In Italy, cocktail parties are typically scheduled at 7pm, with most guests arriving a fashionable hour late. The array of hors d’ouvres on offer often end up taking the place of cena, or dinner (there’s even a word for this leisurely, festive meal: apericena). Instructor Viola Buitoni will be joining us for a cooking cocktail party featuring the traditional finger foods of Italy, from the simple to the elaborate. We’ll eat a dinner’s worth of appetizers (and drink aperitifs, of course!) while we learn how to cook, toast, and entertain as artfully and effortlessly as the Italians do.
