Cooking Class: Italian Made From Scratch

Add show-stopping Italian classics to your culinary repertoire in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Myisha. 

Working from scratch, you'll explore the bold flavors and time-honored cooking techniques of Old World Italy as you create three traditional dishes. Class begins with a brief tutorial on the history of pasta. From there, you'll utilize the highest quality ingredients to prepare a zesty panzanella with heirloom tomatoes, crusty bread, arugula and shallots. Move on to a main course of handmade pasta and rich made-from-scratch marinara sauce. For dessert, whip up an iconic tiramisu studded with chocolate-covered espresso beans.

One of the reasons we take a cooking class is to find new recipes to try and make at home. Sadly, our instructor never provided the cooking instructions. I emailed her several times, and her responses were computer was broken, she was busy, etc. She finally mailed the recipe for just the dipping sauce, how about for the dumplings which were the main attraction? Or the broth for the dumplings which appeared to be a big deal? This was a unsatisfactory experience, which is a shame because we really wanted to like it.

It was a fun event and very informative. The only thing missing was a recipe sheet to bring home and take notes on during the class. Look forward to next week’s class.
