TASTE OF ITALY: MANICOTTI

Thursday, August 5, 6 – 8 p.m. | $81 | Instructor: Chef H

There are differing views among Italian pasta makers and food historians about the origins of cannelloni or manicotti. In Italy, this pasta is known as cannelloni, but in the United States, it goes by the name of manicotti, meaning sleeves. Both names refer to either dried pasta tubes or rolled-up sheets of fresh pasta that are stuffed and baked before serving. In this class, we will fill ours with a variety of three cheeses and a surprise herb. The course will start with participants making a salad and an Italian dressing and the meal will end with seasonal fruit. Working in pairs, students will make the filling and pipe the cheese mixture into the cooked pasta sleeves. Each student will be given a reusable piping bag for future use.

Suggested wine pairing:  A full-bodied chianti or merlot. Bring a bottle with you to enjoy!

Come early, fill your wine glass and walk around the gallery.

A plate of seared scallops

SCALLOPS WITH AVOCADO CREAM

Tuesday, Aug. 10, 6 – 8 p.m. | $81| Instructor: Chef H

What could be better than seared diver scallops over avocado cream? The delicate flavor of the scallop marries perfectly with the rich taste of fresh avocado. If you have ever eaten scallops that are tough, that means they have been over-cooked. In this workshop, you will learn how to sear fresh scallops to perfection! Scallops are not often tried at home, but after this workshop, you will have the confidence of an expert in preparing this meal. The course will start with a crunch salad. Making this salad will give new meaning to ramen noodles, cabbage slaw, and homemade dressing. The meal will conclude with a seasonal medley of fresh fruit and a honey dressing.
Every ingredient is available locally and easy to find, so you can easily use your newly acquired skills to make a meal that impresses!

Suggested wine pairing: a light white wine of your choice. Bring a bottle with you to enjoy!
