Cooking Class - Italian Comfort Food From Scratch

Uncover the colorful flavors of different vegetarian takes on authentic, mouthwatering Italian favorites.

In this hands-on cooking class, you will learn recipes for four traditional Italian comfort foods. Chef Jose will teach you how to craft vegetarian takes on each dish, while also focusing on the classic ingredients that make Italian fare so flavorful and delicious.

Begin by preparing a simple, yet elegant caprese salad centered on fresh, high-quality ingredients. Next, bread and fry your own potato croquetas before layering eggplant, ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese between decadent lasagna noodles made from scratch. For dessert, make rich and creamy cannolis by hand in true Italian fashion.

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