Our delicious menu will consist of 4 courses, with plenty of red wine. The menu is subject to change with the seasons and what is fresh daily. An EXAMPLE of what we will cook is an Antipasto platter, Hand-made pici pasta with a Tuscan ragu, Sliced Chianina beef with fresh green & red pepper corns, arugula, tomatoes, & parmesan shavings & Panna cotta with a mixed berry sauce!! Plus Italian coffee and some of my very own Lemoncello!! You will receive an apron (you can keep), recipes, and all the knowledge needed to recreate what you learned, when you get back home!! All dietary needs are welcome! Classes are from 2-12 people, lunch or dinner, around 3.5 hours long plus how long it takes to sit and enjoy the meal.
