Kogarah is a suburb about 20 minutes from the centre of Sydney. There is not much of note here unless you are interested in Italian food and Charcuterie. Pinos Dolce Vita Fine Foods has been here for the last 30 years, and if you have not yet paid a visit….. it’s time!
I know there are a lot of keen cooks in Sydney who would just love to get their hands on some sausages given half the chance. This is your chance .
Pino is considered to be the Godfather of Sydney’s Italian Charcuterie heritage. His love of food and family has finally come full circle with the long held dream of opening a relaxed family style restaurant, and now, the Dolce Vita Cooking School. Daughter Carla, is his resident Chef , sons Fabian and Marco run the shop . Wife Pia charms all with her sweet nature, while paddling furiously under water to help make it all happen.
- Have you always wanted to know how to make sausages?
- Would you like to learn the secrets of Charcuterie making the Italian way . Make Cappocolo and Prosciutto.
- Learn the secrets of butchery and how to cook meat to perfection.
- Buy beautiful Italian products such as pasta, truffled flour and sugo
I know this all sounds like a bit of an advertisment for them…….. and in a way it is.
They have had trouble getting the website program up and running and these classes are just too good to be missed, so I have volunteered to yell for them!
