In this in-person cooking class, Chef Luana shares her techniques and variations for preparing rich and creamy risotto. You'll begin with an appetizer of fresh burrata with arugula and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano. The risotto is accompanied by your choice of mushrooms and black truffles or shrimp and zucchini. A rustic yet elegant ending is homemade crostatine, or crostata. These delicate mini Italian pies are filled with fresh homemade preserves and provide sweet balance to this authentic Italian meal.
First time with Chef Luana and YOU have to go! It’s the cutest spot. The risotto is to die for. IT WAS FIRE!! The chef was very attentive and the apricot crostata was so amazing and we will definitely be back again. She made us feel welcomed and gave us an amazing experience.

My girlfriend and I took Chef Luana’s homemade pasta cooking class, and it was excellent! When we first got there she provided us with some Amazing appetizers before we started cooking. She makes some amazing bread too! We learned how to make two kinds of pasta and both were great! We had a lot of fun with Chef Luana, and I would highly recommend this class to anyone. That was the most authentic Italian food I’ve ever had outside Italy!
Chef Luana inherited her culinary passion from her grandmother. Born and raised in Italy, she found success as an entrepreneur after establishing a beachside restaurant in her home country while mastering the time-honored art of pizza oven cuisine. She is one of Italy’s precious few professional female pizza makers who utilizes wood-oven cookery. Chef Luana’s classes breathe new life into old-world recipes and traditional techniques as she passes her considerable knowledge to her students.
