Italian Cooking Class and Dinner at Il Fornaio in Beverly Hills

(Sala Affresco Private Dining Room at Il Fornaio Beverly Hills. This is where the cooking class and the dinner will take place.)

Dear members,

While I was taking a lunch break and walking around in the area last October, I noticed a flyer of a cooking lesson at Il Fornaio on Beverly Dr, which is just a few blocks away from my office. I attended the cooking lesson and it was awesome. The Executive Chef Giuseppe Dimola was an excellent instructor as well and I learned a lot. What I really liked about him is the passion he has... in food and in teaching - I could clearly see his desire to share the knowledge and technique as he loves food and people. That's one of the signs of good cooking classes I believe. The food tasted delicious and I was stuffed! But most importantly I was motivated to try the recipes at home. That's another sign of exceptional cooking class, so this time I want to attend with you.

I met Tabitha, Banquet & Catering Manager at Il Fornaio Beverly Hills, at the cooking lesson and I'm very happy that we're now getting a discount. So.... if you'd like to attend, please RSVP with the prepayment of $55 by Paypal. The flyer below includes the menu and the RSVP instruction and the regular price is $64.09 per person ($49 plus tip and gratuity as it's a sit-down dinner after the cooking lesson served by Il Fornaio servers), but again if you pay through this group, it's discounted.) Looking forward to seeing you!
