This class is for Adults only.

Picture this romantic dinner in your mind: The sun is setting, you’re outside of a quaint bistro in the rolling hills of Tuscany, a glass of wine in your hand, soft music is playing, the delicate smells of summer are tickling your senses through your face mask…okay! Wake up, you’re back in central Illinois! We can’t promise THAT romantic dinner at The Cookery, but we can come pretty close. We’ll have a dynamite menu with many classic staples, and some fun and education to boot. Our class will include dishes such as: Homemade Pappardelle Noodles in Lemon Sauce with Asparagus and Blistered Tomatoes, Zuppa Tuscana, Creamy Polenta with Sausage and Roasted Tomatoes, Blistered Tomatoes and Olives Salad, Gnocchi with Sage and Brown Butter, Crispy Arancini, Anchovy and Roasted Pepper Crostini with Goat Cheese, Stuffed Chicken Marsala (the best ever), Homemade Focaccia Bread, and a Ricotta Cheesecake with Honey and Lavender, with a seasonal wine to wash it all down! Though we can’t fly everyone to Tuscany, we can learn all about the amazing food there and master some classic Italian techniques. Grab any partner and come enjoy a night of indulgence!  Bring your wine! We’ll have some too  🙂

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are asking all students to wear a mask to class. We will be taking temperatures at the door, as well as providing hand sanitizer upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever. We welcome Phase 4 and we are now able to enjoy our meal under The Cookery roof!

Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. You can bring adult beverages if you’d like. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 7 days in advance to receive a full refund for this class.  There will be a processing fee to cancel your ticket per person no matter when you cancel. You can cancel by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to cancel at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund for any reason.  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else if you are not able to come but we cannot forward them to another class.
