Cooking Class: Master Dishes From the Italian Kitchen

Learn what makes Italian cuisine one of the most popular in the world in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Alex. It's a delicious lesson in Old World flavor made with attention to detail and gourmet flair. 

Begin by preparing homemade bruschetta featuring creamy ricotta and zesty cherry tomatoes roasted to smoky perfection. Then, create your own handmade pasta and ragu sauce for a primo pappardelle Bolognese. Assemble a green salad with fresh arugula and parmesan tossed with shallot vinaigrette made from scratch and finish up with a butterscotch budino for a chef's kiss of an Italian dessert.

Chef Alex showed me how to make an Asian breakfast dish using rice, eggs, soy sauce and a few other ingredients. I think I will now incorporate rice into my breakfast dish line up! This turned out really yummy.
