Join us Saturday, December 6th for a special Feast of the Seven Fishes cooking class at Kitchen NYC in midtown Manhattan.
Afternoon class: 1-4pm
Evening class: 6-11pm
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. You'll learn just the right moment to remove pasta from the boiling water to finish it in your sauce so it absorbs tons more flavor. There's an easy secret to great risotto and no, it doesn't involve extra stirring. We'll also have some of secret pantry staples for you to play with that take a dish from delicious to moan-worthy.
During this 3-hour class and dinner we'll make:
- Spaghetti alle vongole
- Butter risotto with shaved bottarga
- Linguine Amalfitana
- A delicious stuffing that can be used with clams, mussels or shrimp
- Fresh bread from scratch for sopping up all the delicious sauces
You'll also enjoy:
- Olives and other snacking treats procured from classic Little Italy/Arthur Avenue shops
- Each student will have a chance to chop, cook, stir and serve. Once we're done, we'll sit down together for a family style meal
- Wine! Glorious white wine like Falanghina and Grego di Tufo from Southern Italy paired perfectly for our meal
You'll be amazed how much you'll learn when you're in the kitchen. Cookbooks are great, but there's nothing like learning exactly how the garlic smells when it's done vs. trying to guess if the written description matches what's in your pan.
Dress comfortably and bring an apron. In addition to a cooking class, a fantastic feast and a group of new friends, you'll go home with a packet of recipes so you can create this feast again and again for your own family.
Feast of the Seven Fishes cooking class is led by Feast on History Founder, Danielle Oteri. Christian Galliani will conduct a wine tasting of Irpinian wine paired for this feast.
