About The Event

 Italy is comprised of 20 regions, each producing its own culinary treasures with dishes that

sometimes taste as different as you’d find between countries.

In this class, we’ll take a tour of Tuscany to discover a typical first course of the Region: the

Gnudi.

The name already says it all: instead of creating the usual ravioli with pasta that wraps around a

filling, the dough is left as-is: in other words, they’re left gnudi – meaning nude or naked in

Tuscan dialect.

Join the virtual class with Rudy Fanetti-Durán, chef of C’era Una Volta, an Italian restaurant

located in Alameda (CA). You will learn how to make this particular dish and discover many

other culinary secrets of Tuscany.

Rudy was born in Livorno, Italy in the region of Tuscany and became an “American” in 2000.  He

arrived having completed chef’s training in Italy and had worked many years on Cruise-ships and

as private chef on private yachts.

His philosophy is shaped by war-torn post World War II Italy as much as these work

experiences. “Though our town had been destroyed, we were determined to laugh, love and

live well with what little we had.  I learned to take pleasure in the sensation of being alive, and

my appreciation for taste rose above all else.”

Rudy’s personality as a chef may be simply summed up on this premise he lives by: Food is

more than just fuel that feeds our bodies – it is the universal and indispensable means of

conveying our traditions and shared community.  Food with tradition and with “soul” is the

central expression of special occasions in cultures around the world.  In my philosophy, food

maintains our bodies – “taste sustains life.”
