>Ravioli or Maccheroni (not sure if we'll have time to make ravioli)
>Pollastri con Agresto
>Fritelle di Riso
>The results of the class will be contributing to lunch at the event.
>Does anyone have any thoughts, or comments?
>The thing that immediately sprang to my mind when I sat back and looked at

Have you taken a look at Due Libre B, recently webbed on my site?


15th c. southern Italian. Might have useful recipes.
