italian cooking class

last thursday mom and i went to Kitchen Essentials in downtown Cedar Falls to attend a cooking class. a chef i have known for years puts on these demonstration style classes many times a year. we have not been to one in so long i’m so glad we made the time to go again!

the menu included…

an antipasto plate (eggplant with feta, cured salami, fresh mozzarella with homemade pesto sauce, kalamata olives, and crusty bread with homemade sun-dried tomato butter)

a roasted beet salad with goat cheese and homemade salad dressing

stuffed campari tomatoes with parmesan cheese

vegetable lasagna

and panna cotta with toasted coconut and pineapple

everything was just so delicious! i could have snacked on the antipasto plate all night. the vegetable lasagna was surprisingly amazing. everything she made and explains is so simple. i am tempted to try the lasagna out on nick.

she has more classes coming up…

june 16th tapas cooking class which includes shrimp with chorizo, goat cheese stuffed mushrooms, farro salad with herbs, spanish style beans with tomato sauce, smashed potatoes with pesto, and antipasto tray and chocolate mousse

july 9th & august 6th farm to table which is held at the cedar falls farmers market. you will shop and prepare the meal together there!

classes range from $25 – $42 per person. it is such a fun time and you get to learn how to cook unique foods! she is the sweetest lady in the world too! i cannot wait to go back!
