Pasta Making for Pre-school Moms & Other Busy Morning People!

Thursday, May 23

$50 per person

Instructor: Chef Vita Palmieri

Too busy to take a cooking class? Drop off the kiddos at preschool or leave your morning work for two hours, and join us for a casual Italian cooking class tailored to morning people. In this social midmorning class, Chef Vita will teach you to make two springtime staples that you can replicate at home for your family. We'll start with Spring in the Bowl," a light springtime soup made with fresh peas and asparagus. Next, we'll tackle Tagliatelle and Tomato sauce, using farm-fresh eggs. We will prepare the pasta dough and fresh tomato sauce, and top it with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese from Italy. We'll sit down for an early bite at 11, and wrap up in time to get you out the door for preschool pickup or to tackle your to-do list.

Space is limited to 12 people

For our Winter series of Cooking Around the Globe, we've got lots of new delicious recipes to share & prepare!

From savory warming soups & stews to fresh baked desserts, we've got this winter covered! We're already dreaming of Moroccan Tagine, Mexican Tacos and Indian Chickpea-Coconut Curry, to name just a few!

For spring, we'll get ready for the blooming season with a fresh new harvest that will take our spring series from South America to Southeast Asia! The spring global tasting tour may include recipes such as savory Meat & Veggie-filled Empanadas, Alfajores (caramel sandwich cookies) and Chicken Zoodle soup (with zucchini & rice noodles). Of course, eating what we cook is always part of the fun. Let the food journey begin!
