Geppetto’s Grilled Pizzeria’s 60-minute workshops introduce students to the art of simmering traditional Italian sauces, and serving multi-course gourmet meals. Cooking pairs begin by brewing a silken based—Mother—sauce from scratch, modifying the recipe slightly to create three additional specialty sauces and one potent love potion. Instructors work with each student team to reveal the possibilities of tomato chemistry and the ideal pairings for each creation. After seasoning concoctions to perfection, diners sit down to five courses of Geppetto’s signature recipes. Fresh mixed-greens salads and garlic breads inaugurate palates for pasta dishes slathered in students’ own epicurean artwork. Quartets select a bottle of wine from two available reds and two available whites, pairing according to their tastes and sauce’s flavor bouquet. After an elegant tiramisu dessert, patrons package their remaining creations to serve to family members or spread on the refrigerator for all to admire.
Geppetto's Grilled Pizzeria
The three co-owners of Geppetto's Grilled Pizzeria pair Italian classics and contemporary cuisine at their picturesque Federal Hill eatery, filling a menu with pasta dishes, buffalo wings, and both grilled and New York–style pizzas. Floor-to-ceiling french doors and wood accents imbue the space with Old-World charm, and a European-style courtyard beckons diners to sup al fresco during the summer months or freak January heat waves. Geppetto's group tours and luncheons steep customers in special prix fixe menus and demonstrations, and cooking classes impart students with the know-how to make their own morsels at dinner parties or when a rogue trillionaire kidnaps all the world's chefs to staff his continent-size kitchen.
