Cooking Class - Italian Favorites Made Easy

Join Chef Sawsan in this hands-on introduction class to Italian cooking made easy and delicious.

In this hands-on class with Chef Sawsan, you will learn how to prepare three favorite Italian dishes that are complex in flavor, but not so complex in execution.

Chef Sawsan's menu is thoughtfully constructed so each dish wonderfully complements the next. You will begin by learning the technique to Italian fried polenta served with an olive tapenade. Then, for the main course, you will prepare a juicy, flavorful chicken piccata with roasted asparagus that comes together in a cinch. For dessert, an easy raspberry panna cotta that is pure silk.

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

My girlfriend and I had a private vegan cooking lesson with Chef Sawsan and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. She taught us how to make vegan paella which was absolutely delicious and surprisingly easy to follow. She provided a comfortable atmosphere and made us feel right at home in her kitchen. She was also happy to answer the hundred questions my girlfriend had about vegan cooking and taught her useful tricks in the kitchen that she will probably use forever. We would definitely take a class with her again and we recommend it for anyone interested in learning about vegan cooking or eating delicious vegan food.

When we arrived at Chef Sawsan’s, we immediately felt at home. She was so warm and down to earth. We had such an incredible time learning from her and eating her delicious food. We not only took home our leftovers, but also a wealth of knowledge about the meal and techniques that we weren’t already aware of. This experience was a joy from start to finish - we are already planning our next visit with her!

Chef Sawsan was incredible with the way she welcomed us into her kitchen and brought us through a delicious evening of Italian cooking. She taught us the methods and techniques that go into the preparation. Most importantly, she was able to couple the deliciousness of the food with the technique of preparation and the mood of the evening, making it an experience we will always remember and can easily transport ourselves back when we prepare the meal on our own.
