Join Chef Lenny on a guided tour through fare hailing from various regions of Italy.

In this hands-on class with Chef Lenny, you'll learn how to prepare an authentic four-course Italian menu using an array of ingredients and cooking techniques from the Italian regions of Lazio, Liguria, and beyond!

After beginning with Roman-style braised artichokes gently cooked in a fragrant bath of their own juices, you'll head to the Italian Riviera as Chef Lenny teaches you how to prepare a homemade walnut sauce for your spaghettini. You'll also learn how to roast and season a pork loin to perfection and create a "crazy strawberry" dessert.

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

The food was excellent! We really enjoyed our evening. We would have preferred more hands-on and a more instructional format, but Chef Lenny was really good about answering all our questions and even provided some advice on preparing a dish we were serving the next evening.

We were so excited to find Cozymeal when searching for a cooking class in the Tucson area to gift to 4 of our young adult family members for the holidays. From experience, we know that cooking classes are a treat for those with little time to experiment in the kitchen, but who love food. We had booked the cooking class in the weeks before the holidays and the class was to be held January 7th. We chose Chef Lenny’s class based on him having the most positive and glowing reviews on your website. There were several things that were misleading and disappointing about the whole experience. -Although the online booking feature was straightforward, there was no direct communication from Chef Lenny until the day of the event and in this case, I needed to reach out to him. -Right before he arrived, we received a call from our family that Chef Lenny was adding an additional $40 trip fee the day of the event. - All participants started to apron up for the “class” and Chef Lenny acted very surprised and said he didn’t realize they wanted to participate. He told everyone that most people just want him to cook for them and proceeded to provide a private chef experience instead of a cooking class. This was not a cooking class, which is clearly what we paid for and how it was represented. -In summary, with cost of the class, the additional $40 fee our recipients were hit with upon put-out arrival, and the tip that our “students” felt appropriate to provide, we are about $500 all-in for this event that did not include a hands-on teaching component. This is by far the most disappointing cooking class we have ever purchased. What Cozymeal is representing versus what is actually delivered is world’s apart. At this point our family is $500 lighter and still no cooking class. We look forward to hearing from the Cozy meal feedback team on how all of this could have gone so wrong and how this can be remedied.

We had a lovely evening (the three of us), and experience with Chef Lenny. We listened to jazz, prepped and dined together. Meal was delicious and we gained some valuable tips for our future forays in the kitchen. Thank you Lenny!
