Learn how to make fresh, handmade pasta for a traditional Italian-American meal with Chef Alex.

Begin with a bright Caesar salad with savory white anchovies and homemade croutons. Next, prepare a hearty chicken or eggplant Parmesan with tangy, homemade tomato sauce and your own handcrafted spaghetti. For dessert, enjoy a light and airy chocolate mousse with seasonal fruit and a touch of fresh mint.

Chef Alex’s Advanced Pasta class was great! My boyfriend and I had a great time cooking with him - he is super personable & extremely knowledgeable with cooking tips & tricks. He brought everything we needed to make the recipes and did some great prep before hand to make sure class ran smoothly & on time. We would highly recommend his class to anyone interested! All of the dishes were SO DELICIOUS! Overall, great experience!!

This experience was fantastic! Alex is an awesome Chef and Teacher and I would highly recommend his class to anyone interested! He brought everything we needed which made the whole process seamless. He is well informed about the techniques and the tips on when we try and make the same dishes on our own. The dishes were delicious and all in all we had a wonderful time! Will definitely be reaching back out to Alex in the future!
