PASSED: Cook Frico and Polenta With MasterChef

This is the most typical food combination of my home region of Friuli Venezia Giulia

What you'll learn

Frico is comfort food. It's a dish made with cheese, onions and potatoes. We will serve it with a Parmigiano polenta. I don't love frico only because I grew up eating it, but also because I made it in the semi-final of Masterchef and it helped me to get a place in the Finale.

    This was my second cooking experience with Luca. Not only is Luca an amazing Chef, but he is an amazing person as well. He keeps everyone engaged with his stories and demonstrations and he truly enjoys sharing his knowledge and love for cooking. I highly recommend his classes. Learning from Master Chef Luca is an experience like no other. His classes are enjoyable and entertaining, not to mention we learn how to make delicious recipes. I can't wait for the next one.
