Giancarlo Ferrara (above) is an internationally recognized Italian chef who opened his wildly popular Amalfi Ristorante Italiano & Bar in Houston back in 2014.
He’s one of the city’s leading pastamakers and focuses on the cuisine of southern Italy.
When Houston Chronicle restaurant critic Alison Cook first reviewed the restaurant the following year, she declared: “With Amalfi, an Italian star is born.”
We are thrilled to share the news that Giancarlo will be leading a Master Class on authentic Italian foods and foodways in Bentonville, Arkansas on Friday, November 15. Details follow below.
The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Texas, in collaboration with VisitBentonville and Fort Worth Sister Cities, is proud to present this year’s Italian Gourmet Foods Master Classes.
These educational events offer chefs, culinary students, and food and wine lovers the opportunity to learn more about authentic Italian products and foodways. Presenters will focus on authenticity, traceability, food and wine pairings, and how to use traditional Italian food products in the kitchen.
Featured products include: Prosciutto di Parma, Pecorino Toscano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, & classic Friuli Venezia-Giulia Products.
