Cooking Class: Dreamy Italian Fine Dining

In this immersive cooking class, Chef Dan will teach you how to prepare the same meal he served to a world-famous crooner while working in New York City. What makes these Italian dishes so outstanding is their authentic, fresh ingredients and unique flavor pairings. You’ll start by expertly balancing sweet and savory flavors to create spiedini (Italian kebabs) with creamy buffalo mozzarella, and prosciutto-wrapped figs with spicy honey. For the entrée, you’ll cook a beautiful filet mignon, stuffed with sweet Italian sausage and a variety of vegetables. To finish the meal, you’ll craft an authentic Italian cake infused with coconut.
