Cooking Class - Authentic Italian Comfort Cuisine

Discover a handful of recipes Chef Maria collected and learned throughout her year in Italy.

In this hands-on class with Chef Maria, you'll learn how to prepare an impressive six-course Italian comfort food menu and inadvertently come to know the vast difference between authentic Italian and American-Italian cuisine.

Chef Maria will begin by teaching on the art of bread making as you learn an easy dough recipe for a soft roll you will further adorn with fresh rosemary, provolone, and pancetta. Some of the other recipes you can look forward to making include stuffed eggplant, ricotta dumplings in broth, and an unbelievable hazelnut pasta dish.

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

Chef Maria created a wonderful cooking and learning culinary experience for us! Her confidence and warmth immediately puts you at ease and her love for her craft and food shows in everything she does! She shared several great cooking tips (she's skilled in multiple genres and techniques from baking to knife skills) and answered all our questions along the way. And of course, the food was absolutely delicious!
