Making risotto may sound intimidating, but Chef will take all the mystery out of it in this class. After a salad first course, you'll learn the steps to creating a quality risotto, and how turn it into something fantastic, a Rich Wild Mushroom & Bacon Risotto! Because we like to have options, you'll also make a Fresh Herb & Parmesan Risotto with Peas. The Chef will also demonstrate a Dessert Risotto with Vanilla and Orange.
This class is easily made vegetarian by omitting the bacon and swapping chicken stock for vegetable stock, just let us know ahead of time if you'd prefer this and we can prepare some extra mushrooms for you!
