The night will begin with a classic Italian appetizer, ragù alla Bolognese. Then, for the main course, you'll enjoy a savory chicken saltimbocca served alongside an elegant eggplant caponata garnished with a rich truffled cauliflower pureé. Lastly, you'll indulge in a favorite Italian treat for dessert as you savor a sweet strawberry Nutella semifreddo. Be sure to bring your own wine and beer to enjoy throughout your evening of Italian cooking and fine dining, if desired.

I'm sure this course would have been wonderful, but for the second time in a row, I got a notification last minute saying not enough people had signed up and therefore they were canceling the class.

Food was delicious , the chef was great and the class was very informative. Atmosphere was also like walking into your grandma’s dining room for one big family dinner. Very fun!

The chefs were all knowledgeable and eager to share what they knew about not only the dishes we were making but also how to organize and run your kitchen, along with great knife skills. The food was fantastic and did not disappoint.

The event was cancelled the day before by the organizer and they have been unresponsive in returning our money for a refund for the event since we will be unable to make an alternative or the new scheduled date.

Great experience and incredible food. The chefs were patient, knowledgeable and genuinely eager to make us part of the experience.

With a focus on sushi, Italian and French cuisines, Chef Ivan is always excited to share novel kitchen techniques with his guests and students.
