CUCINA DELLA TERRA Cucina Della Terra is located in a pastoral area of Umbria near Lake Trasimeno. What’s Cooking You will prepare authentic Italian regional cuisine using cooking techniques that are indigenous to Italian culture. In addition, the school has hand-picked restaurants and trattorias that exemplify updated classics along with rustic Italian cooking. The Chef is also organizing a series of wine tastings, market trips, olive oil tastings and a truffle hunt that will expose you to regional specialties. Who Gerri Sarnataro is a lover of all things Italian. She grew up in an Italian-American home in Queens where her grandfather nurtured a fig tree in the backyard, her grand-
mother made fresh ricotta and raviolis, and Sunday dinner for twelve began at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. With a desire to recreate and invite others to her family table, she opened Cucina della Terra, a cooking school in an idyllic area of Italy where the culture of food could encompass a wider circle. Gerri has worked in several New York City restaurants including Lavin’s, Woods, and the three-star rated Aureole. She was also Chef/ Owner of a catering business and retail shop, serving New York City clients in the fashion industry and business world. In 1996, she found herself managing the second location of Peter Kumps’ New York Cooking School. Gerri is now a Chef/Instructor at what has been renamed The Institute of Culinary Education.
