Italian Cooking Classes

cooking class fresh pastaOne of the most revealing aspects of a culture is its cuisine. What do the ingredients and recipes tell us about the land? The climate? The people and their habits? At SUF cooking classes, you can spend time getting to know not only Italian culinary traditions, but also your fellow classmates! SUF offers a series of 5-6 menus from different regions of Italy; most classes teach you two first courses, a second course and a dessert. The capolavoro of the class, however, is sitting around the table enjoying a scrumptious meal with new and old friends alike. Sign up in the Student Life Office.

Wine, Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Tasting

Choosing wine is like making friends; you get to know them, build a relationship and never take them for granted. You’ll understand how wine is made and you’ll learn how to use your senses to find the wine, or wines that are right for you.

Finding your olive oil takes a whole other approach and Pino will help you discover how. In addition he’ll tell you what makes Tuscan olive oil so special.

Lastly, learn how Balsamic Vinegar is made and why using a good quality Balsamic Vinegar can enhance every meal, including dessert!  There’s no expiration date on this treat. Find out how old delicious Balsamic vinegar can get.
The tasting is accompanied by Prosciutto, Salame Toscano, Parmigiano and more! Sign up in the Student Life Office.
