<a id="Solare-Ossobuco-Cooking-Class"></a>Cooking Class: Ossobuco and Risotto

September 15 - Cooking Class: Ossobuco and Risotto

For this class, you will be transported from San Diego to Lombardia, Italy, to learn how the perfect Ossobuco is made. The key to classic Ossobuco is exactly how the meat is braised, and that is one of many things you will learn from Chef Accursio. Lombardia is famous for their Ossobuco! And what does a wonderful plate of Ossobuco need? Risotto! Chef Accursio will also lead you to prepare the world’s best risotto where the rice is the perfect level of “creamy-ness” but the kernels are still whole and firm. This is great risotto – but it is not easy to make – unless you join this class! The fun starts at 10:30am at Solare with an Italian-style coffee of your choice and a pastry. Italian wine is served for students interested in “cooking with wine”. – Class size limited — $85/student that includes the class, wine, and lunch. Reserve today via email or call 619-270-9670
