We can’t wait to share with you our Italian heritage!

Spaghetti aglio e olio

(Spaghetti w/ roasted garlic and EVOO)

This is the class you don’t want to miss!  I will teach you how to make one of the most beloved spaghetti dishes in Italy!  When Italians want a quick pasta dish and only have a few ingredients they turn to this masterpiece!  I will be teaching you the Napoli style which includes a bit of tomato.  You will go home with three recipe variations.  This is the dish my husband made for me on our first date!  You can read about “He had me at First Bite.”  This is the perfect dish to fix for your Valentine.  Did you know my husband is from St. Valentine’s birth city?!  In fact their city has a huge celebration because St. Valentine is their patron Saint!



What a better partnership than centuries of family recipes and an elite extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar company!  Each time you come to our demonstrations we will learn in 20-40 minutes how to make the featured recipe and you will go home with the recipe as well as the knowledge needed to make it.  An added bonus is you get to sample Redstone balsamic vinegars and EVOO and enjoy 10% off all products this evening!
