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

“Planning a visit to Quebec province, I decided to attend a set of adult evening classes given by Nancy Scarselletta at a local high school. Her enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the French language prompted me to sign up for further individual lessons. Over the last two years, I have come to appreciate Nancy’s vast experience –and infinite patience! — in teaching French with her unique emphasis on phonetics which she studied at the Sorbonne. In my opinion, French is not an easy language for English speakers given its unusual rules with multiple exceptions, potential liaisons, numerous irregular verbs, unfamiliar phonics, and plentiful idioms. I’ve appreciated Nancy’s approach and guidance throughout the course. And it’s been fun.”
