Every Friday night beginning January 11, 2019, NewBo City Market we’ll be hosting a different fun and instructional class from 6-8 pm. Each class will be a different course matter, instructor and separately ticketed event. Stay tuned for updates on the upcoming classes!

First up – on Friday, January 11th it’s Let’s Get Saucy featuring Zaza’s Pastas! Spend an evening with Zaza’s Pastas owner, Julie Parisi, who will teach you 4 traditional pasta sauces. We’ll start with a robust sugo di Pomodoro (tomato sauce) which features a sumptuous blend of whole peeled plum tomatoes, garlic sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, and fresh basil leaves. This sugo will be the basis of our next sauce; Bolognese sauce. Bolognese sauce starts with a soffrito of sautéed carrots, onions, and celery. Next, we add ground pork and beef and then deglaze with red wine. No classic sauce class would be complete without Alfredo sauce! Julie will teach you how to create this creamy, cheesy concoction and pair it with her handmade fettuccine. We’ll finish with a vibrant and lively pesto sauce made with fresh basil, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. Samples of each dish will be provided along with recipes for you to take home, master, and impress your friends with at your next dinner party!

This event is part of the NewBo City Market Friday Night Classes series. These varied classes offer new experiences and ways to learn/create while having a blast. Materials are always provided with registration and include discounts and offers from Market Shopkeepers for dinner and drinks. Sign up via the Eventbrite link!
