Cooking Class - Tuscan Grill

The grilled flavors from Central Italy are calling your name

Chef Nick gives you a world class lesson on a sophisticated, grilled Italian feast. In this class you will learn how to prepare an appetizer, salad, main course, and dessert with inspiration from the Italian region of Tuscany, and everything will be done on the grill!

Start off with grilled portobello crostino as Chef Nick shows you how grilling on cherry wood can bring out immense flavor. Next, Chef Nick teaches you how to prepare a grilled antipasto. Grill some bell peppers, zucchini, and more that you will add to a bed of romaine lettuce with shaved provolone cheese. Your main course consists of Bistecca fiorentina. Chef Nick will guide you in grilling a three pound porterhouse steak to absolute perfection over 500 degree hot cherry wood ambers. Add some virgin olive oil, fresh pepper, lemon wedges and arugula to the already incredibly mouthwatering flavor. The class ends on a sweet note with a grilled dessert: Grilled pears with coffee sauce will be the sweet finale to a grilled and flavorsome night in Tuscany.

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

Chef Nick was absolutely amazing! From the moment he came into the door he fit right in with my partner and I. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and professional, and we couldn’t recommend him enough. The food was spectacular and he turned a steak non-believer into a steak lover. If you’re seeking to have a lovely date night we would highly recommend chef Nick!

I've rediscovered french toast after eating Chef Nicholas' "tipsy" interpretation of this popular classic--very decadent! A chef who knows his food and has no problem sharing his knowledge to you as he shows you how to break apart roasted duck, make a roulade using fish, or the basic techniques of French cuisine.
