The best pastry recipes are known to many of us from our zia (aunt) or nonna (grandmother), and usually not in written form. There's nothing that makes your dinner guests smile more than when you serve an eye-catching dessert at the end of a home-cooked Italian meal.

In this class you will discover basics and techniques to make your own Cornetti, Pan di Spagna, Crema Pasticcera, Zuppa Inglese and other simple pastries. You will learn how easy it is to bake up batches of some favourite, classic Italian pastries that you can proudly share with your family and friends. It's sure to be a lot of delicious fun.

This is an HANDS-ON class, guided by Chef Michele Usci.
