[Organizer's description:]Dinner in Rome
The food of Rome is as romantic as the Trevi fountain. In the streets you would see vendors selling huge Globe Artichokes, slices of ham and Prosciutto, and chickpea fritters. To cool you off from the Roman heat, a cool, creamy tiramisu would do the trick. And of course, pasta is king.
Dinner Party classes are more social in nature, while still learning how to cook and prepare awesome food. You get to work in groups of persons, allowing for plenty of time to cook, eat, drink, and meet new friends. The class is hands-on, with each cooking station getting to make every dish, unless the dessert is something requiring preparation ahead.
