Join us for a dinner where we do all the cooking! Each month we open the doors between our classrooms and seat 40 guests for a five-course family-style spread, featuring all the ingredients we’re excited about. This winter we’re cooking an Italian American holiday feast, with each dish a contemporary spin on the delicious flavors brought from Italy to America, where they became something new, and stayed true to their roots. Pricing includes tip, a wine pairing with each savory course, and tea or coffee with dessert.
