Cooking Class: Italian Favorites Vegetarian-Style

Classic dishes get a plant-based update in this hands-on cooking  class with Chef Federico.

A master of reinventing traditional Italian recipes with a modern sensibility, Chef Federico has created a three-course menu that highlights vegetarian flavor and healthful flair. This class teaches you the secrets to making these novel recipes for yourself.

Chef Federico uses no meat substitutes in these delicious plant-forward selections. You’ll prepare a panzanella salad with bread, tomatoes and vegetables and a savory orecchiette dish featuring broccoli and garlic. And the lemon sorbet you'll create for dessert is as wholesome as it is light and delicious.
