About this experience

Join us for a fun, informative, hands-on baking class, where we’ll prepare two great seasonal dessert you can take home and enjoy with friends and family over the Easter holiday weekend! Tonight's class will be hosted by Federico Palazzetti, third generation Italian baker and owner of Freddy's Pies.  

The main dessert we'll be making is Italy's most iconic Easter dessert: La Pastiera, an ancient Neapolitan dish whose origins date back to city's Greek period.

La pastiera's fragrant filling, a delectable, semi-sweet blend of wheat berries, ricotta, egg, spices and (optional) candied fruit can take up to three days to prepare. But luckily there’s a way to shorten the process so we can still make it from scratch during this 2.5 hour class. And if you let it rest for a few days, allowing its flavours to fully integrate before enjoying with your Easter meal, your pastiera will taste even better!

And of course it wouldn't be Easter without chocolate - so while our pastiere are baking, we'll show you how to make a quick, delicious, no-bake dessert that's perfect for the season: Chocolate Salami!
