We recently entertained an awesome group of travel agents at an event that we hosted for Oceania Cruise Lines.  In addition to their planned meeting we provided a wonderful food demonstration, a tremendous amount of antipasti, and delicious Italian wine and Prosecco was served!  We are grateful to share the wonderful words of our client below:

Good morning to you Sally and Gina and Balbina! 

I'm going to start with telling you that the travel agents were over the moon with the experience that you presented to them in your beautiful and warm home. Each said that they never attended a travel industry presentation like that and it could not have happened without you working so closely with us. I am ever-grateful and I hope that it brings both of our "organizations" new friendships and loyalty. 

All of the foods were delicious and beautifully presented. Each of you has such a kind and loving spirit and it shows in your foods. Please thank Balbina for making the delightful sweet treats and please remind me of what they are called otherwise I'm going to be remembering them as "little pizzas!" I'm giggling as I say that. They reminded me of what my mom used to make and called, "Swedish cakes."

Looking forward to seeing you again both socially and professionally!





Corporate Cooking Classes at Cucina Casalinga
Ladies and gentlemen
, roll up your sleeves, loosen your ties, take off your suit jackets and don the Cucina Casalinga aprons.  Sally Maraventano, owner of Cucina Casalinga, chef and cookbook author will instruct and guide your group of up to 20 people in the hands-on cooking techniques of Italian cuisine from basic sauces to pizza to risotto.  Cook and learn together with your colleagues and team leaders while creating a fabulous lunch or dinner to be shared after the lesson. Experience an off-premise outing with the relaxing pace and comfort of a pastoral setting and Italian home cooking lessons to "boot"!

After the class, feast on the fruits of your labor.  During mild weather enjoy the aroma of pizza baking in the outdoor wood-burning oven on the patio overlooking the formal Italian herb garden. During winter months dine around the family style table intimately tucked between the kitchen and the comforting, crackling fireplace. Guests enjoy the conversation and interact in a relaxed setting.
