Autumn in Italy is a time of harvest and celebration. “Sagre” are food festivals throughout the country that feature the most beloved ingredients of the season: grapes, truffles, chestnuts, olives and much more. Drawing on her Sicilian heritage, Frankie will take you on a voyage to several different regions, sharing traditional recipes that characterize the rich bounty of fall in Italy. You’ll learn to prepare Gnocchi Al Cucchiaio (pumpkin gnocchi) and Schiacciata All'uva (roasted grape focaccia). She’ll also share a bonus recipe of Pate di Funghi e Castagne (mushroom and chestnut pate).
Vegetarian with dairy, eggs and gluten.

Professionally, she has worked with eminent Seattle chefs, and was shortlisted in 2016 for Seattle Metropolitan Magazine's Next Hottest Chefs. In addition to teaching cooking classes, Frankie's experience includes menu consulting and restaurant renovation, working as a private chef and producing a monthly live painting competition called Seattle Art Battle.
