Snapshots from a Baci and Perugina session at La Scuola di Eataly, the in-house cooking school at Eataly. The school offers both sweet and savory sessions and this one was hosted by Francine Segan…and endless bottles of prosecco.
We started off with a chocolate tasting…
…and then made our own Baci!
The center is made of whipped, ground hazelnut and gianduia paste. It’s topped with a whole toasted hazelnut, and dipped in 51% chocolate.
My favorite part (aside from eating it), is the “love note” that comes tucked in with the chocolate. The note I received last week? The only way to get something is to stop waiting for it. Ahh! So, so true.
Next, a chocolate-fruit salad with chopped dried fruits, nuts, Baci, crushed amaretti cookies, minced candied orange peels, fresh strawberries, apples, and pears. All the dry ingredients were mixed with fresh squeezed orange juice, limoncello…and topped with a big dollop of mascarpone.
And then we had this crazy molten lava cake. It was easy to get the “molten” part because we just tucked a Baci in the center before baking :)
