Around the World

Italy

Italians have always appreciated both food and wine as a way of life, rather than as necessities. In this hands-on class, you will
prepare parmesan arancini and zucchini fritters followed by potato gnocchi in a pecorino roasted garlic cream sauce with veal
parmesan. We then finish the meal with a cappuccino tiramisu for dessert.

Spain

Spaniards often refer to their country as “Las Españas” or “The Spains” reflecting a diversity of languages, regions and peoples.
Spain’s cuisine reflects its geographic position, dividing Europe and Africa. We kick off our evening with a tapas selection of
chili seared prawns, sweet potato croquetas and chorizo stuffed mushroom caps. Our meal continues with Pollo al Ajillo, Patatas bravas and salsa verde. We can thank the Mediterranean province for dessert, as crema catalana rounds out the night in true Spanish style.

We will prepare buttermilk biscuits with seafood chowder, traditional poutine, and bacon wrapped beef filet mignon with maple baked beans.
