Four Course Lunch: First Wednesday in Siena

So, every Wednesday I get to participate in the cooking class.
We cook a 4 course meal and then eat it.
This week was a Tuscany theme.
We had foccaccia bread topped with melted cheese
(which I forgot to take a picture of.)
Then we had homemade ravioli,
stuffed with spinach and ricotta,
with two kinds of sauce: tomato and butter/sage.
Making ravioli was time consuming but fun
though I don't recommend it without a pasta machine.

Second course was veal scaloppine,
very thin slices of veal floured and fried
and topped with a luscious tomato sauce,
served on the side with peas and bacon:

and dessert was panna cotta,
a 'cooked milk' with vanilla and citrus zest,
thickened with gelatin and set in the fridge.
Ours didn't set up properly so we couldn't unmold it
on the plate and top it with the orange sauce,
so we just had it in the cups.
It was still good!
