Chef Wearing a Mask
Social Distancing Friendly

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.

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

Luana was amazing! I loved that she brought her family tradition to the ambiance of the class. My girlfriend took me to her class for my birthday ! And she couldn’t be sweeter . She put a big sign of 'Happy Birthday' in her living room just for me. Very generous with the food and her knowledge. Definitely an experience I’ll recommend!.

This was our first time doing a cooking class, and it was such an amazing and enjoyable experience! Chef Luana was very warm, welcoming and informative. We had a great time learning how to make authentic risotto while chatting with her and the other people taking the class with us. The end result was absolutely delicious and I'm hoping to bring my sister to one of her other classes. It's a wonderful experience and makes for a great gift! Highly recommend this class, as well as Chef Luana - she's incredible!

This was my first Cozymeal experience so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was fun. I recommend it to anyone interested in cooking Italian cuisine. I did the risotto menu with Chef Luana and would certainly feel comfortable cooking this on my own now. She really spoiled us with extras like truffles and different kinds of cheese to go with our main dish. Her apartment is nice and it was a pleasure getting to know the other guests as well.
