As we approach the end of our seventh year teaching Classic Italian Homecooking, our classes are selling out faster than ever! We have just SOLD OUT all classes scheduled until the end of our school year, May 2018. We are humbled by the popularity of our intimate, In-Person Classes. As we are a Home Based Business and we are a Government Inspected professional teaching kitchen, we are limited to a maximum of 12 persons in the facility, including staff.
We decided last Winter that we could no longer offer open-ended Gift Certificates as when recipients received them, there may not be any classes left to book. So, if you still have one, there is no expiry… but you will have to wait until next year. We will offer an exchange for any products for sale at the school as well. (cookbooks, olive oil etc.) It is, for this reason, this year you had the option of printing a Gift Certificate only after the class was booked. Thank you for your understanding…
In the meantime, our Food & Wine Tours, both domestic and International, have also gained in popularity. This past year saw 3 SOLD OUT International Tours and 3 SOLD OUT, 1 Day Niagara Tours. These small group, experiential tours, took me away from the classroom 40 days last year during our school year. Check out all the details on Tours 2018 here… http://www.italiancookingschoolguelph.com/tours/
So how do we try to meet the demand without compromising our small school feel? What if classes could still run when I am on Tour? We have turned away countless requests for Interactive dinner Parties/ Private Group Events as there simply are not enough days in the week… what if we gave YOU the tools to host your own? All of these questions have led us to our newest service… Introducing, Natalina’s Kitchen, Online Italian Cooking School!
It will be open 24/7. The price is the same regardless of how many people are in your kitchen cooking. It doesn’t matter what time zone you are in or what Hemisphere! You can play the instructional video every time you make the dish until you perfect it! Everything included in the In-Person classes is included here for a much lower price. The recipes, the ingredient selection information, the “Italian Mamma tips”, suggested 4-course menus and professionally produced instructional videos.
We are thrilled to be launching our first round of sessions Spring of 2018. 5 Sessions plus 1 Bonus Session are currently in production. The 5 sessions include 4-5 Classic Italian recipes each, along with 3-4 professionally produced instructional videos each. All the tips needed to purchase your ingredients, all the Italian Mamma tips and how to organize your own Interactive Dinner Party! The Bonus session includes 4 recipes and 1 instructional video.
As we are currently in production we are offering Pre-sales to you, our loyal clients and followers… until Dec. 23, 2017, you will get a FREE COOKBOOK shipped anywhere in Canada or the USA along with your choice of 2 Online Sessions for the same cost of 1 In-person class, $85 + HST.
