Enjoy La Bella Vita with a Traditional Italian Dinner

Friday, January 9th, 6 to 8 pm

Dining Room Anouk


Spaghetti? Lasagna? Cannolis?

Do you think you know what this meal will entail?

You are in for a surprise.

Although we best know Italian cuisine for its spaghetti and meatballs, many traditional dishes have nothing to do with this supposed staple.

Join The Language Learning Institute for a uniquely designed Italian dinner that will introduce you to lesser known traditional dishes. The dinner will also feature dishes that are typical of various regions of Italy.

Not only will you enjoy a delicious meal of traditional food, but you will leave with a better understanding of Italy’s regional culinary diversity.

Rachel Queenan will be your guide for the Italian Dinner, and is the Italian teacher at The Language Learning Institute. She has studied Italian through high school and college, in both the United States and Italy. Rachel has graduated from graduate school and is certified to teach Italian.

Anouk Booneman is a French teacher at The Language Learning Institute and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. She will be your host and chef for the evening.

The Italian Dinner will feature:

Crostini toscani con patè del fegato del pollo, Risotto alla Milanese, Pescespada alla palermitana, Castagnaccio, and espresso

What Our Students Are Saying

“This is my first experience with The Language Learning Institute. I have always wanted to learn to speak the Italian language. My grandparents on both sides are from Italy and I wish that my parents spoke the language to us but they wanted to make sure English was spoken all the time. I have only good things to say about the Institute. The instructors are all very knowledgeable in the Italian language and of the country. As a beginner, they make me feel very comfortable learning this beautiful language. I have enjoyed all of my classes and look forward to future classes with the Institute.”
