Cooking Class - Simple Risotto and Paella

Discover the beauty and simplicity of two of the world's best, most renowned rice dishes.

In this hands-on class, Chef Cindy and David take the mystery out of cooking Italian risotto and Spanish paella by showing you the essential techniques to mastering these incredible dishes.

You will make a satisfying roasted vegetable paella as well as a smoked chicken and wild mushroom risotto. While these dishes cook and their juices mingle, flavors intensify, and textures tenderize, you will work on making a kale Caesar salad with homemade dressing as well as learn how to handcraft your very own luscious espresso truffles for dessert.

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

David and Cindy were awesome hosts and gracious in welcoming us into their home. They had plenty of cooking technique tips-and-tricks to add to my culinary repertoire! The paella turned out fantastic, the home made caesar dressing for the Kale salad was the best I've ever had, and the espresso truffles were delicious. I highly recommend paying them a visit for a class!

First off ..WOW what an amazing experience!!! We were not sure exactly what to expect, but to say Cindy and David exceeded our expectations frankly would be selling them short. They are amazing, patient teachers, and we learned a lot. My girlfriend being much more experienced in cooking than I even commented at how much she learned . After sipping wine and learning the ins and outs of what we were going to be undertaking , we dove right in and the meal turned out incredible. Frankly, the only disappointment I could say is that I have to go back home to cook myself and I know it won’t taste nearly as good! This was money well spent and we cannot wait to do this again!
