June 22 – Osso Bucco & Risotto Cooking Class
For this class, you will be transported form San Diego to Lombardia, Italy, to learn how the perfect Osso Buco is made. The key to classic Osso Buco is exactly how the meat is braised, and that is one of many things you will learn from Chef Accursio. Lombardia is famous for their Osso Buco! And what does a wonderful plate of Osso Buco need? Risotto! Chef Accursio will also lead you to prepare the world’s best risotto where the rice is the prefect level of “creamy-ness” but the kernels are still whole and firm. This is great risotto – but it is not easy to make – unless you join this class!
