Paul Guglielmo will lead attendees through a guided cooking demonstration. He will be preparing meatballs, fresh pasta, and pasta sauce. Attendees may either prepare the items alongside of Paul, or if they prefer, they can watch the program and cook at a later time. Following the program, attendees will learn more about Paul's business and be able to ask him questions about it.   

Ingredient List:

Meatballs (to make enough for 1 dozen meatballs)
1/3 lb ground beef
1/3 lb ground pork
1/3 lb ground veal*
1 small onion
1 bulb of garlic
Small handful of fresh basil
Dried parsley
Dried oregano
1 tbsp olive oil
2 eggs
1.5 cups breadcrumbs

1 tsp salt

Pasta Sauce

Whole peeled plum tomatoes
1 medium onion

*will need an immersion blender during this process, if you don’t have one, that’s okay, there is a workaround where we can use a regular blender.  Or, if you love chunky sauce, no blending necessary
