In this interactive cooking class, let Chef Raina teach you how to use all of your senses in the kitchen. Explore textures and aromas while learning to balance flavors and spices as you prepare this adaptable, Italian-inspired menu with recipes perfect for lunch, dinner or snacking. A hearty massaged kale and chickpea salad kicks off the meal, followed by a palate-cleansing melon basil salad. The main course is a slow-cooked tomato basil sauce with crispy eggplant Parmesan on a soft hero roll. For dessert, enjoy a sweet and refreshing strawberry sorbet.
