Journey of the Chili Pepper


Are you a heat-freak, chile head, pepper munchin’ endorphin addict?  Come join our new Chef and Culinary Instructor, Mike Weller, for this hands-on cooking class, followed by a feast from around the world, and a story over dinner.  The tale will follow the chiles from their New World homeland, around the globe to all the places the Portuguese traders brought them (with an assist from native birds!). We will not intentionally hurt anyone with the meal, but some forehead sweats and minor muscle twitches are pretty much guaranteed!

Flavors of Italy: Cooking with Ricotta


A hands-on cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer.

As we transition from our rainy winter and anticipate the full bloom of spring, spend an evening with Viola Buitoni, who will share her love for a Italian pantry staple, ricotta. Springtime is when ricotta is at its best, milkiest and most delicate. The queen of versatility, ricotta also shines on its own with sweet or savory dressings. The menu reflects Viola's love for improvisation and experimentation, in addition to a classic beloved Sicilian recipe: the cannoli.
