  • This class is the perfect place for young cooks, ages 7-11, with minimal experience and a taste for Italian cuisine! We will learn to make fresh pasta and handmade raviolis stuffed with ricotta cheese, and will end the class by baking off delicious ginger biscotti cookies. Both recipes highlight seasonal foods and fundamental cooking skills needed by any Italian home chef. All ingredients are locally sourced from sustainable farms. Eat like an Italian while never leaving the Pacific Northwest!
