Cooking Class - Roman Cafe Classics

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Roman cafe culture in this hands-on culinary experience.

You'll begin the class by preparing a punchy pasta dish, and a lemony and buttery chicken piccata. For dessert, you'll bake up an indulgent and irresistible batch of sweet almond cookies with blue cheese, marinated local cherries, and local black pepper-scented honey.

we really enjoyed our experience and meeting with Conner! the food was delicious and he was super knowledgeable willing to answer questions on things outside of the menu we were tasting. We'll probably do it again but have him come to us.

Well-traveled, experienced Chef Conor will invite you to take a little culinary adventure to the places he has visited and loved -- French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish recipes. Rustic and simple, they are full of colors, textures and flavors that will transport you to the country of your dreams in a second. With his wonderful personality and clear cooking instructions, any party, a date -- or, if you just want to learn how to make trout in browned butter -- you are sure to have a blast!
