Coleg y Cymoedd are first stop on Italian cuisine masterclass tour

Coleg y Cymoedd, leading provider of Professional Cookery courses and two-time winner of the Food Award Wales’ Cookery School of the Year, was first stop on Italian government’s tour to promote Italian cuisine.

At a special event held at its Nantgarw campus last month, a hundred aspiring chefs learned from the experts of Italian deli meats in a special masterclass organised by the ITA London Italian Trade Agency, the ASSICA and the Italian Deli Meats Promotion Institute (IVSI), who are touring the UK to showcase the quality and variety of Italian cured meats.

The masterclass was led by Domenico ‘Mimmo’ Maggi, a renowned expert on Italian cuisine and a member of the Italian Federation of Chefs and supported by Coleg y Cymoedd Hospitality and Catering Lecturer, Massimiliano Vian.

The demonstration focused on the use of different types of Italian cured meats in creative and delicious dishes. Maggi also explained the history, production and certification of these products, and how they reflect the Italian culture and tradition.

Cymoedd learners heard about the sustainability and health benefits of Italian cured meats, which are made from natural ingredients and follow strict quality standards. They discovered how to use these products in a balanced and varied diet, and how to avoid food waste by using every part of the meat. They also had the opportunity to taste the dishes prepared by Maggi, and to ask him questions about his career and experience.

The masterclass was a great success, and the learners and staff of Coleg y Cymoedd expressed their appreciation and enthusiasm for the event. They thanked the organisers and the chef for sharing their knowledge and passion for Italian cured meats, and for giving them a unique and inspiring learning experience.
