MON – THUR 10:00AM – 2:00PM
JUNE 15 – 18, 2020
Instructor: Lisa Lavagetto
Kids! Join us for a trip around the culinary world. Learn knife skills including usage, care and safety when cutting as well as different measuring tools and proper equipment identification. We’ll also focus on safety and sanitation in the kitchen. Together, we’ll explore foods from around the world — from Italy (handmade pasta, sauces and focaccia); Mexico (Kings Ranch casserole, chicken quesadillas, and tres leches cake); and Asia (Chinese fried rice, pork buns and potstickers); and finally, American classics (homemade mac and cheese with bacon, meatloaf cupcakes and lemonade bars).
Tuition covers culinary lessons, scrumptious daily lunches for students and hands-on instruction from professional chefs.
The deadline for enrolling in this class is Wednesday, June 10; the class may be cancelled if we do not reach minimum enrollment by this time.
After marrying into a first generation Italian family, Lisa Lavagetto began her love affair with Italian cuisine at the hands of her husband’s grandmother who was a resort chef on Lake Como in Italy. After refining her craft in the family restaurants Lisa came to Ramekins in 1998. Over the years, she has had the opportunity to work with such luminaries as Mark Miller, Ming Tsai, Rick Bayless, Jacques Pepin, and Paula Wolfert. While working at Ramekins Culinary School, Lisa won five gold medals and the Best in Show at the Professional Food competition at the Sonoma Harvest Fair. In her position, most recently she was on an episode of Guy’s Grocery Games on the Food Network.
