Many of the most classic Italian dishes are made from the most humble ingredients, utilizing local and seasonal products because that’s what has always been readily available. Nothing is discarded or wasted and inventive ways were constantly developed to make use of all parts of the animal. It might be called “poor cooking,” but this style of cuisine is unexpectedly rich and hearty.

In this class, guests will:

  • Explore the history and traditions of la cucina povera as our chef prepares three rustic, delicious dishes (panzanella, pici all'etrusca, ribollita)
  • Discover ways to make the most of your pantry and produce
  • Observe our La Scuola Chef's step-by-step demonstration of three dishes 
  • Enjoy all three dishes paired with the selected wines
  • Make new friends

Class duration is approximate and may vary by 10-15 minutes. Seating is first-come, first-served. Please note, class includes demonstration and tasting and is not hands-on. All guests planning to consume alcohol must be able to produce valid government-issued identification to prove they are 19 or older
