Italian cooking is simple. If you're not a big fan of following directions, you like to drink a glass of wine while you cook, then Italian cooking is for you. It's not the precision that makes Italian food extraordinary, it's the ingredients and tiny details make all the difference. It's the love you pour into it. Inspired by Italian-American Christmas Eve, our Feast of the Seven Fishes cooking class gives you a chance to cook in an amazing commercial kitchen and learn the little loving touches that make a huge difference.
Explore an iconic neighborhood that still does things the old-fashioned way—with family-owned butcher shops, bakeries and pasta stores that have been open for generations.

Danielle Oteri who comes from a family of Arthur Avenue butchers will show you the neighborhood's culinary secrets while Christian Galliani shows you how to pair wine suited for your haul of Little Italy specialities.
