Learn to make garam masala from scratch, the primary spice blend we will use in our main course: a Mixed Vegetable curry with an awesome mango chutney even Major Grey would be proud of! A salad of organic greens cleans the palate and we cap the evening with lip-smacking golden-fried apples with an exotic maple syrup drizzle.

This is one of the most intriguing food classes in Boston you will ever find! Not only do you have the opportunity to learn directly from Chef Walker’s experiences and travels, you ... morewill literally learn how to take apart an entire animal!

While most butchering classes will only teach you how to obtain certain cuts of meat, in Chef Walker’s class, absolutely nothing goes to waste. You work with every part of the animal, from head to tail, learning the best preparation methods for each and every cut of meat you obtain.

The whole butchery not only promotes a greater respect for the animal you are utilizing, it encourages creativity, as you will be working with cuts of meat that may not be familiar to you! In this class, Chef Walker brings people together for incredible moments of education mixed with information and of course, fun.

Must Try!
This class is totally worth it. Even before we walked into the restaurant, Celio met us outside and made us feel welcomed. His energy is contagious. His class is super fun! Everything was delicious. The lesson is easy to follow. We highly recommend this class! We will definitely return.

I took my wife for her birthday last Friday as we were in Boston for Thanksgiving visiting her family. We took the Italian Food class and we had an absolute blast. Chef Celio was very entertaining and a great teacher! I am not a great cook by any means and I felt the skills I learned I will definitely be using in the future.Dinner afterwards was absolutely delicious as well! I am going to be giving ... more my sister-in-law and her husband a class as a gift for Christmas. Great couple's activity.One small note, it gets a bit chilly in the venue (although it is a very cool spot!), so bring a couple of layers.

It's incredible every time I meet Chef Celio Pereira, he's the best Chef I've ever seen. He's lessons are great, it makes cooking easy; I asked him how many classes it would take to learn how to cook at home a good meal, he said one class, I didn't believe at first but after the class I see I can do it, incredible food with the best guy in the market!!! Another time extremely satisfied!!Everyone should ... more take a class with this man! He's the best guy ever

We went to the vegetarian Italian class with Celio and it was a blast! We made four types of pasta, salad, and tiramisu--all while sipping wine! There were 6 people in our class so we all got to try our hand at the different techniques chef Celio taught us. Such a fun, intimate, and delicious experience!

I just had the pleasure of taking the Italian Brunch class with Chef Celio. You can't help but be moved by his incredible passion and love for cooking. I smiled the entire time. More importantly, as someone who doesn't regularly cook, he showed how simple it was to make gourmet Italian food at home--and gourmet it was. The food was as good as the best North End restaurant you'll find!

It was my first italian cooking class and it was so much fun! I learned how to make 3 different types of pasta (tortelloni, fettuccini, ravioli) and gnocchi. I had an awesome time with my friends! Even though dinner was not ready until 2 hours after, there were appetizers and lots of wine available! Definitely recommend to go with a group of friends!

I've always been wary of cooking classes because 70% of the time, I can't eat what we cook being a vegetarian. However, I found the Vegetarian Italian cooking class on the SelfUp website and was so excited to try it! Our class was in the South End (lots of parking available) and we were anxious to make some homemade Italian food. There were drinks (wine!) and small apps when we got there and then ... more we got started with the class. The instructor, Celio, made the pasta dough (you have to make a lot for a class of 15), but he showed us how to make it. The first pasta we made was a tortelloni (a larger tortellini) with a homemade ricotta filling. We got to roll and stuff them, which was cool! Then we put them to the side and got started on the next one which was linguini. Next we made a ricotta based gnocchi (found I like this much better than potato based ones). Finally, we did the beet spaghetti. Once we prepared all the pastas, we made our own individual tiramisu. This was our favorite part! We let them sit for an hour while we prepared homemade mozzarella from cheese curds to make a salad. Finally, we sat down for dinner (with our salads that we prepared) while Chef Celio put the pasta dishes together. The first dish was the tortelloni with a puttanesca sauce (SO GOOD!). The second was the ricotta based gnocchi with a brown butter sage sauce (I literally could not stop eating this). Next up was fettuccine alfredo, which was Josh's favorite. Our whole group was so full after these that we didn't cook the beet spaghetti and instead got to take bags of it home. The whole night was SO much fun. We think it's a great date night activity, but also great for team building. Loved every second and we didn't want it to end. AND we left full! Could not have been better. Thank you SelfUp and Chef Celio!
