Join Chef Diervion for a hands-on cooking class inspired by North Italian cuisine. Challenge your creativity as you learn how to put a unique modern twist on regional Italian dishes. Begin by combining the tangy flavors of barbecued chicken with tomato basil salsa for a unique bruschetta appetizer. Next, prepare pork braciola with pesto, bacon, cheese and a bright mango salsa served with herbed potatoes. For dessert, learn how to prepare a creamy panna cotta with mixed berry coulis and a hint of citrus.
