Hello Friends,
Italian Inspired Class #2 is what’s next in my kitchen! I couldn’t fit all the amazing dishes I want to teach you in one class so I am offering another class with the most delicious dishes from Italy! Of course, they too, are perfect for the holidays and for feeding a crowd. I actually saved some of my favorite dishes for this class because it’ll be in December with the holidays right around the corner. That calls for some pretty special dishes and class!
Have you ever had Caponata? Let’s just say it’s one of the best appetizer/ side dishes ever! Whenever I serve it, it always is the favorite dish on the table. It goes amazing on bread, meat, seafood or chicken, a potato or just by itself. It’ll become a staple in your home! Now let’s talk about Roman Gnocchi… it’s nothing like the gnocchi you know and love and I have to tell you it’s WAY better and way easier to make…. win win! While at the cooking school, we were served roasted eggplant steaks with a house made tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese and I couldn’t get enough! And guess what? I’m not a big fan of eggplant! Yes… it really is that good! And lastly, my favorite gelato while in Italy was pistachio gelato… so of course I had to work on it to teach it to you! Yum!
On the menu this go around is: Roman Gnocchi with a Browned Butter Sage Sauce, Kale Salad with a Lemon Vinaigrette (no comment necessary… because you all know about my salads!), Roasted Eggplant with a Homemade Tomato Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese, Caponata and Pistachio Gelato. Delizioso!
My December classes are extra fun and special! I started a new tradition a couple of years ago and started to draw names of people in my class to gift them some of my favorite kitchen things. Yes.. that tradition will continue this year!
This class will be held on Thursday, December 5th at 5:30 pm.  Please email me at jennyleeevans@gmail.com if you’d like a spot in this class. The class spots are very  limited and are going fast so don’t delay contacting me if you’d like a spot!
 I first demonstrate how to make the dishes and then we feast! Yes, this is a cooking class plus feasting… no small samples here. You got to love that! So come hungry! The cost of each class is $80.00 per person. Let me know if you are interested and I will contact you with more information about the class and tentatively put your name on the reservation list. When I receive your check, I will reserve your spot (email me for my address – jennyleeevans@gmail.com). Or even better… pay with Venmo (@jenny-evans-9). My classes are filling up really fast so please let me know if you are interested before you pay to make sure there is an open spot. For cancellations, I require a “2 weeks notice before the class” notice for a refund or class credit. IF YOU FIND YOU CANNOT COME AFTER THE NON REFUNDABLE TIME, YOU ARE WELCOME TO FIND A REPLACEMENT FOR YOUR SPOT.
I get a lot of requests for private classes. I have taught gatherings for birthdays, couples classes, company parties or just someone that wanted to learn a past menu and got a group of friends together to learn. I love doing these party- like classes and talk about a good time! Please feel free to contact me anytime if you are interested in doing such a class. The cost for a private class is $1,494.00 for a class with a minimum of 18 people. I can accommodate more people for a an extra cost per person.
Anyone is invited to attend, so please feel free to forward this on to your friends, neighbors and family. I hope you can join me for another gathering of delicious food and a fun night!
Happy Cooking!
Jenny Evans
