Be transported to another world entirely as you learn authentic risotto from an Italian native.

In this hands-on class, Chef Luana teaches you the art and techniques of authentic risotto preparation by providing an introduction to the methodology behind risotto. Once you understand proper procedure, you can make many different variations from the basic concept.

After enjoying an appetizer of creamy, buttery fresh burrata, you can look forward to exploring a variety of velvety risottos, including mushroom and black truffle, as well as shrimp and zucchini. For dessert, elegant, yet rustic mini Italian hand pies, known as "crostatine," filled with simple and bright homemade preserves.

Chef Luana was a fantastic host. She was so warm and welcoming. We had the best time learning from her and hearing all of her great stories. All of the food was amazing, even though the appetizer and dessert were different than what was on the menu we booked. We were able to overlook that because she was so great. I’m sure we’ll be back for another class soon.

Chef Luana introduced us to the wonderful world of Italy. She was very good at giving tips and instruction on secrets to Italian cooking. The mushroom risotto is underrated and a great dish to learn! We meticulously went through all the steps to cook it al dente and I loved her story behind her opening of her restaurant in Italy. She is a very knowledgable chef that I can see myself continuing to learn from!
