Who is Chicca? What is Chicca's Cooking Club?
Chicca Maione has been teaching traditional Italian recipes for over 20 years in her home kitchen located in Castagneto Carducci - Bolgheri, on the Tuscan Coast. When the pandemic hit, we started Chicca’s Cooking Club. We aim to bring easy and accessible recipes and the joy of cooking into your kitchen, through our online cooking classes live from Tuscany. Soon, we’ll celebrate our second year of online cooking fun with a great community around the world!
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?
Everyone who signs up will have access to the video recording within 24 hours of the live class. 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?
Cooking classes will be held through 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.
Important class communications will be sent out via email.
What ingredients do I need?
The key ingredients for gnocchi are simple: flour (I use '00' (double zero) - the very fine one), butter, and Parmesan cheese. The sauce is made with leeks, peas, pancetta/bacon (optional), and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. A full ingredient list is provided in your confirmation email.
How can I learn more about Chicca's online cooking classes?
We host monthly online classes through Chicca's Cooking Club. You'll hear more about these classes and Club membership at the end of the gnocchi class. In the meantime, you can check out https://cookingintuscany.cc/club.
