Cooking Class: Contemporary Italian Cuisine

A collection of Italian classics with some modern twists added, courtesy of Chef Federico.

As a child, Chef Federico drew inspiration from his grandmother’s traditional Italian home cooking. In this hands-on cooking class, he puts his own innovative spin on a collection of classic recipes.

Start your lesson with a flavorful oven-baked eggplant pizzette with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce. Then, learn to create a creamy risotto with onion and kiwi. And for dessert, master the art of the perfect Italian pastry with a crostate alle albicocche flavored with apricot jam.
