The Cookbook Club: Francisco MontiñoFebruary 16, 2018
Saturdays 5/12 from 10:30am to 1:30pm
New School of Cooking Pasadena
Each month we will discuss a significant cookbook and prepare a group meal adapted from its recipes. Here’s what’s on the menu this month:
Arte de cozina, pasteleria, vizcocheria y conserveria (Art of Cooking, Pastry, Savory Pastry and Preserves) by Francisco Martínez Montiño, 1611
The most influential cookbook of early 17th century Spain, it gives us access into what was prepared in royal kitchens of what was then one of the most powerful countries in the world. Montiño includes an early European recipe for potatoes, which he calls testicles of the earth. A fascinating document, it was reprinted for more than 200 years.
Classes meet at New School of Cooking’s Pasadena campus.
525 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena 91101
Though reading the book prior to each class date is not necessary, it is available in Spanish here.
