Cooking Class: Marvelous Northern Italian Meal

In this fun, hands-on cooking class, you’ll work with Chef Laura to create an Italian feast from scratch. Northern Italian fare is traditionally heavy on meat — but this meal offers a lighter take. To begin, you’ll “massage” kale to tenderize it for a Caesar salad. You’ll then craft gnocchi from scratch, using only fresh ingredients like ricotta and lemon. For the entree, Chef Laura will show you how to cook beef short ribs in a pressure cooker. To cap the meal, you’ll whip up a classic Italian dessert: tiramisu.

My girlfriend and I had such an incredible night and cooking class with Chef Laura. Not only did she teach us how to prepare everything from start to finish, but she made it so much more fun than just a cooking class, chef Laura is now family. The food was absolutely delicious, and it is the best date night and experience we've ever had. Looking forward to doing another one soon, highly recommended!
