January 13 - February 24 - Cooking Classes at Solare – Jan and Feb 2024 Schedule ~ Hands-on!

Ciao!! Here is our January and February 2024 Schedule.  Contact us to reserve your spots.

$95++ per student.   Includes the hands-on cooking class, wine, and a full lunch.   Limit 10 students per class.

We love doing Cooking Classes here at Solare.

  • Jan 13 – Seafood Italian-style
  • Jan 20 – Pasta from Scratch
  • Feb 3 – Pizza from Scratch!
  • Feb 17 – Traditional Gnocchi
  • Feb 24 – Lasagna with Maria

Our Cooking Classes offer a truly hands-on experience in Solare’s kitchen allowing each student to create Italian cuisine themselves to make at home.   Our classes are not just a “demonstration”.  They are very “hands on” and interactive. You are in the Solare Kitchen. 

When you see one you like, I recommend jumping on it pretty fast as class sizes are intentionally small.

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.   Italian wine is served for students interested in “cooking with wine”.

The Classes do sell out fast due to the limited size.

If you have any questions, please call us at 619-270-9670 or email us here.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

More Details:  Lasagna, one of the most celebrated of the Italian food staples, has a long and luxurious history. The term “lasagna” comes from the Greek word, “lasagnum,” meaning dish or bowl. The ancient Greeks used baking dishes of that name, which they eventually transferred to the Romans. The Romans, who ended up using the same style of dish, also developed a type of food which they used the term “lasagnum” for: it was served in said dish, with layers of a pasta-like food with other fillings in-between. With the extent of the Roman empire, this new “lasagnum” dish spread all across Europe, eventually reaching Britain, where it was published in the very first cookbook.

After many decades, the early form of lasagna once again surfaced. The early Italians changed the name from “lasagnum,” to “lasagna,” which is the current form. Over the years, the word “lasagna” began to change definitions; the word previously referred to the serving dish it was baked in, but began to simply mean the delicious pasta meal in the dish itself. In modern cooking terms, it now means layers of thin pasta, with meat, cheese, and tomato sauce squeezed in between. Lasagna sure has come a long way.
