Couples Cooking Class - Classic Italian Cooking for 2

Make date night special and learn to prepare a rustic Italian feast with Chef Ben.

With twelve years of culinary experience in Paris, Spain, New York and Seattle, Chef Ben’s expertise reaches far and wide. In this class you and your date will learn professional techniques and unforgettable recipes you can recreate in your own kitchen.

The first course of the evening will be fresh marinated sardines topped with lemon, garden herbs, and a drizzle of chili oil for some heat. Next, you will learn the art of making your own handmade ravioli stuffed with wild mushrooms and paired with wilted radicchio and balsamic vinegar for acidity. You’ll then learn how to cook a mouthwatering braised pork shank with a fresh parsley gremolata and farro. The fourth course of the evening will be an assortment of seasonal fruits topped in a homemade zabaglione sauce, and you’ll close out the night with anise cookies and a sambuca--just like they do in Italy.

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

Ben was excellent! The menu was delicious and we enjoyed the things he chose for us. In addition to the amazing meal, Ben was incredibly knowledgable, engaging, and easy to talk to. He was kind enough to let us take over his house and we felt very welcome. I would recommend Chef Ben to anyone who wants a fun, enjoyable experience for French cuisine or anything else he's preparing in the future.

Chef Ben is a food historian - something I did not know even existed - and as such is full of interesting stories and bits of information. Having spent time in New Orleans, his cuisine has a Southern drawl and an authentic flavor of the South. From crispy fried chicken (a recipe he spent 6 years developing) to juicy plum clafoutis it was all delicious and we left inspired to go and cook!

I have been cooking professionally for over twelve years. During that time, I have cooked at restaurants in Seattle, New York City, Paris, and Spain. I am also a trained sommelier and love pairing wine and cocktails with my food. I like to think of my cooking as influenced by travels throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa and a vehicle to understand diverse cultures and peoples.
