Date Night - Classic Italian Meal - January

Immerse yourselves in the flavors of Italy on a cold winter's night.





About this experience


Immerse yourselves in the flavors of Italy on a cold winter's night.  Our Chef Steph will guide you through pan searing a steak and creating bold Italian sauces to pair with your meal. As you explore the non-pasta side of Italian cuisine, you will meet and find that the cousin to gnocchi, gnudi uses ricotta cheese instead of potatoes for a light and fluffy dumpling-like dish. Add gnudi to your recipe repertoire for an easy yet bold side—especially when paired with cacio e pepe sauce. Learn to create an entire meal for you and your other half including a tasty, seasonal salad for a lovely eating experience that will transport you to Tuscany. Plus, finish on a sweet note with a decadent Chocolate Baci lava cake. Sealed with a kiss.
