Using regional ingredients and time-honored techniques, you will prepare a feast of classic Italian dishes beginning with homemade herbed focaccia with garlic and rosemary. Learn to make an authentic spaghetti carbonara to pair with a bright and peppery arugula salad with savory pine nuts and lemon vinaigrette. For dessert, you will create a rich and creamy dark chocolate tiramisu with bold espresso and silky mascarpone.
