Masterclass with Aldo Ortado


Join us for a masterclass with Aldo Ortado. Growing up in the Italian province of Bacoli, Naples, Aldo says sharing food was the key to his childhood. He did not grow up with fancy food, it was all about fresh ingredients and comfort dining. It is that skill set mentored by his beloved nonna, which saw him become a hugely popular contestant on MasterChef Australia 2018 season 10.


In an intimate setting Aldo will cook three delicious Italian dishes: 


- Pesto bruschetta with mortadella, ricotta and pistachio
- Casarecce alla Norma 
- Dolce Pan Di Stelle


Wednesday 7th November, 6:00 - 9:00pm.
