Cooking Class: Mediterranean-Italian Classics

Prepare thoughtful dishes from Italy and the Mediterranean in this hands-on class with Chef Yaakov.

There's more to Italian-Mediterranean cooking than just pasta and sauce. In this gourmet hands-on cooking experience, Chef Yaakov shows you how fresh, flavorful and imaginative the cuisine of the Mediterranean can be. You'll craft an inventive four-course menu featuring a smoked salmon and watercress crostini appetizer; artichoke bruschetta topped with jalapeños; and a savory mushroom risotto with cream entrée. And for a classic dessert that's just sweet enough to satisfy, tiramisu made with coffee, cream cheese and ladyfingers.

Chef Yaakov was friendly, punctual, and the food was AMAZING! He had to work around my four hungry pups and he did a great job helping to make a magical evening.
