Kathy will create a cooking class for your small private group. Classes can be held at her home in either Sugarloaf, ME or Newburyport, MA - or at your home. Travel is possible as well.
Each class is hands-on, and includes recipes, instruction, all ingredients, and a wonderful dinner for all to enjoy at the end of the evening! Perfect for groups of friends, a family special occasion celebration, or something a little different apres ski! All types of menus are available, with most of Kathy's recipes inspired by her bike and ski tours in Italy.
Gnocchi: we learn how to make different gnocchi, a specialty of Northeastern Italy. Gnocchi gratin, gnocchi with prosciutto, montasio cheese and poppy seeds, and a gnocchi stuffed with cheese and pan fried. We enjoy this along with a salad and a wonderful dessert
Risotto: Another classic dish of Northeastern Italy, which can be prepared so many different ways! Risotto with Smoked Salmon and Prosecco, and Risotto with Radicchio and Gorgonzola. Rounded out with a salad and dessert.
Private dinners are also available:
Sample menu: Subject to change, based on season. I used locally grown products whenever available, even when in Maine in the midst of winter!
Selection of Antipasti: Kathy's home smoked salmon, cheeses, meats, and a few surprises
Salad: Local greens with radicchio, prosciutto 'chips' and pine nuts
Main Course: Local beef, braised in red wine, served with creamy polenta and roasted local vegetables
Dessert: Ricotta cake with locally made ricotta, with honey roasted pears, almonds, and grappa mascarpone cream
