Judging from the smile on his face alone, it seems clear there’s nothing Al Tiramisu chef Luigi Diotaiuti would rather be doing than feeding people fine Italian cuisine. That positive energy—along with his refined menu of Italian favorites—has drawn luminaries such as Harrison Ford, Hilary Clinton, George Clooney, and Magic Johnson to Al Tiramisu’s tables. But you don’t have to be famous to eat here. Chef Luigi delights in serving each of his patrons, happily unveiling plates of steaming swordfish, duck breast, and fresh cooked linguine and clams––when he isn’t busy singing in his charming Italian accent, that is. In spite of his culinary achievements, Chef Luigi continues to learn. He regularly travels to Tuscany to study at the Istituto Etoile and the Ritz Escoffier in Paris. He’s made the most of that extracurricular effort, having become a certified Sommelier from the Association of Italian Sommeliers. And to spread the joy he has found in cooking and serving food, he also shares his cooking insights with students in classes that leave them with a comprehensive understanding of the cuisine of all 20 regions of Italy, as well as a map covered with tomato paste.

Though his family hails from Italy, Chef Alfio Celia takes his cues from the French when it comes to the art of cooking. After learning the basics among French chefs, Chef Alfio sharpened his knives at various restaurants around DC before establishing a culinary consulting firm, Bella Companies. There, the chef learned how to help businesses thrive from the inside out by working with hotels, restaurants, and cafés to develop menus, provide start-up management assistance, and train new staff members. When he’s not advising clients on the finer points of the food-service industry, Chef Alfio can be found in the Bella Companies kitchen, where he helps at-home chefs thrive with his cooking classes. These sessions are open to home chefs of all experience levels. Chef Alfio provides his students with insider culinary tips, such as how whip up a large brunch feast capable of feeding the 25 or more out-of-state relatives who decided to "just drop by" your place for the weekend.

BarSphere Agency can transform any room into a lively, bustling bar, complete with mixologists clad in black button-downs and silk ties. Those mixologists transport their own portable bars and barware to the client's venue, then set to work pouring international beers, wines, and spirits and classic cocktails such as the mint-muddled mojito. Whether customers choose a pre-set menu or request custom drinks, the possibilities are virtually endless, since BarSphere Agency's owner also runs Victor’s Liquor store and can draw on the shop's vast inventory.

BarSphere Agency also operates a bartender-training school in which libations and learning go hand-in-hand. During training sessions, students learn to mix, muddle, and pour a range of drinks while simultaneously keeping events running smoothly. After completing the training, students receive a certification that enhances job prospects and allows them to demand that family members address them reverentially as "Bartender."

During classes, needlers of all knitting levels gain the skills needed to create their own wearable art. Specialty sessions, such as Knitting for Lefties, Parent and Child Knitting, and Knitting Flowers, add a twist to the basics, while travel knitting opportunities whisk students to knit-friendly destinations such as New York City, Iceland, and France where they delve into local customs such as knitting sweaters for the Eiffel Tower.
