Hearty food to share

28 Apr, 2021

Cannelloni is on the menu at Friday's pop-up cafe at Baranduda Community Centre.

Chef Leti Gavioli will prepare the hearty Italian dish the way she was taught.

Leti will do all the food preparation and cooking, just gather a group of friends and family to come and enjoy the hospitality from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Enjoy chatting to other locals and bring your own drinks and side plates to share with your family to accompany the main meal.

Cost is $15 adults, $10 children.

Bookings are essential, phone Baranduda Community Centre on (02) 6020 8643.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 any BYO food is to be shared only with your family group.

Below Leti shared with us one of her favourite recipes - Ricotta and Cocoa Balls - which are great for the school or work lunchbox.

Ricotta and Cocoa Balls

Ingredients for four people:

- 200g ricotta

- 150g shredded coconut

- 100g caster sugar

- 100g cocoa powder

- Dash of rum essence



Beat ricotta until smooth then add cocoa, sugar, rum and 80g of coconut.

Let the mixture rest for one hour in the fridge.

Make little balls and roll them into the remaining coconut.

An alternative is grated nuts, or sprinkles.

Put back in the fridge for at least two hours before eating.
