Italian Regional Cooking Classes
For those who love authentic Italian food, come to Montemaggiore and learn to make tasty regional specialties for yourself. Each class in the series will focus on a different region in Italy, from Sicily in the south to Liguria in the north.
The vivacious Chef Gloria DeMaria will be your guide during these hands-on classes. She travels to Italy each year gathering new ideas, cooking side-by-side with celebrated chefs as well as village homemakers who have become her friends, using recipes handed down generation after generation. At home in the Bay Area, she has been giving Italian cooking classes for many years—including running the Cook Sonoma school here in Healdsburg.
Not only will you enjoy Gloria's fun-loving personality, but you will learn how to turn simple Italian dishes into gourmet marvels that look and taste unforgettable. After the hands-on portion of the class, we will all sit down to eat our creations along with perfectly paired Montemaggiore wines. You'll go home inspired, with flavorful new recipes and an appreciation for Italian regional culture—perhaps even a few new Italian words!
Each class is held on Sunday, starting at 11am in Healdsburg and generally finishing up around 4pm. Space is limited to 12 people for each class so be sure to make your reservations early. In order to keep costs down, no discounts are given for Wine Club members.
