Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us it is time to focus on the next holidays that are quickly approaching. I will be offering 2 holiday baking classes to make your holidays easier. If you like sweets and desserts these classes are for you. And if you love chocolate, I have one class that you are going to especially want to sign up for and bring a friend or two along too.

On Thur. Dec. 4 from 1:00-3:30 p.m at Edina Community Education I will be teaching a class that I call, CHOCOLATE AND CUPCAKE CELEBRATION WITH CARMELA'S CUCINA. We will be making Coconut Joys, Peanut Clusters, Nutella Ravioli,Chocolate Mousse Spoons, and Red Velvet Cupcakes.To register for this class contact Edina Community Education at or phone them at 952-848-3952.

And on Sat. Dec. 13 from 1-4:00 p.m. I will be teaching the art of Italian Dessert Making, or as they call it, DOLCI, ITALIAN DESSERTS at Cook's of Crocus Hill at 50th and France. Come and enjoy Tuscan Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce, Zuppa Inglese, Zeppole with an Almond Cream Filling, Torta Cioccolata and Crostata di Marmelata. Any of these delicious desserts will make you look like a pro for your festive holiday dinner or party. To register go to or phone them at 952-285-1903.

For all of my favorite desserts and recipes perhaps, a copy of my cookbook, Carmela's Cucina is just what you need or would like to give as a holiday gift. To purchase one go to my website at or to and they also can be purchased at Cook's of Crocus Hill and some Byerly's stores.

I hope to see you at a class or at a holiday event very soon.
