What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Two chefs enter. One chef reigns. Welcome to Eataly's La Scuola Kitchen, where we will feature two of our very own chefs, facing off against one another in a culinary battle decided by you, the guest! 

Guests will not only get to vote on the winner at the end of the face-off, but will also get to decide on one secret ingredient to be featured, unbeknownst to our two master chefs. Each chef will prepare two dishes to wow you, paired with wines selected by our beverage experts. 

Menu
  • 2 dishes prepared by each chef, to be determined
Wines
  • Wine pairings to be determined
