About the class

Join us on January 13 for a fun and delicious culinary class where you will learn how to make Italian tapas, or small appetizers, that are perfect for sharing with friends and family. You will discover the flavors and techniques of Italian cuisine as you prepare three mouthwatering dishes:

  • Mini pizza: Learn how to make your own pizza dough from scratch and top it with fresh tomato sauce, cheese, and your choice of ingredients. You will bake your mini pizzas in the oven until they are golden and bubbly.
  • Farro salad with roasted winter vegetables: Enjoy a hearty and healthy salad made with farro, an ancient grain that is high in protein and fiber.
  • Hazelnut biscotti: Indulge in a sweet treat that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. You will learn how to make biscotti, or twice-baked cookies, flavored with hazelnuts and chocolate.

This class is suitable for all skill levels and includes all the ingredients and equipment you need. You will also get to taste your creations and take home the recipes. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to make Italian tapas that will impress your guests and satisfy your cravings. Book your spot today!

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
