Team Building Activity - Italian-American Favorites

Prepare a unique fusion of American and Italian dishes bursting with flavor.

In this hands-on team building class with Chef Paul, your group will learn how to cook classic Italian-American favorites from scratch.

First, create a kale salad paired with dates, walnuts and a piquant lemony dressing. For the main dish, Chef Paul will teach you how to prepare and bake chicken topped with an aromatic garlic and sage butter sauce, and how to combine seasonal vegetables — either asparagus or butternut squash — with Arborio rice for a creamy risotto. Finish the class with a fresh, seasonal fruit sorbet.

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

Chef Paul and the team were fantastic! Everything from start to finish was seamless. Chef Paul was very responsive during our planning time and detailed the why and hows while preparing our meal. The meal was delicious, and it was nice to break bread with colleagues. We hope to see Chef Paul and team again soon!!
