The Art of Limoncello Making

Thursday Nov 14, 2013  5:30 pm

Let Chef Giuseppe, native of the Isle of Capri, share with you the art of creating authentic Limoncello from the Amalfi Coast of Italy. This tasty, lemon based liquor is a “digestivo”—an after-dinner drink that will help aid in digestion. Digestivi have been around for centuries all over Italy. The Caprese people use this slightly sweet, but very powerful digestivo, Limoncello, to celebrate the end of a great meal. Chef Giuseppe would love to take you step-by-step through this cherished tradition of his homeland in his fun-filled, hands-on class. Learn firsthand the traditional way to make Italian Limoncello, partake in piccoli morsi (small bites), and take home a bottle of Limoncello too! Don’t forget your favorite peeler! Salute!
