Cooking Class - Basics of Molecular Italian Gastronomy

Experiment with a unique method that brings modern culinary magic to a traditional Italian spread.

Italian cuisine gets a scientific twist in this intriguing hands-on cooking class with Chef Rahul. He'll demonstrate the secrets to molecular gastronomy while showing you how to assemble a traditional Italian dinner with distinctive flair.

Get your lesson underway with a classic Caprese salad using fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes, then create butternut pasta from scratch, topped with homemade mole sauce and molecular caviar. Prepare osso buco for your entrée using vegetable ash and flavored with microscopic elements. And for dessert, assemble an authentic tiramisu to end class on a sweet note.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Rahul was an absolute pleasure to have come into our house and cook an amazing delicious 4 course meal. He was very friendly and enjoyed showing us tips and techniques while cooking unique and great tasting food. I would have him back anytime

Rahul was fantastic. Took 3 hours from start to finish, delicious food (special shoutout to the Mole sauce he cooked). Highly recommend.

Our experience with Chef Rahul had its ups and downs. To start with our communication throughout the process was rocky as he got some dates confused, moved our initial time, and was going to initially cancel the class. The class did go through though and once he got to our place he cooked us a great 4 course meal. We had lots of fun watching him cook, although we wished he asked us some more questions and got us involved in the dinner. Unfortunately, the end of the night left much to be desired. After finishing cooking, Rahul immediately booked a cab home and did not help at all with clean up after using well over 20 dishes. He also left behind various ingredients of his such as olives, flour, and sugar for us to clean up. Instead of helping us after the dinner was complete, he sat at our dining room table on his phone instead of helping us even slightly with the clean up. It took us over 45 minutes to clean up everything after he left which soured the date/cooking class for us. We would not expect him to clean up everything, but would have appreciated a bit more initiative and service at the end of the night, especially after giving a tip. I've chosen to give three stars as the food and menu was great, but the all around service of the experience left much to be desired at the end of the night.
