Join Frankie for a trip to the island of Sicily where you will uncover the culinary secrets of a culture defined by a unique mix of Italian and Mediterranean influences. She will walk you through making two of Sicily’s most iconic dishes: classic Eggplant Caponata, and Arancini — savory fried risotto croquettes. As a bonus, we'll offer wine pairings for each dish!
About the instructor: Frankie grew up in San Francisco, where she delightfully uncovered all of the cultural cuisines the city has to offer. As a child, she and her mother created a shelter meal program; by age 13, she had assumed her first chef role leading a team in preparing meals for those in need. 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 has experience in menu consulting and restaurant renovation, working as a private chef and producing a monthly live painting competition called Seattle Art Battle.
