Cooking classes

Fall Session 2014 (September - December)


Some of the greatest Italian chefs in Los Angeles will bring their collective expertise to offer a series of cooking classes at the Italian Cultural Institute.


Everybody knows that good food and good wine go hand in hand!
When rightly paired, wine and food enhance each other’s flavors, and make the entire taste experience a more satisfying and enjoyable one.
Whether you are serving a simple meal, or entertaining with a multi-course dinner, knowing the nuances of wine pairing will serve you, and your guests, well.
Professional Sommelier and Master Taster Giammario Villa, and Chef Loredana Cecchinato from the famed Osteria Mamma in Los Angeles, join forces to bring you the best of both worlds!
Accompany us on 2 gastronomic journeys to tantalize your senses. A surprise gift will await you in the end!
This event will be held at the IIC kitchen & patio.
