Cooking Class: Italian Favorites Vegetarian-Style

Classic dishes get a plant-based update in this hands-on cooking  class with Chef Federico.

A master of reinventing traditional Italian recipes with a modern sensibility, Chef Federico has created a three-course menu that highlights vegetarian flavor and healthful flair. This class teaches you the secrets to making these novel recipes for yourself.

Chef Federico uses no meat substitutes in these delicious plant-forward selections. You’ll prepare a panzanella salad with bread, tomatoes and vegetables and a savory orecchiette dish featuring broccoli and garlic. And the lemon sorbet you'll create for dessert is as wholesome as it is light and delicious.

This past weekend, my husband and I took our two grandchildren (our 11-year-old granddaughter and our 13-year-old grandson) to Chef Federico's pizza-making class. We all truly enjoyed the experience. We skewered cheese and vegetables as an appetizer (so much fun; easy to make; and allowed each of us to choose what we wanted to eat); we baked thick and thin pepperoni and plain pan pizzas (which were delicious); and we learned the ins and outs of making meringue for our strawberry tiramisu dessert (which was sooo tasty)! We all learned a great deal and Chef Federico had lots of patience with the four of us as we asked many questions throughout the evening. A wonderful experience was had by all! We highly recommend taking a class with Chef Federico.
