We host a culinary evening where participants gather, cook and eat together around one big cozy table. We share traditional preparation methods where guests learn how to make everything by hand with a menu focused on seasonal dishes and regionalcuisines (i.e. Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, Molise, Tuscany).
The class is hands-on, all participants are involved in all the steps, getting to know both its preparation as well as its cultural importance. Our goal is to share with guests the enormous variety of Italian food with its grains, vegetables, and meats (typically we use less fish because of the high cost of local fish and overfishing).
