Global Cuisine and World Cinema, Sunday August 28th
This month our global tour of the senses stops off in ITALY with a gourmet pizza making class. Learn the ropes of quick and no-fuss dough making for getting the mythical light, thin and crispy crust you look for at the best pizzerias. You’ll have an assortment of topping options that take you from an authentic Margherita with fresh basil, tomatoes and cheese to fusion creations made from fresh, seasonal, local ingredients.
Screenings are open to those who don’t wish to participate in the class (fees and starting times above), but registration on The Hutong’s website is necessary as seating is limited.
Dir: Giuseppe Tornatore, 1988, 123 min
At times romance, at times comedy, all the while sublime, Cinema Paradiso is one of the great films about love for cinema. Shot in post-WWII Italy, in a small Sicilian village, a young boy comes of age at the local movie theatre, where he and other locals go to escape the post-war realities of Italy. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, and with a beautiful soundtrack by the legendary Ennio Morricone, this classic is a treat for any and all movie lovers.
Price for cooking class + screening: 240 RMB, 200 for members.
Ticket for screening: 35 RMB.
