Baking Class: Carnevale Desserts!

February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Carnevale is one of the best loved – and decadent! – winter festivals in Italy!

All over the peninsula there are celebrations this time of year, as people brace for the looming austerity of the Lent season with lavish feasts filled with hearty meat dishes and sumptuous sweets.

In this hands-on class, hosted by the talented Anna Sottile, you’ll learn to make some of the most popular Carnevale sweets, and take a batch with you to enjoy at home with friends and family!

Recipes We’ll Make

Chiacchiere – probably the most famous dolce di carnevale is this crisp, airy convection known by different names in various regions of Italy (frappe, bugie, cenci, crostoli). Today we’ll make the traditional fried version, highly dusted with icing sugar.

Migliaccio – A delicate cake of Neapolitan origin, made with fresh ricotta, semolina, vanilla and lemon zest

Ravioli Dolci con ricotta – simple but delicious, these baked sweet ravioli are stuffed with a light ricotta filling

Snacks and Wine 

  • A light snack will be served during the class (buffet style)
  • Wine will be available for sale by the glass. Or you can bring your own – $15 corkage fee applies
