Couples Class Added On Feb. 12!

We have added a couples class on Fri. Feb 12th.  And it’s Valentine’s weekend no less!  As often happens, our Couples Classes at The Culinary Center of Kansas City fill quickly. But, as a subscriber to the CCKC Kitchen Talk Blog, you’re among the first to know when we add sought-after classes!  So bring your favorite “smoochy smoochy” to a fun and educational  couples night class!   Click here to learn more about the Date Night in the Pizza Kitchen class on Friday, February 12.  Hurry ’cause it won’t last long!

Couples Pizza ClassOne of our Flavorful Weekend Night classes, here’s what to expect from our hands-on Couples Cook! Date Night in the Pizza Kitchen class, instructed by Italian instructor and passionate food Daniela Abel:

Bring your kitchen buddy and put your ‘scratch cooking’ hat on, and learn to make homemade pizza using Daniela Abel’s secret flour that makes the best pizza dough texture ever. We’ll have some perfect accompaniments to pizza as well, as you graze your way through the evening. Sprinkled into the evening, along with some Parmagiano Reggiano, will be a little fun Italian folklore as Daniela teaches you about various pizza styles such as Margherita, Beach Potato Pizza (pizza eaten on the Italian beach), and Sauceless Pizza with Mushrooms and Truffle Oil.

Come for the pizza, stay for the fun.  And, oh yes, we’ll have wine too!


Couples Class Added: Tuscan Christmas for Two

You asked for it!  You got it!  We have added a second couples’ cooking class in our Flavorful Weekend Nights category on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015 – Couples Cook: Tuscan Christmas for Two.

Tuscan Couples Cooking ClassRegister today for you and your special someone (or get a group of lovey-dovey couples together) to join us as we transport you for a romantic Christmas dinner in Tuscany, through the power of beautiful Italian food.   But hurry…these gems sell out quickly.

The menu for the evening will begin with one of Chef’s favorite Tuscan appetizers.  Then you’ll learn to make a  Tuscan Caprese Salad the right way,  followed by a course of Lemon Tagliatelle with olive oil, pine nuts and parmesan reggiano (one of our favorite dishes!). Next iyou’ll learn Tuscan-Style Steak, grilled, sliced and served with a shower of balsamic, olive oil and fresh herbs. We’ll finish with a classic Italian dessert of Tiramisu.

You’ll don an apron and get hands-on as you learn to make the Tuscan delicacies. Then enjoy dinner and wine with your honey and dream of rolling hillsides, long wooden tables under the cypress trees ….and love Italian style!  

The class, taught by instructor Daniela Abel, is on Saturday, Dec. 5, 6:30-9:00 p.m.  – To reserve your seats today, click here.
