About the chef:
Born in Neviano, a small town in the “boot heel” of Southern Italy, chef-author and cultural provocateur Tiberio Simone is also an award-winning food artist. After a stint as an elite paratrooper in the Italian Special Forces, love brought him to Seattle where he joined the restaurant industry. In 1995, while pastry chef at the Four Seasons Hotel, Simone won a James Beard Award for one of his signature chocolate creations. Now the owner of La Figa Catering, Simone shares his love of food and sensuality by nourishing others with his culinary delights. Menu for the class:
