CULINARY WORKSHOPS & SOCIAL DINNERS
We are pleased to present a series of unique culinary workshops, with a distinct Italian flair! Join us for an intimate cooking experience, where you’ll explore beginner-level rustic recipes for contemporary living and entertaining.
All workshops are interactive and provide an opportunity for students to make their own meal alongside the instructor. All workshops will include a pairing of wine and a communal meal to enjoy your culinary creations with the other participants.
