An Evening in Rome


Imagine sitting outside a Roman cafe enjoying the sights and smells. You’ll be creating that feeling with this menu in The Learning Kitchen.

Your first course will be Pizza ala Romana, which is White Pizza. Start by learning how to make the perfect pizza dough which is then drizzled with our gorgeous Premium Elements Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Rosemary – this is pizza the authentic Roman way. Then you‘ll make a dish you can find in every cafe in Rome and we'll teach you the secret behind Pasta Cacio e Pepe, which is Spaghetti with plenty of Pecorino and Black Pepper, along with that delish Olive Oil. Its simplicity is what makes it perfect. Your Pasta course will be accompanied with a Sautéed Chicken Breast with White Wine Sauce, Spinach, Garlic and Fresh Herbs.

Cook at your own cooktop; learn from a professional chef; eat and repeat at home!

Chef Instructor: James Hanser
Chef James grew up in rural northwest Ohio, moved to Cincy in 1998 and started working in the restaurant industry.  He fell in love with the craft.  Mostly self-taught, he has honed his skills over the years working for nearly every restaurant group in town... Jeff Ruby's Steakhouses, Boca Restaurant Group, Orchids at Netherland Plaza, Whole Foods Market, Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, and many independently owned restaurants along the way.  In 2018, James started his own company called "Have Knives. Will Travel." as a personal chef, caterer, and in home instructor.  He loves all types of food, but he is totally obsessed with braising, curing, and smoking meats and pickling. Inspired by his mother, a lifelong teacher, he began teaching at The Learning Kitchen and is loving every minute of it!
