Italian food is diverse from region to region, but the common thread is always simplicity and fresh seasonal ingredients - the hallmark of the dishes in this menu. Learn to prepare Italian dishes with the freshest spring produce and delicious make crispy lamb meatballs. I spent some time in Italy working with Slow Food and took a cooking class from several Italian chefs titled “Cooking Without Waste.” Every one of those chefs talked about making meatballs and spoke with pride about the meatball dish in their restaurant. This changed my thinking about meatballs, and I am excited to share these small bites of flavor with you.

Antipasto: Burrata with Dandelion Green Pesto with dried fruit and toasted pistachios served with fett'unta (grilled ciabatta bread with garlic and olive oil)
