Chef James brings the rustic tastes of Italy's landscape to your table with vegetarian cooking classes.

Your entrée is handmade potato gnocchi with San Marzano tomatoes, cream and hot pepper. For dessert, enjoy a rich and creamy postre la quesada with local berries.

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
