Cooking Class - An Italian Cuisine Education

Join Chef Mario as he indicates the importance of utilizing Italian flavors, techniques, and traditions.

In this hands-on class, Chef Mario will guide you as you work your way through creating an inventive four-course Italian menu.

A classic spinach salad with feta and artichoke kicks off the evening and prepares the way for courses of luscious garlicky mashed potatoes and an epic balsamic flank steak with rosemary and enormous flavor. No Italian feast would be complete without pasta, so Chef Mario teaches you how to infuse an iconic vodka sauce into linguine. End with a divine, yet refreshing dessert of mascarpone and seasonal fruit gelato.

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

I had a great time with Chef Mario! His home was very welcoming and perfect for a date night. He explained all of his cooking techniques in a way that anyone could understand. My favorite dish was the Pork Tenderloin with the curried sweet potato puree and yogurt sauce!
