Cooking Class - Risotto Demystified

Join Chef Daniel for a vegetarian feast inspired by the bounty of a Mediterranean harvest.

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Daniel will teach you how to make classic Italian dishes that highlight fresh, seasonal produce. Practice time-honored techniques while creating this meal inspired by the flavors of Italy.

Begin with a vegetarian antipasto platter featuring ricotta and pesto crostini, plus Lima beans with gremolata — based on Chef Daniel's childhood memories in Argentina. For the main dish, learn the basic steps to building a creamy truffle risotto with mushrooms and seasonal vegetables, which you'll pair with a Mediterranean salad bursting with fresh ingredients. Finish the meal with an Italian almond tart prepared in advance by Chef Daniel.

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