your cupboard that you have never taken out of the box? Come and learn how to cook the

way nonna (my mum) taught me. I can guarantee that you will have a hands-on experience.

There will be stories, laughs and eating. You can bring a friend or maybe a member or the

family. Children are welcome, they love to get their hands dirty. Each class offers one

savoury dish and one desert. All ingredients provided.

You bring: and apron, containers for any leftover food and bring a pasta machine if you have

one and would like to learn how to use it.
