Cooking Class - Authentic Italian Risotto

Learn how to make an authentic Italian risotto with the perfect creamy and luxurious texture.

During this interactive cooking class, Chef Burcu will teach you the right techniques to achieve the velvety consistency and mouth-watering flavor of risotto along with other Italian classics.

You'll start by preparing a simple green salad made with crunchy nuts and fresh fruit. Then, turn your focus to cooking an exquisite risotto made with a blend of shiitake, oyster and cremini mushrooms, and sauté asparagus with garlic and top with Parmesan cream. For dessert, you'll make a delightful green apple sorbet with a tasty ginger crumble.

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

Wow what an incredible meal! We have leftovers to enjoy today too. As the other reviews said best baklava ever, home made and fresh fresh fresh. The food and service was impeccable. This wonderful lady is going places and I can't wait to see what she does in the future. We'll definitely be trying out her classes, which is not something I was interested in before.
