Join Sally Maraventano and your group of 10 to 20 guests for a private culinary event at Cucina Casalinga. Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, retirement, bridal and baby showers, book clubs, or just a change of pace get-together with friends and family.

Sally will guide each guest in the preparation of homestyle Italian cuisine from antipasti to dolci in her magnificent state-of- the- art- kitchen. Cook, laugh and learn Sally's cooking techniques with the people that are special to you. Create a fabulous sit-down lunch or dinner experience to be shared after the lesson.

You will enjoy spring and summer classes dining on the patio near the Tuscan wood-burning pizza oven overlooking a formal Italian herb garden.  Take pleasure in lunch and dinner in the fall and winter months around her family-style table beside the crackling fireplace.
