Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking Class: Flavors of Sicily

Presented by The Trustees

When it comes to food, some might say the Italians know best. Join us in The KITCHEN at The Boston Public Market for a seasonal, local twist on the traditional flavors of Sicilia, Italia. Chef Juli will share classic recipes she picked up while teaching farm-to-table cooking in Italy (and can tell you a story or two!). Juli's recipes will awaken your senses and introduce you to new and flavorful meals youll want to make again and again.

The majority of ingredients for the class will be straight from The Boston Public Market, proving you can buy local, eat local and still achieve international flavors.

Each course will be paired with a tasting of local wines from The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

In this combination demo and hands-on cooking class, Julie will demonstrate the tools and techniques of classic Italian recipes celebrating local spring ingredients. She will then lead the class through making a three course seasonal meal.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; youll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on whats available the day of the event.
  • During each class, youll learn 2 or 3 recipes, youll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and youll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.
