This soiree guided by the entertaining Italian Chef Marty will be one for the books!

It's five o'clock somewhere. In this case—in Little Italy.

Chef Marty begins this class with a brief history of the Italian immigrants' migration to San Diego. Then, you will focus on Italian food, and make a delicious bruschetta while learning about the origins and history of this appetizer. Next, is a savory pizza Margherita, followed by the grand finale — Italian gelato, made fresh daily!

My son and I had a truly exceptional experience with Chef Marty. Chef Marty openly and generously shared her cherished Tuscan grandmother's recipes. It was wonderful to be able to take a break from our fast-paced and quick-food lives and step into a slower-paced experience where whole food, conversation, and appreciating the culinary experience were the priority. The meal we made was outstanding, better than we've had in even in the finest Italian restaurants. This cooking class was more than just a typical "class". It was an experience that we will remember and appreciate for years to come.

Really fun cooking and learning experience! Not only do you get to cook and eat really good food but you get to learn about cooking techniques, fresh ingredients, history, and unique tools! Would definitely love to take another class

Chef Marty created a magical Italian afternoon for us! The hands on experience rolling out the pasta, making the tiramisu, and chopping up the fresh ingredients for bruschetta was so much fun! Our time was infused with helpful tips from her professional cooking knowledge and also her experiences living and cooking in Italy, creating a memorable experience. Lots of laughter and learning! Highly recommend!

The cuisine of Tuscany has its roots deep in the countryside where the ingredients are plentiful and are brought to market fresh daily. The recipes are simple and have survived the test of time. We put our history of beautiful skin, creative minds and wellness on the table, and this history is still alive today! I was trained by my grandmothers in Tuscany, and I can teach you to quickly prepare fresh, quality meals that are delicious and nutritious.
