi (second courses), piatti unici (main courses) and dolci (desserts).

    Antipasti are small dishes which should stimulate the appetite. Primi are pasta or rice dishes that precede secondi. Secondi are dishes based on meat or fish (in this course they are all replaced with vegan variations). Piatti unici are dishes served as a main course and are not usually preceded by a primo or secondo. Finally, dolci are the desserts.

    In this course, each dish will be plated using different plating techniques. With an understanding of the food presentation formulas that works, you will be able to create beautifully – presented dishes.
