About This Deal
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Start your experience in Don's downtown residence, nestled in the heart of Chicago. Get to know Chicago’s stunning architecture by relaxing on a lounge chair on the chic terrace while enjoying a scrumptious cheese, nuts and charcuterie tray. Following the appetizer, return to Don’s home to start your cooking class. Nothing says Chicago like deep-dish pizza! Don and Nancy are thrilled to share a cooking lesson on how to make the native Chicago pie – a fusion of immigrants’ ingredients representing the city’s rich history. Start by preparing a red wine vinaigrette salad of fresh seasonal vegetables. Next, Nancy and Don will show you the secrets to creating the city's famous pie! A fresh tomato sauce and the “butter crust” dough are both prepared ahead of time, but the creative license is all yours when it comes to building your pie. Choose from options such as roasted vegetables, pepperoni, sausage, artichokes, mushrooms, and banana peppers. And then there is what they have coined “The Big Reveal” of the pizzas! Suffice it to say, you are in for a treat.
