Online Cooking Class - Date Night at the Italian Opera

Enjoy an Italian dinner (and a show!) in this virtual cooking class with Chef Chris.

Join Italy-trained Chef Chris and master three authentic Italian dishes at home in this interactive online cooking class. This class features pantry-friendly ingredients and a performance by a professional opera singer.

First, learn how to craft a simple but flavor-forward panzanella salad, then get to rolling homemade pasta dough with just a few ingredients and complemented by a lemon-cream sauce — no pasta machine required. End your delicious meal with a classic tiramisu.

"Savor a date night at the opera from the comfort of your own home. In this romantic class, you'll make fresh fettuccine with your Italy-trained chef. After crafting a decadent meal together, we'll close out your romantic evening with a live performance — sung by a professional opera singer! Transport yourself to Italy in this orchestra of flavors." - Chef Chris

We very much enjoyed the event, which was a little hard to keep up with at times (meaning, Chef went a little fast), but that's probably cause this was out 1st virtual cooking event and our own prepartion may have been a little lacking in some areas. I love the fact that I now know how to make pasta, and I love the Panzanella Salad - I make my own croutons all the time - they're delicious - this is another thing I loved learning how to make. We are better for the experiecne cause we learned so much. Thanks!
