Tuesday, March 30, 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM. Zoom Class: Love Letter to Calabria with Executive Chef Michael Elefante of Mama Louisa’s Italian Restaurant. Cost: $40.00 per household.
Fresh. Fiery. Delicious. That’s the cuisine from the southern tip of Italy’s boot. Honoring those flavor combinations, you’ll write a food love letter to the region with Executive Chef Michael Elefante in an evening dedicated to Calabria.
On the menu: Ricotta cheese you’ll make along with Chef, handmade and hand-cut fettuccine pasta, bacon chili jam starring the famous peppers from the Diamante region that are an integral part of the region’s cuisine, Brussels sprouts and mushrooms topped with hazelnut brittle, all coming together for an incredible dish. Molto bene!
