Rediscovering Italian Classics

Event Date:

March 1, 2022

Event Time:

6:30 pm

This class is a bow to three super-classic Italian dishes, 

Vegetarian Menu!

Polenta, Risotto and Pesto – and the traditional ways each is made.

Polenta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Risoto Milanese with Zucchini and Chickpeas

Penne Pasta with Pesto Sauce and Vegetables

Arancini with Mushroom Ragu

We’ll make pesto from a mound of fresh basil, a whisper of garlic, and beautiful olive oil; polenta from cornmeal, salt and pepper; and brilliantly colored and fragrant saffron risotto that will make us cry with joy!

The key to this class is technique. You’ll practice the very few, but very important, steps to make each dish. There are no tricks or gimmicks here – only traditional techniques.

In addition to saffron risotto, pesto, and soft polenta, we will make two different vegetable broths from scratch, learn about additional variations of the risotto you can make at home; turn leftover risotto into Arancini (fried rice-cheese balls), and make a classic tomato sauce to enjoy with soft hot polenta.

Please feel free to bring wine/beer.

3 hour class

Please park on Pixley Street, wherever you may find parking, or a short block to the East at the train station.

Please note: if class doesn’t fill up to a minimum of 8 people; class will have to cancel and we will reschedule the class for you.

While we try as hard as possible to accommodate each group of friends, students learn in teams of three or four, so there may be times where a member, or members of your group will join other teams. We promise you won’t be far and it’s also a great way to make new friends.
