Here in Starfishland, food and tea is just as important as making great websites. If we can combine both of these things, that’s an epic win. So far, we’ve made an online tea store for The Seventh Duchess, the Tutti Frutti Australia site, and have plenty more digital deliciousness currently in the works.
It all started with Nico Moretti from Urban Provider, who runs very popular “dinner party cooking classes” in Perth and small group cooking tours to exotic international destinations. We designed and built Nico’s original website many years ago, and it’s still going strong!
Nico was kind enough to squeeze Jane and I into his ‘Tapas Passion’ cooking class at his studio in Leederville, which is less like a workshop and more like watching a live action cooking show—and you get to eat the food. It’s pretty easy to see why the classes are booked out well in advance…
Nico has just finished off his new cookbook Delicious Journeys, which also includes Thermomix methods—you can order it here. (Warning: images on this page may induce hunger.)
Ok, on to the food!
First up was Spanish Potato Fritatta, Paprika & Garlic Chicken with White Wine, Garlic Prawns with Meredith Dairy goats cheese and olives. This was followed by a Chicken & Chorizo Paella, Pear & Rocket Salad, and ended with a wonderfully sticky Caramel Banana Tart. The surprise ingredient here was fresh rosemary, which actually works amazingly well combined with the sweetness of the other ingredients.
Nico also supplies the recipes for all the dishes he demonstrates, so you can go home and make them straight away. We had a great time, and would definitely recommend Nico’s classes to any fellow foodies!
