Here’s your chance to perfect your technique at making some if Italy’s most famous pasta sauces, while spending a fun and relaxing evening with everybody’s favourite host, chef Massimo Bruno!

In this hands-on, interactive class, Massimo will guide the class through the process of making these 5 classics:

  1. Alla carbonara – the classic Roman dish, made egg yolk, guanciale and aged cheese
  2. Alla puttanesca – a staple neapolitan dish made with tomato, olives, capers, anchovy and peperoncino
  3. Ragù alla bolognese – often imitated, but rarely according to the original recipe; Massimo will show you how it’s done in Emilia Romagna
  4. Rapini – pasta con rapini is the most common dish from Puglia, Massimo’s home region. He will share the secrets to making such a simple dish taste so good!

During the class, Massimo will share many practical tips, including:

  • What types of pasta pair best with these sauces
  • How (and where) to choose the best ingredients
  • Hacks and substitutions to suit your palate and budget

Massimo will make some focaccia to snack on during the meal and we’ll sit down for a meal at the end of the class. You’ll also take home a few jars of sauce to enjoy at home.

WINE / CORKAGE – a selection of Italian wine will be available for purchase. If you would like to bring your own wine there is $15 corkage fee.
