What you'll learn in this italian cooking class:

Curious about the Italian culture? Join us for a monthly round table discussion focused on Italian-American and modern Italian culture through art, music, language, culture, and of course – great food and drink! 

In this class, join us for an evening of Italian food and fun stories from Eric Dregni, as he shares his book “You're Sending Me Where? Dispatches from Summer Camp.” During this lecture, Eric will share the experiences as a camp counselor at the Italian Concordia Language village. Eric’s storytelling reassures us that there’s still a place in the woods where, unplugged from devices and screens, children of all ages can connect with the natural world, and with each other all in Italian. (But don’t worry, amici — Eric will speak in English for this class!).

While you discuss and learn, enjoy a selection of dishes that showcase both modern Italian and Italian-American cuisine with Italian vino paired by our expert beverage team.
