Cooking Lessons

One of my favorite parts of being a chef was teaching new cooks the craft and watching them grow. Cooking is a constant learning experience, a skill that will always be useful and make you very popular with your family and friends. I offer lessons for individuals, couples, families and small groups in the comfort of your own home or office. Please see a few of our available lessons below. Custom lesson plans and teaching kitchen available.

Sunday at Nonna’s

Growing up with a Sicilian mother from Brooklyn, we had a lot of big meals on Sunday. My personal favorite was when she would have the big pot of sauce simmering away all day, filled to the brim with homemade meatballs, Italian sausage and pork ribs. You always knew it was almost time to eat when you would smell the garlic bread toasting in the oven.

For this lesson, we will prepare all ingredients from scratch and go through some of the basics of Italian-American cookery. A great event for families and small dinner parties.

Menu:

Garlic Bread

Caesar Salad with Garlic-Croutons, Shaved Parmesan & Creamy Caesar Dressing

Sunday Gravy with Meatballs, Pork Ribs & Sausage
