Learn how to make some of Italy's most iconic desserts, Tiramisu and Zeppole, in a private virtual cooking class with a chef, live from Italy

La Dolci Vita with this sweet class!  Italian desserts are nearly impossible to avoid while in Italy and for good reason - they're delicious! In this fun cooking class, you'll learn how to make two of Italy's most iconic desserts.  First, master choux pastry. This simple pastry is the base of many dishes from French Profiteroles to savory Gougéres. In this class, you will learn the basics of this pastry and turn it into the beloved Zeppole San Giuseppe. These Italian cream filled pastries are synonymous with the Feast of St. Joseph. Every March 19, Italians celebrate this holiday (also known as Italian Father's Day) with these beautiful treats. Found throughout the country, Zeppole San Giuseppe are given to fathers to show their love.  


But not to be missed is Tiramisu. Relatively new in the Italian dessert scene, Tiramisu is believed to have been invented in the 1960's but exactly where and when is unclear. What we do know is this no-bake sweet treat has become one of the most popular at Italian restaurants throughout the world. Literally translating to "pick me up," that's exactly what happens, and during your cooking class you'll learn a bit more about the racy origins. Espresso-soaked ladyfingers elegantly layered in fluffy cream - this is truly the sweet life! 


In this Italian dessert class, your chef, video calling you live from Italy, will teach you how to make two traditional desserts perfect as the finishing touch to any wonderful meal.  You'll learn technique that will open a new world of dessert making at home. From Choux pastry to custard-making... you'll have a feast for anyone with a sweet tooth!
