Description

Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking Class: Grains of Italia

Presented by The Trustees

No one does grains quite like the Italians. We're traveling back hundreds and even thousands of years to explore traditional preparations of the most ancient grains to understand how these recipes are still some of our favorites today.

Join Chef Juli - an unabashed carb-lover - for this internationally-inspired and locally-sourced cooking class. All of the grains present at this class will be sourced from New England granaries, from Massachusetts to Maine! Supplimental ingredients will be sourced straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.

This class will emphasize classic recipes Chef Juli learned while teaching farm-to-table cooking classes in Italy's capital city for four years (and can tell you a story or two!). Her recipes will awaken your senses and introduce you to new options for flavorful meals at home.

In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

This menu can be made vegetarian, but not gluten-free or vegan. Please contact kitcheninfo@thetrustees.org to let us know if you need a vegetarian option or to inquire about other allergies.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

Cost is $60 for Trustees member and $75 for Non-Trustees Members. Members must bring their current member card and number. Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN.
