Prepare a satisfying meal for your whole family in the tradition of authentic Italian cooking.

The heart of Italy beats proudly in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Andrea. Explore the rich traditions of Italian cooking and learn how to customize your recipes to please the most discerning diners.

You'll start with a refreshing caprese salad topped with mozzarella and bright Campari tomatoes before preparing chicken marsala peppered with shallots, mushrooms and garlic. For your pasta, create farfalle with shallots and spinach robed in a creamy Parmesan sauce. And for dessert, whip up smooth panna cotta with a tangy coulis made from fresh berries.

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

Chef Andrea was super nice, and really made us feel at home in her home. Excellent instruction and really allowed us to customize our meals to our tastes. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs help in the kitchen. :D

Chef Andrea was so fun to work with and she was a great instructor. She clearly has a lot of experience teaching cooking classes. She explains techniques and choices in ways that make them feel simple and I definitely learned quite a few tricks that I will be incorporating into my cooking in the future. I highly recommend Chef Andrea for anyone in the DC area!
