Cooking Class - Simply Italian

Practice the art of handmade pasta and classic Italian cooking with Chef Eric.

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Eric focuses on the basics of Italian cooking using simple ingredients and time-honored techniques. He will teach you how to make fresh pasta dough, savory side dishes and authentic sauces.

Begin by making savory antipasti skewers featuring tomatoes, artichokes, pepperoncini, olives and more. Then, prepare your fresh pasta, followed by a bold bolognese sauce (or vegetarian substitute) and a rich pesto sauce. For dessert, learn to make zabaglione, a decadent Italian custard, and pair it with seasonal fruit and amaretti cookies.

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

Amazing class! It was a small group and very hands on, so we got to do everything ourselves once Eric showed us the technique. Eric was very accommodating of my vegetarian dietary restriction and we were able to learn lot in a short period of time, from several pasta shapes to two sauces and a dessert. He also showed us some basic knife skills and other kitchen hacks. All in all, everything we learnt was super fun yet totally replicable at home. Highly recommend!!
