A Taste of Italy (In-person)

Photo: Italian food

Treat yourself to "a taste of Italy," where the food is as irresistible as the art and music

Like its heritage, la cucina italiana is spirited and diverse. Meals form a cornerstone in Italian society. Whether dining in a simple, down-home osteria or world-class ristorante, the pace remains unhurried, while the passion flows freely.

Instructor Mark Temelini doesn't claim to be a foodie or a capocuoco, but he is enthusiastic to share his mother's and grandmothers’ traditional Italian recipes. As he demonstrates the techniques of Italian food, you'll get hands-on experience preparing, cooking, and eating three typical Italian dishes, including antipasti, homemade pasta or pizza, and dolci.

All materials are included in the price.
