Cooking Class: Authentic Meatball Dinner

Discover the method for creating pitch-perfect meatballs every time in this informative cooking class from Chef James. They're the centerpiece of a stunning four-course meal that includes an antipasti starter with anchovies, olives, artisan cheeses and breads, and a salad featuring market greens and a homemade vinaigrette. When you prepare the polpettini meatballs in a homemade tomato ragù using San Marzano tomatoes served over bucatini pasta, your heart will yearn for the Mediterranean. A dessert of dolce la quesada and fresh berries provides a perfect end note.

Class was supposed to be 4:00 PT/ 7:00 ET, yet started at 4:00 ET. So I was unable to make it due to the scheduling of class pop and them having incorrect information. Luckily. I hopped on just in case to check around 4:30 ET and was able to catch half the class. Disappointed in the scheduling but seemed like a great class for what I was able to watch
