Grillin’ & Chillin’ - The Italian Way!
“Selvaggio!” in Italian means “go crazy!” So, this won’t be an “ordinary” Saturday night. Grab your friends and be prepared for something different and fun!
Tonight’s recipes will be inspired by Italian cuisine featuring fresh ingredients and grilled specialties. The one and only Bruce Campbell, an award-winning BBQ Pro, hosts this interactive hands-on class.
Let’s start with a unique cocktail (duh!) … perhaps an Aperol Spritz? Then, we’ll don an apron, and cook in small groups alongside this consummate professional as you learn the basics of grilling, including fire-building, heat zones, checking for doneness, gas versus coal grilling, etc. (Don’t worry … there won’t be any tests.) It’s a fun and informative approach to a cooking class, with some humor thrown in … all in a laid-back style. Oh yes, and you’ll learn to cook some great Italian-inspired grilled dishes featuring fresh ingredients, too!
We’ll start off with Antipasto Skewers and a gorgeous Panzanella Salad. Then on to our grilled entrée, Chicken Diavolo served with Fire-Roasted Potatoes and Grilled Zucchini & Ricotta. Finally, we’ll make Grilla-misu! You heard me.
Those of you know Bruce already know that he just HAS to live up to his nickname (“The Beverage Dude”), so you’ll taste and discuss Italian wine and learn to make an Italian Amaretto Sour that you’ll definitely want to serve up at your next backyard gathering.
