Michael ButtacavoliHow does a night indulging in the ultimate comfort food of home-cooked Italian sound? If you’re like me,Italian is my absolute favorite cuisine! It’s very comforting fare, enjoyed by many and often holds top-secret family recipes passed from generations globally.

This Tuesday, September 8, from 6 p.m.–9 p.m. the Epicurean Theatre welcomes special guest, Chef Michael Buttacavoli from Cena for a mouthwatering, three-course Italian meal.

During this class, Chef Michael will demonstrate how to make a few of Cena’s hottest dishes right in front of you in the Epicurean’s fully Viking equipped culinary classroom. The first course is a Shrimp and Scallop Scampi, paired with Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. Second course is Pasta Amatricana, served with Sean Minor Pinot Noir and the final course is the Pork Saltimbucca, paired with Joel Gott Cabernet. All delightful, elegant and delicious choices!
