Italian coastal fare comes to life in this cooking class with Chef Paco.

Learn how to craft rustic Italian favorites under the guidance of Chef Paco. Savor the flavors of farm-fresh ingredients and watch as the flames come alive atop a homemade linguine with vodka sauce.

First, learn how to prepare a polenta cake garnished with tomato ragu and fresh herbs. Next, craft handmade linguine with sautéed shrimp in a creamy tomato vodka sauce. You have the option to substitute the shrimp for fresh Italian sausage or make it vegan altogether. Wrap up the meal with pears luxuriously poached in red wine.

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

Chef Paco and his assistant, Nella, provided our family with a fabulous dining experience. The food was delightful and delicious and Chef was able to adapt to our rental house kitchen as if it were his own. The whole experience was a great success. Highly recommended!
