Cooking Class: Treasures From Southern Italy

Create a stunning menu of classic dishes from the southern Italian tradition.

Learn to craft delicious dishes from the southern region of Italy with Italian-trained Chef Chris in this hands-on cooking class. You’ll gather new skills and learn authentic techniques along the way as you dive into the depths of what Italian cuisine can be.

Start by preparing meatless meatballs using shredded zucchini and fresh ricotta before creating handmade orecchiette pasta topped with a shrimp and tomato sauce seasoned with Calabrian chilis. Then, freshen up your palate with a zesty limoncello sorbet drizzled with an enchanting roasted basil and strawberry sauce.

Chef Chris was very very thorough in his instructions. Finally feel like I understand how my pasta dough should look like. It was a great class to take. Highly recommend! Will take some classes in the future.
