Cooking Class: Timeless Italian Classics

Dive into the art of traditional Italian cooking in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Kelly. Embrace the rich flavors of Italy and learn professional knife skills and kitchen techniques as you prepare a show-stopping three-course meal. 

Chef Kelly's class will teach you all the intricacies of classic recipes you'll want to make again and again. Using the highest quality organic ingredients, you'll master crispy arancini rice balls served with basil pesto, pine nuts and Parmesan. From there, move on to the main course of delicate arborio rice risotto prepared with carrots, onions, fontina cheese and dry white wine. For dessert, take on a timeless Italian classic: tiramisu with mascarpone ladyfingers, cream, cocoa powder and coffee.

We chose this class because we could not use the gift card my nephew gave us for Christmas on premium classes, which totally limited our options. Had he known this was the case he would have looked elsewhere. The class itself was a total disappointment. 20+ people is too many when you only have one pot and one frying pan. We were fortunate to be in the first group she demonstrated wrapping dumplings to or we would have been there all night. Chef Kelly demonstrated 6 ‘wraps’ in rapid fire succession and moved on to the next group. My wife and I struggled to remember what was shown and never had Chef Kelly come back to help. We did our best and headed to the pot to keep the night moving on. I left having no better understanding of preparing dumplings than when I arrived. The description of this event is misleading. The filling is premade, water to ‘seal’ wrappers was filled “after” her demonstration, no napkins on the table to wipe your hands, and it was so loud you could barely hear her very brief instructions. I could learn more on YouTube. Don’t waste your money here.

This was a fun, educational class. We left and immediately went and bought a pasta maker. You will love it.
