Cooking Classes at Al Forno
Saturdays from noon to 3pm...
Join Chef David Reynoso, Executive Sous Chef Phil Niosi and Pastry Chef Neil Temkin in our kitchen for a hands-on cooking class with locally harvested ingredients and a wide array of tantalizing recipes. These Saturday classes run from 12:00–2:00pm, followed by an hour-long luncheon of the day’s creations.
The cost is $65 per person; early sign-up is recommended as we intentionally keep the class size small.
Classes are paid for when they are booked. Cancellations will result in a refund in the form of a gift card (which can be used in the restaurant or towards another class). Cash refunds will not be given.
Please call Rob at (401) 273-9760 to reserve your spot now!
Al Forno becomes Del Horno SOLD OUT
We delve into executive chef David Reynoso’s Mexican heritage and cook up dishes from all over the culinarily complex country of Mexico! Steve Siravo of Poblano Farms will join us with his heirloom varieties of tomatoes and peppers.
Local Waters SOLD OUT
Dive into the bounty of the sea with us! Chris Lee of North Kingstown’s Sea Fresh fishery will join us with the most local and freshest seafood around. Monk fish, skate and calamari will abound as well as other great local oceanic delicacies. You’ll learn how to pick and prepare the best Poseidon has to offer.
Apples Apples Everywhere SOLD OUT
We bid farewell to autumn by cooking up a delicious tribute using some of the season’s signature goods: apples, squash and more. Will the grand dame of Johnston farming, Darlene Dame, join us? Only time will tell, but if we can’t guarantee her presence we can at least glory in the attendance of her family’s fantastic Courtlands, Red Delicious and Crispin apples along with some Hubbard and Acorn squashes. From soups to meat to desserts apples rule the day!
Christmas at Al Forno SOLD OUT
Get into the spirit of the season and join us as we cook up a festive holiday feast. From ravishing ravioli to scrumptious desserts the Italians know how to do Christmas right. Let us give you the gift of culinary knowledge. Learn the ins and out of some cheery Yuletide recipes and wow your friends and family (and Santa) when the time comes to cook the Big Meal.
