This 5-session class, organized in partnership with ItalCultura, the official language center at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, will introduce students to the language and cuisine of Italy by focusing on a different Italian region each week. The first hour and half of each session will be taught by an ItalCultura language instructor, who will provide an introduction to the culinary history and culture of that region. During the second hour, students will enjoy a demonstration, taught by the chef of Eataly’s cooking school, on how to prepare a classic, regional Italian dish from start to finish. Students will enjoy the finished dish paired with a wine chosen by our beverage expert. This session will focus on the regions of Trentino Alto-Adige, Liguria, Lazio, Campania and Sicilia. This course is aimed at beginner-level Italian speakers who intend to travel to Italy.

This course has a capacity of 16 students. Click this link to register directly from Eataly's website.
