Chef Luana shows you how to use food to strengthen your mind and body.

Discover how to boost your health and empower your mind, body and spirit with ingredients that support mental health and wellness. This menu of Italian favorites includes a healthy twist to four dishes that feature tryptophan, zinc, carotenoids, B vitamins and more for a serotonin-boosting experience.

Begin with a mix of mozzarella and pineapple, followed by bruschetta topped with a cannellini bean salad. Then, learn how to make a savory golden risotto with saffron and Parmigiano Reggiano, and a sweet dark chocolate mousse with nuts and berries for dessert.

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

Chef Luana was amazing!!! It was my mom's birthday and she surprised her with a cake in addition to the rest of the food we learned to make. The food was so good, she used fresh Italian ingredients, and her husband gave great service. Such a lovely experience and I will definitely be referring her to my friends.
