Aperitivo: the Italian Art of Entertaining

$85.00

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

In a country where the typical cocktail party is called for 7pm, being at least an hour late is a necessary condition for socializing and invitations have a beginning but never an end time, finger food often takes the place of dinner, in imaginative ways that draw from the tradition and trends of the country’s cooking scene . Take a trip with Viola through the hors d’oeuvre of Italy, from the simple to the elaborate, and learn how to entertain as artfully and effortlessly as the Italians do.

To Viola, a tart is a blank canvas to fill with the culinary imagination that runs through her veins. The fragrance of a crostata baking conjures her mother’s voice, and she is excited to share the secrets she learned from years of smelling, watching and eating Italy’s most beloved dessert.
