Cooking Class: Rustic Classics From Southern Italy

Chef Francesca shares a selection of hearty dishes from her childhood in Sardinia.

The rustic menu in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Francesca represents the best of the region, and all recipes she loved while growing up in southern Italy. An authentic experience of flavor and tradition await you!

You’ll prepare a platter of cured meats and cheese chosen by the chef before choosing either an arugula salad with walnuts and figs or a fennel salad with Parmesan and pecans. For your entrée, you’ll select homemade tagliatelle carbonara or pistachio-crusted mahi-mahi, and desert is your choice of a classic tiramisu or a creamy panna cotta baked from scratch.

Francesca was an absolute delight to learn from and spend the afternoon with. We made lasagna and risotto, which were both delicious, and left absolutely stuffed. I would highly recommend taking a class with Francesca.
