Ciao!! Here is the Solare Cooking Class Schedule for May, June, and July:

Our Cooking Classes offer a truly hands-on experience in a commercial kitchen allowing each student to create Italian cuisine themselves to make at home. Our classes are not a “demonstration”.

The classes are held pretty much every other Saturday, and the fun typically starts at 10:30am at Solare (10am for some classes) with an Italian-style coffee of your choice and a pastry. Italian wine is served for students interested in “cooking with wine”.

The Classes do sell out fast due to the limited size. Please call 619-270-9670 or email us to make a reservation for a Class:
