Class: A Taste of Italy with Chef Sandy DiGiovanni

Friday, March 6, 2020 at 6:30 PM – 9 PM

Class: A Taste of Italy with Chef Sandy DiGiovanni

The Italians really know how to eat, don’t they? Tonight’s incredible instructor, Chef Sandy DiGiovanni, is a name many of you foodies may recognize. Sandy was a finalist on NBC’s “America’s Next Great Restaurant” in 2011.

This delightful, energetic and talented chef was raised by a restaurateur mother and a baker father. As she says, she was “born with silver measuring spoons in her mouth and wrapped in swaddling aprons” and therefore destined to be in the kitchen. We’re very happy she’s in OUR kitchen this evening to teach us some of her favorite Italian recipes.

Chef Sandy believes that food is not just fuel in Italian culture – it is an art, a deeply intimate act meant to be shared with cherished friends and family, and in many ways, a performance. It is often compared to a dance or an opera – one that has a distinct beginning, a lead up to the main event, and a slow crescendo leading to a finale that will leave you wanting to stand up, tears streaming down your face, yelling “Bravo”!!

Your outstanding meal tonight will feel like an Italian Culinary Opera, as it begins with savory Baked Homemade Ricotta (you heard me) on crusty grilled bread, then moves on to a sensational Arugula, Pine Nut, Pecorino and Pear Insalata.

Our entrée is comforting Beef Stroganoff Italian-Style Braised Short Ribs with Mascarpone that’s served with creamy Wild Mushroom Risotto as your perfectly paired side. Finally, we’ll end the evening with a captivating finale – Honey and Fennel Cake served with homemade Espresso Liqueur. Mama Mia!

Class: A Croissant Is A Beautiful Thing

Ahhhh, the croissant… that beautiful, flaky, buttery, golden, crescent-shaped, joy-in-your-mouth pastry that sings to the taste buds. (What?! You were thinking the same thing?) Considered elusive even to the most seasoned baker, many don’t think croissants are within their reach skill-wise until a professional baker tells them that yes, it IS possible!

Your experienced instructor, Chef Natasha Goellner, is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute, past owner of Mulberry & Mott’s and currently the Pastry Chef at The Antler Room, so you can bet your whisk she knows what she’s talking about!

Today, she’ll share her talents and time with us as she teaches you how to make and bake croissants… step by step. It’s a process that takes some time, but the rewards are amazing and completely worth it!!

Sit back and prepare to take lots of notes as you’ll be garnering much knowledge about flours and yeast and butter as Chef shares techniques to whip up the dough.

Then she’ll demonstrate how to shape croissants and tips on baking them up perfectly, so they look as good as the ones in those bakery cases! Throughout class she’ll explore essential culinary skills that you can apply to your future baking endeavors.
