Newly relocated to Kingston from P'town where she was Exec Chef at Central House, Chef Michele explores her Greek and Italian heritage through the universal lens of the meatball. In this hand-on class, we'll be grinding our own pork and beef to make Mama's Italian Meatballs with marinara before we hop over to the isles for some Greek Cocktail Lamb Meatballs with tzatziki. Michele's energy is boisterous and fun, and this session promises to be just as fun as her balls are delicious: )
