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.

I was very, very pleased with our experience with Chef Valerie and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. She shared some tips that I’m sure we will use over and over again. She is very knowledgeable and gracious. We would surely take another class of hers when time permits.

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.
