Neapolitan Pizza and Wine Pairings
Authentic flavors from Naples Italy are possible at home using these approaches taught by Chef and Sommelier Bonnie McPike. In this hands-on class, Chef Bonnie will take you step-by-step through the process of dough making for maximum flavor development, learning the surprising impact that proper hand “stretching” has on the final product.
Classic Neapolitan flavors depend on the perfect sauce, which Chef Bonnie will share her recipe along with topping selections and combinations. However, learning the process of baking the pizza to get the proper crust in your home oven along with techniques of grilled pizza base will demystify pizza making at home with these amazingly flavorful and beautifully blistered pizzas.
Oh, of course Chef Bonnie will put on her Sommelier hat and share a selection of Italian wines that pair with your freshly hand-made pizzas of:
White Sauce Pizza with Prosciutto, Lemon, Arugula and Olive Oil
Braised Fennel, Fennel Italian Sausage, Guanciale and Provolone
