The Italian Language Program is pleased to present:
(In Italian and in English, when necessary)
Our objective is to properly educate students to the pleasures of the table and to good food. The instructor will share the concepts of simple, yet sophisticated Italian cuisine while teaching you how to prepare a gourmet meal. It’s a fun occasion to also learn and practice Italian, and learn about the origin and history behind some recipes. Our instructors, in fact, are not restaurant owners, nor famous chef, but ladies with a high educational degree, who learned their cuisine skills from their families, their traditions and their passion for this art.
Under the instructor’s supervision, students will carry out all the stages of preparing the meal, in order to become accustomed to the techniques and difficulties at hand.
In the comfort of a private home, having a good time, sipping wine, and enjoying together the prepared meal, participants will learn and experience the culinary arts, transforming cooking into a fun activity, and a manner of self-expression.
The instructor will begin with fundamentals, starting with basic recipes and techniques. In reality, these first steps are the most difficult: it is easy to impress with an elaborate dish using many ingredients, however, a real culinary guru is able to use certain techniques to make a simple pasta with tomato sauce and basil or risotto unforgettable!
