Welbeck Street Association next event at La Cucina Caldesi

In January 2011, we are planning for our next event to be Top Left Design’s client La Cucina Caldesi host a cooking course as part of our next Welbeck Street Association event.

Our previous Welbeck Street Association events have been held in restaurants and bars – but this time we wanted to do something a little different!

That’s why we’re going to be networking in style, and inviting you to join us in a cookery class!

The Top Left Design team recently went over to test the facilities out in a fun-filled “Pizza Pizza Pizza” evening with Katie Caldesi.

Cooking With Caldesi

Keren, Tina, Tamlyn, Michael, and Regina popped along to learn how to make authentic Italian pizza – from scratch!

They made pizza and focaccia (flatbread) dough from scratch, preparing a Mediterranean salad, and Pannacotta for desert, while waiting for the dough to rise – a necessary step, and great use of time!

Cooking School

Once the dough was ready, they added tasty toppings to their pizzas, and made twisted breadsticks for some savoury appetisers!
Cooking the pizzas was surprisingly quick, and before too long (the time it took to drink a glass of wine and enjoy the breadsticks), the team was feasting upon the fruits of their labour!

Cooking With Caldesi

The Pannacotta desert was a real treat, and perfectly complimented the main meal – tasting even better being home-made!

Katie Caldesi was an excellent host, and provided not only a detailed tutorial, but also an authentic Italian experience, sprinkling interesting facts into the lesson, along with a dash of humour – great fun was had by all!

So why not come along to our next Welbeck Street Association event, and experience this for yourself? To find out more and register your interest, speak to the Top Left Design team!
