Teacher Viola Buitoni
Ask what is the critical ingredient that pushes food from great to extraordinary and Viola Buitoni, our Italian instructor, will unhesitatingly answer: “LOVE”. No day like St. Valentine’s to prove her right. Romance your darling with all the passion Italians bring to the stove by cooking side by side with the flavors, shapes and colors of love.
Viola leads this hands-on class with a romantic menu for the ages:
Hand-cut tagliatelle; the nuanced depth of unsweetened chocolate enhanced by a little salt (speck), a little richness (mascarpone), and a hint of nutty sweetness (hazelnuts).
Braised oxtail with winter root vegetables; impressively flavorful yet truly easy to prepare. Followed by a light and refreshing winter salad of chicories and seasonal vegetables.
Chocolate desserts; A tempting assortment, to be savored and added to your collection of recipes to embellish the memorable meals of years to come.
