ABOUT THIS EVENT
Food & DrinkNote: This is a multi-session event series. By purchasing the event package, you acknowledge that you can attend all event dates included below.
This 5-session class, organized in partnership with ItalCultura, the official language center at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, will introduce students to the language and cuisine of Italy by focusing on a different Italian region each week. The first hour of each session will be taught by an ItalCultura language instructor, who will provide an introduction to the culinary history and culture of that region. During the second hour, students will enjoy a demonstration, taught by the chef of Eataly’s cooking school, on how to prepare a classic, regional Italian dish from start to finish. Students will enjoy the finished dish paired with a wine chosen by our beverage expert.
This session will focus on the regions of Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria and Sicilia.
This course is aimed at beginner-level Italian speakers who intend to travel to Italy. Efficient communication and idiomatic knowledge of everyday Italian will be a primary objective.
This course takes place Wednesdays, 11am-1pm, from May 3rd through May 31st and has a capacity of 10 students.

9. YOUR TRUST IS EARNED EVERY DAY.
In all ways, we promise to be scrupulously honest. We'll never encourage you to buy more than you need or spend more than you can afford.
10. THE END GOAL.
Our goal is to have you as our customer for a lifetime. The easiest means to that end is to offer the best food and drink, as well as the best environment in which to discover and expand your tastes.
On that note, we look forward to seeing you again very soon!
