Italian Pastries-Let's Bake

  • Overview

    Join our family at the Italian American Cultural Center of Iowa for an afternoon of fun and cooking! Grab your apron (and a bottle of wine) and have fun in this hands-on cooking class making classic Italian pastries. We will be making Guanti, Love Knots and Baci di Dama.

    In Italy, Carnavale is celebrated in February and "chiacchiere", fried ribbons, are a favorite this time of year. These crispy sweet treats are also known as guanti (wandas). Let's make some! Sign up for the class on Feb 8th to make these and other sweets for or with your sweetheart.
