Cooking Classes

Learn how to create traditional Italian dishes with Lu Matrascia. Lu demonstrates cooking techniques and conducts impromptu tastings of various foods imported directly from Italy. You get to ask questions and see every step in the process of each recipe. At the end of class, students leave with recipes, a better understanding of Italian food and culture, and a full stomach.

Each class, with lunch, will last about four hours. Antipasti, pasta, risotto, entrees and desserts will be among the delicious dishes prepared.
