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.
While menus for October & November still feature plenty of seasonal goodies, most will be coming from growers in Boise, other areas of the Northwest or California. Given our lack of a fall planting, we won't see too many goodies from our garden for some months to come. But there are plenty of killer menus for October & November, including lots of heartier comfort foods. November 2015 will feature our heaviest offering ever of 2 Gnocchi classes, along with one featuring Ravioli and another highlight fresh Tagliatelle pasta. Lots of opportunies for you to scrub up, put on an apron and be an active participant in the kitchen workings.
While September & October 2015 once again did not experience the
over-the-top mania surrounding a new cooking class schedule release,
we did eventually sell off most seats. Alittle bit more shepharding
and a couple extra e-mails whittled down the September classes to sell-outs,
while a few seats still remain for October 2015. So if you like to hit
the town solo or just want a night out on your own without your regular
partner, 3 opportunities can be yours during October. There is still
availability for 1 in our Thai cooking class on Saturday 10/3, a Middle
Eastern class on Wed. 10/7 and finally an Italian offering on Wed. 10/28.
If one of those dates might work for you, check out the October
The November 2015 line-up of cooking classes was released at 5pm on 10/1/15, which is a tad bit later than normal for a new schedule release, but might well indeed become the new norm. As has been true to form these last few months, we have not sold out classes almost immediately and have had to massage things a bit more. So instead of releasing a new monthly schedule about 6 weeks in advance, we are doing so more on the order of 1 month out.
So if you thought you were too late to grab a spot next month, not to worry. Take a look at what's on tap for our November 2015 classes. Once you find the class or classes that floats your boat, give me a shout and let me know whether you want just a single seat or a multitude of spots. To make a reservation for one of our classes, either give me a shout on my cell at 208-781-0852 or shoot me an e-mail request to email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: 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
And remember, the best way to get a leg up on booking a class for 2015 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.

On a side note........We have closed bookings for our 2016 Cortina d'Ampezzo ski trip. This year will only feature 1 week of ski trips, as we did not get enough bookings to warrant adding a 2nd week. 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.
