Cooking Class - Vegan Italian Specialties

Chef Francesco will teach you how to impress family and friends with vegan Italian specialties.

Hailing from Italy, Chef Francesco knows exactly how vegan and raw food are naturally immersed in the food culture and shows you how to replicate their delicious and nutritious simplicity.

In this hands-on class, you will learn how to make three Italian specialties that you just won’t be able to wait to share with your family and friends. Begin with a raw zucchini spaghetti salad with a piquant pesto. Then, choose between Tunisian couscous or quinoa that will explode with flavor, and learn how to meld Sicilian flavors to craft a vegan caponata.

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

What a wonderful night! My daughter and I had such a great experience learning and cooking with Chef Francesco. He is a delightful host and has such a lovely home. The food and drinks were fabulous. The hosts adorable. I would recommend this to friends, girls night out, couples, parents visiting in town, or other small groups looking for an evening of hands on, delicious fun!

This was a fantastic night. The cooking class was a birthday gift for a friend who is interested in adventuring into vegan cuisine. The dishes served were delicious and taught to be easily recreated back in our own kitchen. Chef Francesco and Adisa were warm, welcoming, and full of knowledge. I would highly recommend booking an event with Chef Francesco/Adisa.

I surprised my fiance with the italian vegan cooking class hosted by the AMAZING Chef Francesco! The class took place in a cute craftsman style house in the heart of Golden Hill. Chef Francesco is not only a talented cook but such a fun host as well. I love what he had to share about shopping local produce and his take on cooking. He's truly passionate about what he does, from the taste to the presentation-- everything about the evening was absolute perfection! I definitely recommend this experience as a date, family, company team building, etc. You must give this a try! We will be back!
