Join Katie in her Two Aprons Cookery kitchen in Lexington, Massachusetts for small group cooking classes that are fun, entertaining and informative. All levels of experience and all ages are welcome. Recipes are well-tested and the goal is for you to leave with the confidence to try these recipes at home. Hands-on participation is encouraged, though not required. You’ll not only learn how to prepare the recipes but gain equipment recommendations, shopping tips, make-ahead suggestions and kitchen hacks – even the most seasoned home chefs will learn something new. After about 2 ½ hours of instruction we’ll gather around Katie’s dining table to eat (and discuss!) all the dishes we’ve created.  Looking for a private class, whether in-person or virtual?  Check out my private event offerings.

In this class we’ll cook up a feast of Italian favorites starting with an appetizer of Artichoke Olive Crostini. Next is the main event – Homemade Potato Gnocchi with a Brown Butter Sage Sauce.

Accompanying that will be Asparagus with Leeks and Pancetta and we’ll end on a sweet note with Tiramisu. Hope to see you for this class in the Two Aprons cucina:)
