Cooking Club II - Italian Food

This post is long overdue. Cooking Club 2 had their last meeting about 3 weeks ago. Christine was absent, due to a trip to see her sister - as the rest of us fought for counter, and oven, space in Jordana's kitchen. Italian was the theme and it did not disappoint. I was able to try Italian fare that I had never experienced and it was all quite successful.

I couldn't conceptualize this at first, but it turned out better than I thought it would. The salsa was the best part I think.
Jillian added some Gorgonzola for an extra punch.
Jordana - Sogliola in Tre Modi (Roasted Sole Three Ways) from Jamie's Italy
She wasn't able to source Dover Sole so she used Atlantic Sole and it was fantastic; a nice contrast of texture, flavour and colour.
I adore Brussels Sprouts, so this suited me fine. I have never thought to add pecans before and it complimented the nuttiness of the sprouts perfectly.
Suzanne - Cucidati
This wrapped pastries were delicious! They were amazingly sweet and the mix of figs, orange zest and chocolate was something I would not have thought would work so well together.
