What a treat.
Scrambling to escape the blistering June heat, I headed NoRTH into the cool.
Cool in every sense of the word. Executive Chef, Ryan Foxworth and GM, Frank Giacomini, surrounded by a flank of 20 (mostly blonds) presented a two-hour taste of Tuscany cooking demo.
Ryan paired locally sourced heirloom tomatoes, a heavenly buratta mozzarella and a few other magical ingredients in this delicious salad to start off the class. He followed with a Cavatelli pasta, spicy italian sausage, tomato, roasted garlic and braised greens. Check out the pic above...almost too pretty to eat. Considering that wasn't an option, I consumed most then asked for a box (everyone did) and waited for the finale, a smooth and joyfully fruitful panna cotta.
If you want to be delighted by Ryan and Frank's expertise, take this once-a-month class. Cost is $35 p/p includes wine pairings. You can go even if you're not blond.
