HANDS ON/DEMO Join Francesca as she shows you how to make delicious dishes for the holiday season. She starts with a rack of lamb served Florentine style, coated with herbs and garlic and slow roasted. To accompany the lamb, try homemade ravioli filled with prosciutto and parmigiano cheese and topped with a homemade tomato sauce made with onions, red wine and fresh basil. Next up is black kale fried. And for dessert, a holiday sponge cake (panettone) filled with coffee and vanilla ice cream. Leave Francesca?s class with the recipes and tips you need to make these dishes for your upcoming holiday festivities. Scholarship recipients pay $39. Instructor: Francesca Giarraffa. 1 class.

Francesca Giarraffa began her cooking career as a young girl helping her mother and aunt prepare meals in her native Naples, Italy. Later as a young adult she worked in her aunt's restaurant in Italy. Francesca is married to a retired chef and lives in Ann Arbor where she runs a catering business and teaches cooking classes. Students enjoy her warm, open personality and her wealth of knowledge of traditional Italian cooking.
