Taste of Italy Cooking Series

Vieni e mangia!

Come and eat Italian! The cuisine we all love. Heartland Farm will be hosting a series of three cooking classes with Italian food enthusiast, Natalie Fullerton, who recently returned from Sicily were she cooked with the Italians and studied the cuisine.

From basic pasta making in class one, to ravioli and stuffed ravioli in class two, we will finish with a celebratory Italian potluck meal and also harvest herbs and produce from the gardens to make hor d’oeuvres.

Come and join us for the full series or sign up for just one of the offered classes. We look forward to expanding our cooking expertise, making new friends, and celebrating joys of life with home-cooked Italian food! Go home with recipes, dough, and pasta made in each class.
