We specialize in offering personal and group cooking classes and events – ALL INSTRUCTORS ARE NATIVE ITALIANS- We also organize private culinary, artistic and cultural trips to Italy for small groups.
“Learn, Laugh, Love, Eat Italian!”
Take an Italian cooking class/lesson and learn recipes, techniques and a few Italian words and phrases that will be just what you need to make Italian Gourmet cooking an everyday part of your life. We are very aware of the health benefits of herbs and include them in our recipes to enhance the natural healing properties of GOOD food, which is not only a pleasurable experience, but provides much needed, quality fuel for our bodies. Using herbs and spices expands our taste palette without adding extra calories, and may decrease the amount of salt, fat, and sugars we use without sacrificing flavor.
Cooking classes are perfect for individuals, couples and small groups. Some classes feature an entire menu from appetizer to dessert; others focus on a specific technique or ingredient (e.g. basic cooking skills, bread and pizza workshops, meat recipes, pasta sauce making, risotto workshops, etc.). After the cooking is done, sit down and enjoy the dishes you cooked with your family and friends.
TYPES OF CLASSES OFFERED:
Classes are between two and three and a half hours in length, depending on the kind of class and the menu. During the lesson we will prepare three or four dishes from start to finish. All menus are custom-designed to suit your tastes, skills and kitchen equipment. One-on-one or group lessons and special private culinary trips to Italy are provided.
DEMONSTRATION CLASSES are an intimate, interactive look at cooking. Each class features an entertaining and informative lesson by the instructor plus generous tastings of every dish prepared in class. Take notes as you watch our chef work, and ask questions throughout the process to walk away able to recreate the menu at home.
HANDS-ON CLASSES let you participate in each step of the cooking, so you can master the techniques at home. The instructor will discuss the ins and outs of each recipe, give you valuable tips, and coach you as you work together with other students in small groups to prepare the dishes. You’ll sit down at the end of class to feast upon the fruits of your labor with your friends.
