Cooking with Chef Titti
For many years now, Chef Titti has empowered an ever expanding
join us on a magical journey into the culinary world of Chef Tiziana.
Each month we offer a fantastic new itinerary for globe trotting via our
series of intimate, instructional Thai
& Italian cooking classes. We’ll unearth exotic flavors from various parts of the world and breakdown recipes into simple, easy to replicate menus. Our scheduled classes are typically offered on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings, in addition to a variety of private classes hosted each month. All of our classes or dinner events are held in our recently built company HQ located in Boise's North End. Each class offers you the opportunity to prepare new recipes and learn a plethora of cooking techiques, as well as share a full 3-5 course meal with friends new & old. Our Italian & Thai cooking classes, as well as any special classes for Middle Eastern, Mediterranean Melange or "Asian Fusion", cost $65.00 per person.
The thermometer is starting that precipitous drop down to freezing temps at night, so time to grab the last batch of green tomatoes and relegate them to off-vine ripening in the garage. Gardens are being pulled up and cleaned out. The colorful leaves swirling about and dropping to the ground are sucked up, shredded and put back to work as winter bedding for the garden. Ah, the cycle of life.
October 2015 closed out on a very busy and successful note. Got to catch up with quite a few of our clients, whom we see sporadically throughout the year, during their most recent private cooking class bookings. In addition to our scheduled classes over the next 2 months, we have quite a few private parties & holiday events in the hopper. All of the classes are beneficiaries of not only some great seasonl cooking, but hearty/comfort food menus. I must say, that while I thoroughly enjoy the lighter & fresher cooking with our garden's summer bounty, it's great to get back to some of these rib tickling recipes.
November 2015 will feature our heaviest offering ever of fresh pasta dishes, including 2 Gnocchi classes, another session featuring Ravioli and finally one other class that highlights fresh Tagliatelle pasta. And those opportunies to work in the kitchen alongside Tiziana were snapped up pretty quickly. As we head into the beginning of November, there is only 1 seat left for our Thai Cooking Class on Saturday November 14th. If this date might work for you, check out the November 2015 schedule of cooking classes.
As was the case with the release of both the October & November 2015 cooking class schedules, December also witnessed a continuance of the more mellow mode of selecting class dates. No more mania resulting in a sell out of all classes within 20-30 minutes. Now you've got time to digest the menu offerings, ponder a bit, inquire as to your friend's availability and then get back to us leisurely with your reservation request.
Still plenty of opportunities to secure a seat for a class in December 2015. So if you felt you were a bit tardy & highly unlikely to grab a spot next month, think again. We still have 2 or more seats available for six different classes on 12/2, 12/9, 12/16, 12/23, 12/27 & 12/30. Only 1 seat left for the Italian class on Fri. 12/11, but plenty in the other six classes. Take a look at the schedule for our December 2015 classes and see if one of these menus fits your bill. Should any of the available classes be of interest to you, give me a shout and let me know whether you want just a single seat or a multitude of spots. For reservations in one of our classes, you can contact Joel via cell at 208-781-0852 or shoot him an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Thai class offerings are on "hiatus"
until January 2016, when we'll offer at least one class of this phenomenal
Southeast Asian cuisine. We'll be looking to move away from cooking
in a wok and using a variety of other modes to cook this gastronomy
of Siam. All of our cooking classes, whether Italian, Thai, Middle Eastern,
Asian Fusion or Mediterranean, remain priced at the reasonable cost
of $65.00 per person. We raised our 2015 pricing by $5.00 per person
to help offset increased costs, which resulted from our desire to purchase
only the freshest seasonal ingredients from local producers
And remember, the best way to get a leg up on booking a class for 2016 is to make sure you are on our mailing list. You'll receive a preview of the upcoming class schedule & thus the best opportunity for booking a seat before the classes are released to the general public. To be added to our Fuel for the Soul mailing list, simply drop me a line at email@example.com.
On a side note........We have closed bookings for our 2016 Cortina d'Ampezzo ski trip. This year will only feature 1 week long ski trip, as we did not get enough bookings to warrant adding a 2nd trip during the last week of January 2016. Info for our 2017 Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italia Ski Trip will be released at the end of March 2016. If you aren't familiar with our ski trip offering, you should be! These intimate ski trips are limited to just 8 people and are led by our own Tiziana Lancedelli. You'll spend 6 days/nights in Cortina and base out of the Lancedelli family lodge, Duca d'Aosta. It's ski in-ski out location in the Dolomites (Italian Alps) is simply spectacular. If you were to ask the past attendees from the trips over the last four years, they'd tell you it's an event of a lifetime and not to be missed.
