Recipe for :

Sage and Rosemary Chicken Thighs

Cucina con VistaThis recipe comes from Elena Mattei who runs her own cooking school and restaurant in Italy called Cucina con Vista.

Cucina con Vista was born out of the experience which Elena has gained since 1987 from the management of her restaurant 'La Baraonda' in Florence. Just a few years after beginning the business, she began to find that clients were not only interested in tasting the dishes that were on offer at her restaurant every evening, but also in experimenting in the art of Tuscan cookery at home.

Elena's idea is not only to teach Tuscan cookery but also to give participants the chance to feel Tuscan by integrating the lessons with activities linked to the local life and culture. To find out more have a look at her web site <click here>
