What you'll learn in this italian cooking class:

Warmer days are coming, and we’re ready. To kick off the season of sun, we’re hosting weekly hands-on arancini classes at our tasting lab!

The epitome of southern Italian street food, these small risotto balls are stuffed with mozzarella and peas, dredged in breadcrumbs, and deep fried. The resulting arancini — named for the "little oranges" that they resemble — explode with each crunchy, cheese-filled bite. In this class, our chef will teach you how to make a arancini ball, bread it and fry it! After you have made your arancini you will be able to enjoy them alongside a glass of Prosecco!

If anyone under the age of 21 attends, we serve artisanal Italian sodas in lieu of wine or beer. Please notify us in advance for any dietary restrictions. If we are not notified ahead of time of any special needs, we may not be able to accommodate them. All guests planning to consume alcohol must be able to produce valid government - issued identification to prove they are 21 or older.

Hands-On Arancini
Reviewed by Humaira P. on 9/4/2019
When I signed up for this class, I was hoping to learn how to make Arancini from scratch. Learn how to make risottos for Arancini which is a important part of making it. Not How to Roll them... Everything was premade. I was truly very disappointed. Didn't even get to fry them.. I made an extra trip to go to Downtown Eatly to learn but nothing!! I could have learned like this on YouTube, instead...sadly! The instructor was nice...

Internet said it was an hour class. Was disappointed that the rice and filling were already prepared. All we had to do was roll it into a ball and bread it. I thought there would be more hands-on and learning. I am still interested in attending classes. Chef Josh was very good.

Awesome class, good good/wine! Only complaint is that the class location was listed as la scuola, but is actually near the meat/seafood counter.
