Cooking Class - Simple Risotto

Join Chef Valerie for a gluten-free Italian dinner that will wow your senses.

Italian and gluten-free can go hand in hand! Chef Valerie will show you how.

Start off the class with a divine appetizer, prepared using cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and basil placed on skewers. Then it's off to learn all about risotto. Many people shy away from making risotto due to the mystery that surrounds this dish. Get ready to solve that mystery as you whip up a beautiful porcini mushroom and pea risotto! End the night with an enchanting dessert of melt-in your-mouth chocolate panna cotta.

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

Chef Valerie was professional, patient and very kind. We put our session to use by making empanadas the following week for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Thanks for putting this cautious very new cook at ease.

Had a great experience with Chef Valerie. She answered our questions and was encouraging even when our empanadas looked a little sad.

Chef Valerie is excellent. She provides a welcoming environment, beautiful kitchen and awesome playlist of music during her class. She shows patience and makes the learning experience fun. She explains and answers your questions. I took away from this class the details you may miss trying to find on a YouTube video. Overall, my son and I had a great time and will definitely use her services again.
