About this Event
Join our Italian Master Chef Instructor, Gianluca, on a culinary journey. Here you will learn the history and traditions of regional Italian cuisine.
The starting point for our class is Liguria, the region of the city of Genoa. This city created one of the most famous cold sauces in the world, pesto alla Genovese (Basil pesto). Forget about the food processor! Chef Gianluca will teach only the most authentic techniques during class, and for pesto that includes a mortar and pestle. This is the ultimate handmade pasta making experience.
From Genoa we will move to Emilia Romagna, the Italian region well known for Mortadella, Prosciutto di Parma, and Bolognese sauce. Yum!! Here we will learn to make fresh egg Tagliatelle pasta completely from scratch. The method for preparing your pasta dish will come from Veneto, the homeland of Bellini and Tiramisu. Once you have completed your culinary journey and taken the steps to cook and plate your dish, we will sit down to enjoy the best plate of pasta Italy can offer without stepping on a plane.
No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients, which are easy to find at local markets if you don’t already have them in your home kitchen. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting (or taste testing).
Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in, wearing your mask. Guests in the same booking party will work together throughout the class by sharing ingredients and equipment.
The nature of our classes are set up so that booking parties will work together during class, sharing both ingredients and equipment. Drinks are NOT included in the ticket price. Guests are invited to BYOB (beer, wine, and champagne only). Please note that drinks are limited to one bottle of wine per pair.
