Italian Cooking Class  – from $99 pp

Queenstown’s modern Italian restaurant Sasso is offering food lovers a chance to learn the art of Italian cooking with Executive Chef Sal Grant. Grant presents “Cucina di Italia” – a cooking workshop that allows you to discover the skills and joy behind cooking authentic Italian cuisine for your own private group.

Workshops take place in the historic stone cottage on Queenstown’s Church Street where Sasso (Italian for ‘stone’) is gloriously located. Grant has worked with New Zealand’s finest Italian chefs – including Antonio Crisci of Waiheke Island Poderi Crisci, and Crisci’s nephew Sergio Maglione, who owns Auckland’s Toto. He also has a vast amount of experience in cooking demonstrations and is known as a warm and engaging presenter.

At the cooking workshops your chef will demonstrate basic and new cooking techniques and discuss recipes.

Participants will help prepare the meal and then enjoy it with exactly the right wine in a lovely environment. Using organic ingredients from Central Otago’s finest growers, you’ll be shown how to cook a three-course Italian meal. There’ll be the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the state-of-the-art kitchen and the food will be served and matched with wine from Sasso’s extensive cellar. You will take home recipes of the prepared dishes and details of where the ingredients can be sourced.
