Cooking Class: Cook Italian Classics Like a Nonna

Start off by learning the best recipe for bruschetta featuring tomatoes, garlic and olive oil, served atop crisp crostini bread. Next, you'll roll mini meatballs out of expertly-seasoned pork, beef and fresh herbs. Your entrée is a savory Tuscan-style chicken on a bed of handmade linguini with a side of heavenly rosemary mushroom risotto. For dessert, enjoy whipped mousse in chocolate, strawberry or lemon flavors.
