Italian tutor Manchester: I Love Italian Cuisine


So there are many reasons (probably more than 10) to learn to speak Italian in Manchester. But the one that most of my students refer to is: Food and Wine. Italian cuisine is simple but so tasty. I often despair at how difficult it is to find a decent Italian Restaurant in Manchester. If you know any new ones please get in touch !!

I often get asked by my students to do a whole Italian lesson based on food and drinks:

A typical meal in Italy consists of:

        • Aperitivo– Appetizer before a large meal
          My absolute favourite is Cinzano from my hometown of Turin – Cin Cin (cheers in Italian)
        • Antipasto – There are hot and cold starters
          My absolute favourite is Bruschetta di pomodoro
        • Primo – The first course (pasta, risotto, gnocchi, polenta or soup)
          My absolute favourite is Ravioli con sugo di arrosto (Ravioli from Piemonte my region)
        • Secondo – The main dish (fish or meat)
          Saltimbocca alla Romana
        • Contorno – Side dish (salad or cooked vegetables)
          Verdure alla griglia
        • Formaggio e frutta – cheese and fruits” can be the first dessert – I don’t eat cheese!!!
        • Dolce – Desert
          For me personally nothing beats Gelato Artigianale
        • Caffè – Coffee
        • Digestivo– Digestives (liquors such as grappa, amaro, limoncello, nocino)Here’s a few photos of my favourite italian dishes and drinks
