Cooking Class: Seasonal Italian Cooking

Experience what it means to cook with the seasons in this hands-on cooking class, as you prepare signature Italian dishes using fresh, in-season ingredients from the farmers market. 

Italian-trained Chef Chris knows that the secret to really amazing Italian food lies in seasonality, so together you'll create a menu based on locally-harvested ingredients. You'll start by building a white bean crostini with rosemary, roasted garlic and extra virgin olive oil before preparing a fresh kale insalata topped with pumpkin seeds and a citrus vinaigrette. For the main course, you'll highlight locally grown asparagus and mint in a savory lemon risotto dish. Lastly, you'll enjoy a pear and ricotta cake for a divine and seasonal fruit-based dessert.
