Cooking Class - Homemade Italian Dinner

Embark on a culinary journey to Italy during this interactive culinary experience with Chef Drea.

In this hands-on class with Chef Drea, you will learn how to prepare a four-course Italian dinner menu completely from scratch using fresh, high-quality ingredients and time-honored Italian culinary techniques.

Some of the recipes and dishes you can look forward to adding to your culinary repertoire include a classic bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and basil, a homemade citrus vinaigrette dressing for your Caesar salad, pillowy homemade gnocchi glistening with a deeply flavorful sage butter, and a handcrafted tiramisu full of rich coffee flavor and a dreamy, light mascarpone and zabaglione filling.

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

I cannot say enough about our experience making sushi with Chef Drea. She was so warm, inviting and definitely knew her stuff! Her food prep was immaculate, her home was magical, and the food was to die for. There was more than enough for seconds and even thirds! By the end of the night my sister and I felt like we had gone to a friends house for a dinner party - it was that much fun. 100% worth the time and money!!!

Chef Drea was absolutely amazing! She made us feel so warm and really taught us what cooking is all about—love! She made us feel very comfortable and shared her skills, well distributed in a class full of 5. Definitely felt the 1:1 attention and she was also such a great host. Highly recommend her and her knowledge of cuisine (we took the sushi class) for anyone who is just beginning or even has a good level of experience!
