Milan is one of the epicenters of the fashion industry, the hub of Italian banking and industry, and also home to some amazing classic Italian dishes. This is the land of butter, cream, risotto and veal.  No tomato sauce based dishes or meatballs here. The foods of Milan and Lombardia have more in common with France to which they share a kinship of culture and history.

Come join us as we celebrate the rich and delicious dishes of Milan. On this evening you will learn how to make:

Spinach malfatti in gorgonzola sauce – spinach ricotta dumplings with creamy blue cheese sauce

Osso bucco a la Milanese – Veal shank slow braised and served with saffron risotto

Meringhe e crema di cioccolato – Floating islands in milk chocolate cream

Though Lombardia is not known for their wine production, they are conveniently neighbors to two of the best wine regions of Italy: Piedmont and the Veneto.

Our sommelier has selected some wines to pair perfectly with this memorable northern Italian menu. Register now – December 22nd from 6-9pm. $240 per couple.

World icons Benjamin Franklin, Plato, Gandhi, and Paul McCartney all have been advocates of the remarkable health benefits of a vegetarian diet. There are various types of vegetarians – over 6 at last count.  It is not which type you are, only that you benefit from the diet.  Additionally, a vegetarian diet does not have to be difficult, boring, or limited.  Most cuisines from around the world include amazing vegetarian dishes.

Our Chefs have created a series of classes which will introduce you to the delicious, easy to create, regional cuisine from countries all over the world that are totally vegetarian.

Campania, Italy,  is rich in culture, especially when it comes to its cuisine.  Naples, it’s capital, is the gateway to Campania.  Here is where the idea of pizza was conceived, as well as it’s pasta (spaghetti being the best known), and the use of tomatoes.

However, today, we will be focusing on creating unique dishes that highlight the bounty harvested from the rich fertile volcanic soil surrounding the Bay of Naples under Mount Vesuvius’ watchful eye.

“Russian” Salad (Italian Vegetable Salad)
Wild Mushroom Manicotti Crepe Gratinee with Fine Herbs
Struffoli (honey Drenched Fritters)

Enjoy the wines we have selected to compliment these delicious dishes.

Come, learn an exciting healthy alternative to MEAT.

Register today for Meatless Monday – Naples Monday, December 12, 6-9pm $80!
