Last year, I bought @WineGuyTO and I some Living Social deals for a cooking class at Nella Cucina. You may remember it was where I took part in the John Plasko and Eat Rice USA demo. It took us a while to choose which class we wanted to take, because they sell out fast! We went with the hands-on Picnic Class (range of $95-$125), just in time for the start of Spring. @WineGuyTO unfortunately fell ill, but my good friend @munchkinkaty was able to step in at the last moment.
The hands-on classes are great because the instructor goes over the steps for each dish and then the 4 people at the your table make each of the recipes. I love that there are lots of instructors who walk around, giving tips and helping overall. We were also sent copies of the recipes via email after the class, as well as taking home leftovers.
On the menu:
- Cold spring pea soup
- Muffuleta sandwich
- napa slaw
- Spaghetti fritatta
- Kitchen sink cookies
We had a great time in the class and I will definitely be signing up for other classes in the future.
