Program Overview

Program Description:
Our goal is to emphasize the importance of Italian products, the seasonality of ingredients and the simplicity of our cuisine. Italian taste is simple; not an elaborate combination of exotic flavors. Through our program in Culinary Art we wish to impart a true sense of Italian taste and refinement, as well as our tradition and lore. Cooking is an art, and our goal is to shape and model artists in Italian Food. Food brings people together. A well-set table is a pleasure to see; the combination of ingredients is a joy to your taste buds, the smell of good food or wine cheers you up; the laughter of people sitting around a table is like good music.
