Well, tonight is the night to gather a group of friends or your favorite someone and join us in our kitchen as we learn some delicious Italian-themed recipes.

It's the ultimate dinner of Italian classics, and it will be hands-on all the way as we work alongside Chef Richard McPeake – graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, cookbook author, and culinary instructor extraordinaire! Chef Richard is professional and passionate about sharing some of his favorite recipes.

He’ll start by showing you how to make a classic appetizer, Canelloni Piedmontese appetizer. Then, you’ll get to tie on an apron and get busy in the kitchen when you work in small groups and learn (and practice) basic cooking techniques like knife skills, making a homemade Italian noodle dough, whisking up a quick Italian Vinaigrette, breading and pan-frying as you prepare a beautiful Grilled Fennel Salad with Sambucca and Fresh Grapefruit, Pork Milanese with Lemon butter and savory Asiago Risotto to accompany your entrée. 

To finish our evening, Chef will show off his culinary skills as he makes Semifreddo, a lovely semi-frozen dessert.  What a menu! 

At the end of our class, we’ll raise a glass of wine and toast to our success in the kitchen as we enjoy the scrumptious dinner you’ve helped create!
