Why take this online tour?

There may be no tradition more practiced worldwide than the gathering of family and friends for Sunday Dinner. This weekly ritual of "insieme" (together) was brought with the roots of Italy's heritage, across the water as Italians settled in America, in Australia, in Canada, and throughout the world in a new cross-cultural existence. Over the course of two hours, our beloved Italian chefs, Denyse and Roberto (from our wildly popular pizza and pasta classes in Rome) will be introducing and preparing alongside you a culinary exploration into the regional specialities of the Italian country - a grander version of Sunday Dinner with our Walks community.

Cooking together, we are better

Our Sunday Dinner in Italy class is perfect for those intermediate cooks, home chefs, and families who want to take their dishes to the next level.

Everyone in an Italian family has their role on Sunday. The matriarchal role of cook, children as the official pasta roller, grandfathers, and uncles as Master tasters. Me? I was the table setter. I carried large platters of fried eggplant, heaping bowls of pasta, and neatly aligned the utensils that would bring culinary Italy into our mouths. On this extension of our live online pasta and pizza classes, our Chefs Denyse and Roberto from their kitchen in Rome will prepare alongside you a full meal saturated in Italian culture and heritage.

Everyone in an Italian family has their role on Sunday. The matriarchal role of cook, children as the official pasta roller, grandfathers, and uncles as Master tasters. Me? I was the table setter. I carried large platters of fried eggplant, heaping bowls of pasta, and neatly aligned the utensils that would bring culinary Italy into our mouths. On this extension of our live online pasta and pizza classes, our Chefs Denyse and Roberto from their kitchen in Rome will prepare alongside you a full meal saturated in Italian culture and heritage.

Our chefs will feature varied culinary themes each class to highlight their particular heritage and background:

June 21 // Meatballs (Meat and/or Eggplant based) + Pasta

These dishes are traditionally Sicilian as is our chef Roberto who grew up with the smell of the meatballs simmering in the tomato sauce on Sunday morning. In the north of Italy they eat the meatballs as a second course, but in Sicily you find this treat on top of a glorious pasta dish.

June 28 // Eggplant Parmigiana + Bruschetta

Another Sicilian icon - the first dish Chef Roberto’s mamma cooks as soon as they visit her in Sicily. She starts frying at 8:00 am and their home smells “more amazing than a tight hug”, as Chef Denyse puts it. Bruschetta can be an entree or a meal. The simplicity of this recipe is made perfect by Sicilian tomatoes.

July 5 // Lasagna

Despite common belief, Italians don't eat this dish very often because it takes time. This is a dish that can be found from the north to the south with some variation in terms of ingredients (peas, prosciutto, egg, etc). This recipe needs four hands and someone you really love to cook with. It celebrates the enjoyment of cooking and spending time in the kitchen together.

July 12 // Carbonara Pasta + Tiramisù

Tiramisù is from Treviso, the town where Chef Deynse was born and raised. Sunday lunch in her family always ends with this foamy, creamy, and delicious sweet treat! “Carbonara is my favorite Roman sauce since I moved to Rome 16 year ago (the town that adopted me).” These two complimentary recipes represent perfectly the emergence of her past and present.

Menus for future dates will be announced by July 12th.

It worked! With the demonstrations and explanations given by the chefs, we were able to create an impressive lasagna.

Perfect instructions with great visuals. They are very patient with cooks that need extra help and the recipes are simple, inexpensive and easy to find. My husband and I eagerly await every class. Roberto and Denyse are perfect instructors with personality plus. Denyse has a beautiful smile and we like how Roberto likes to kid around. Fun with great recipes. They are awesome!
