ABOUT THE ACTIVITY

Looking for that perfect Valentine’s date night idea? Join us for the Valentine’s special culinary event where we make some next-level Italian Dishes and craft cocktails!

Everyone loves to eat Italian food, but learning how to cook it from scratch is just as much fun! Who better to teach you and your friends the ins and outs of pasta than Chef Rudy Donalson, who has over 15 years of restaurant experience in the North End. In this fun-filled Selfup cooking class, located in the heart of downtown Boston, you’ll make a multicourse meal with Chef Rudy featuring Italian favorites:

  • Traditional¬†Italian salad, served in a crispy, salty Parmesan cheese basket
  • Hand-shaped bulbs of fresh, chewy¬†mozzarella cheese, stretched to perfection
  • Homemade pasta - including favorites like¬†ravioli, tortellini, and fettuccine¬†- all with delicious fillings and sauces so everyone is sure to make something they‚Äôll love
  • Authentic creamy mushroom¬†chicken¬†marsala
  • A delectable¬†tiramisu¬†(the real star of the show!) you‚Äôll create as you layer delicate ladyfinger cookies, soaked in dark espresso, with a sweet and creamy mascarpone cheese mixture.¬†

The classic Italian dessert will end an unforgettable night filled with laughter, smiles, and good food. You’ll leave full to bursting with great memories and the skills to make tiramisu at home whenever you’d like - use your new powers wisely!

The cocktails class is perfect for couples, cocktail enthusiasts, and home bartenders. The setting is relaxed and entertaining. Learn and enjoy as your instructors demonstrate and coach you on how to build, shake, stir and taste your creations. Your cocktails will be a hit the next time you’re shaking up drinks for yourself, your friends or family.   

Learn better techniques on how to prepare and store simple syrups, homemade bitters,  fresh citrus, and clear bar ice.

Chef Rudy Donalson was absolutely amazing. He was fun light hearted and made us feel as ease. His hands on teaching was great. Technics and explanations as to the - who - what and why of cooking was engaging. He made everyone feel like a pro and we enjoyed the experience with him tremendously. His sous chef was professional and patient. Even the owner popped in on us to make sure we got pics and were having a good time. Appetizers wines and music was festive. A really good time.
