Your Cooking Class
Ciao and welcome to your Italian getaway! From the rolling Tuscan hills to the coastal towns, there is so much to love about Italy. It is filled with some of the best museums, ancient ruins, and so much culture, as well as incredible food and people!
In your Cooking Class below, Chef Pat will teach you how to make heart-shaped truffle ravioli from scratch. These delicious raviolis are filled with an amazing truffle, potatoes, and parmesan cheese mixture. We hope you enjoy making these as much as we do!
Meet your Chef: Patrizia Steccato
Pat was born and raised in Florence, and has been cooking for as long as she can remember. As a child, she recalls jumping from one table to the next, asking to help her mother, aunts, grandparents, and whomever was cooking at the moment.
Pat loves cooking because it makes people happy, and for her, feeding people is a way to express her love to all her guests. She loves introducing travelers to her favorite dishes, and sharing the story behind each recipe and the secrets to get a perfect Italian preparation.
