Cooking Class - Simple Italian From Scratch

Don’t let the simplicity of these Italian dishes obscure the fact that they're absolutely delicious.

In this hands-on class with Chef Mona, you will learn how to prepare simple Italian recipes from scratch that boast a certain humble rusticity that is deeply satisfying and feeds you in both body and soul.

You will begin by assembling ricotta toast with local honey and truffle oil. Then, you'll learn the secrets behind a simple pasta dough completely from scratch. Then, you will turn your homemade fare into two impressive dishes: ricotta toast with local honey, basil, and truffle oil, and handcrafted tortellini filled with ricotta and tossed in a luxuriously creamy lemon sauce.

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

We had a wonderful time with Chef Mona! The food was tasty and we left feeling like we learned much that we could take and apply back at our house. Thanks Mona!

Chef Mona is an excellent teacher and chef, my wife and i spent a lovely evening with her learning how to cook Peruvian food. Her diverse culinary knowledge and experience made for interesting conversation and a relaxed learning atmosphere. Definitely would revisit.

What a wonderfully fun experience! The ladies and I have been cooking for over 30 years and Chief Mona taught us so much. She was such a delight. We all wanted to take her home with us! The food was delicious and the gravy was to die for.
