 ALL CLASSES ARE SOLD OUT!

January 8th and 10th – Pastabilities!

Our ever popular hands on class! Today you’ll help with homemade pasta which will become silky ribbons of egg fettuccine accompanied by our Creamy San Marzano Tomato Sauce.

Homemade Butternut Squash Ravioli will be gently coated with a creamy Sage Bechamel and finally the homemade Gnocchi will become your family standard when covered with a bright pesto!

Three pastas, three techniques, three sauces—the “pastabilities “ are endless.

January 22nd and 24th – The Tuscan Kitchen

As the season turns, the Tuscan kitchen becomes fragrant with earthy herbs and vegetables. The antipasti will be ready and waiting with delicious Cannellini Bean and Sage Bruschetta, Tuna Croquettes and our famous Roasted Veggie and Burrata Cheese Salad. The nibbles will hold us over as we prepare “hands on” Potato Ravioli with Zucchini, Pecorino Romano Cheese and Speck—A wonderfully tasty relative of prosciutto. A family style “Pollo al Vino Rosso” is perfect. Pieces of Chicken on the bone simmered in red wine and herbs. Our popular Butternut Squash with pecans and grapes—yes grapes—is the accompaniment. We serve salad last at an Italian meal with pears, walnuts and arugula with dried cranberries will be just right before a light and airy zabaglione—Linda has perfected it!

The recipes will become your seasonal favorites and might even become part of your Thanksgiving table! We would be honored!

February 12th and 14th – Dinner with your Amore!

Come prepare a romantic dinner for your amore! The menu will include crepe manicotti, chicken breast stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, green beans with kalamata olives and tomatoes and our special take on tiramisu with chocolate-covered strawberries. We will toast with a glass of Prosecco!

February 26th and 28th – Dinner at Nonna’s!

All true Italians gather at “headquarters” for an early Sunday family feast. Nonna cooks, aunts and cousins pitch in and the guys tie the “mappinas’ around the collars of their white shirts to save them from splattering tomato sauce! The typical meal is a true banquet and although this class is presented by demonstration—the recipes are yours to take home and recreate often any day of the week and for any occasion! Wedding Soup, Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi and our Almost Famous Meatballs. Fillets of boneless chicken breast in a wonderful artichoke and sun dried tomato sauce—the veggie—Greens and Beans. A light and cool Italian Crème Cake is perfect with an espresso—we all miss those Sundays so!

March 5th and 7th – Two Lasagnas and a Chicken!

A delicious creation in lasagna form filled with arugula and prosciutto. And for the mushroom lover, our creation with portobellos, porcini and button mushrooms. Don’t think that all lasagnas are equal—these are better! Our own delicious “Chicken Calabria”—the boneless breast of chicken is just an accent to the wonderful sauce with sundried tomatoes and artichoke heart—topped off with a beautiful roasted beet and orange salad—you’ll have a party just to recreate this wonderful meal!

March 19th and 21st – Gotta Love Lemons!

We must feature this class every session since it is so popular and so often requested. Today our Lemon Cream Sauce will coat the homemade pasta which has been infused with fresh lemon —it’s delicious! For our meat entrée—lemony chicken piccata accompanied by bright green Swiss Chard braised in olive oil and yes—fresh lemon! Finally-our ever popular Lemon Love Cake will almost end the meal –just before you try a tiny bit of homemade Limoncello. We’ll even recruit you to help start our next batch.
