This summer, North Scottsdale’s Sassi is heating things up with its Summer 2013 Food + Wine Series. Executive Chef Chris Nicosia hosts the second event Wednesday, July 17 starting at 6 p.m. This class will focus on the preparation of fruit-based dishes–perfect for summer entertaining.
Chef Nicosia will greet guests with a glass of wine prior to the demonstration of authentic Italian cooking. Participants will have the opportunity to learn recipes and enjoy a light, one-course meal featuring the food presented during the cooking demonstration. Guests will also have the opportunity to interact with Chef Nicosia and assist in the cooking demo.
As each dish is sampled, guests will enjoy two additional glasses of wine. The restaurant’s Wine Director Stephen Plunkett will teach the wine portion of the program. Featured wines will be available for purchase following each demonstration. The class is $49 per person, which includes service charges and sales tax.
