Raffetto's Palate: Cooking Classes

Now offered on the 2nd & 4th Fridays of every month! A new menu will be featured for each class. Participants will learn how the ingredients work together to make delightfully delicious dishes. Cooking will happen in small teams and afterward, it's time to taste! Bring your favorite wine or brew to sip during the tasting and enjoy your growing confidence in cooking. Don't forget containers to take home leftovers.
