Tie on your apron and join Chef Savio in his Sardinian kitchen. His knowledge and know-how will have you cooking like a local in no time.  Together, you will learn how to make lasagne, ravioli, tortellini and tagliatelle. Main courses include zuppa di pesce, an assortment of fish in a creamy tomato sauce along with burrida, fish in a broth with celery, carrot, onion, and lemon, and aragosta alla Catalana, with lobster, tomatoes, onions, oil, and lemon. Desserts are a must, think papassini, biscotti perfect for dipping into coffee, tiliccas, a honey and toasted almond sweet, and seada, a flaky, fried pastry puff stuffed with ricotta, orange zest and herbs, and drizzled with honey.  Following the cooking classes, everyone enjoys the foods that were prepared in the cooking class with Sardinian wine and liqueur.
