LA SCUOLA DI EATALY – COOKING CLASS AT EATALY
Have you ever wanted to make fresh pasta but don’t know where to begin? This hands-on “Back to Basics” class will cover the fundamentals of your favorite Italian dish so you feel confident to try it at home.
We’ll set the tone for this unique experience with a welcome wine served with antipasto. The Scuola Chef will prepare the dish step-by-step in our open kitchen, while you follow along. To complete the experience, an Eataly sommelier will select a wine to complement the pasta dish you prepare. This cooking experience will improve your kitchen skills and give you the knowhow to impress family and friends.
Eataly, located at the Prudential Center, is a three-floor authentic Italian marketplace comprising a variety of restaurants, coffee bars, bakery, retail items, and a cooking school. The idea of Eataly was simple: to gather under one roof high-quality food at sustainable and reasonable prices for ALL, celebrate Italian biodiversity, and create an informal, natural, and simple place to eat, shop, and learn.
