Paula Licitra of the cooking journal Alimentum is at it again. Continuing in her popular series of Italian cooking classes taught out of her own home kitchen, Paulette has stacked her syllabus with a full schedule of new offerings and repeats of classes that have sold out in the past.

The menus look like they would fantastic just to have the opportunity to sit down at her table and share.
But the fact that you'll actually go home with the techniques and recipes to prepare them on your own at home is, well, Sunday gravy! (If you're a Goodfellas fan like I am, you should definitely click on that last link.)

Go to the Cucina Paradiso page on Facebook to see fun pictures from previous classes.
