CCOM 2036

Treat yourself to a Taste of Italy, where the cuisine is as irresistible as the art and music. Like its heritage, Italian cuisine is spirited and diverse. Meals form a cornerstone of Italian society. Whether dining in a simple, down-home Osteria or world-class Ristorante, the pace remains unhurried, while the passion flows freely.

Join seasoned home cook Mark Temelini as he shares his mother's and his two grandmothers' traditional Italian recipes. You'll get hands-on experience cooking and preparing (and eating!) three typical Italian dishes.

  • April 27, 2019: caprese Salad, pizza capricciosa, biscotti
  • May 11, 2019: melon with prosciutto, tagliatelle with bolognese sauce, pizzelle with nutella

All materials are provided.
