Nancy’s class

Nancy Silverton’s pitch-perfect palate leads her on an endless quest to make the most delicious food possible. Join the celebrated chef, author, and restaurateur, on a tasty adventure inside her inspiring kitchens in Panicale, Italy, and Los Angeles, California. Learn a lifetime of knowledge as Nancy teaches over 40 signature dishes and techniques, including her Caesar and other salads, Chi Spacca Pepper Steak, roasted veggies, and Mom’s Apple Pie.

Class Sample
Nancy’s lesson plan

Chef Nancy Silverton gives us a delicious taste of her world, starting in her summer home in Umbria, Italy, before taking us into her home and restaurants in Los Angeles, California.

Transport Osteria Mozza's legendary mozzarella bar to your next dinner party and pair it with four delicious condiments: Salsa Romesco, Basil Pesto, Caper Relish, and Black Olive Tapenade, and served with Fett’unta — grilled bread drowning in olive oil.

Join Nancy with Chi Spacca’s executive chef, Ryan, as they both share the techniques, secrets, and inspiration behind their dramatic and famous Chi Spacca Pepper Steak: a special pepper-crusted steak served with bacon and charred scallions.

From fried parsley and orange zest to shaved cauliflower and bagna cauda croutons, this Chi Spacca Caesar salad creation is bursting with texture, flavor, and originality.

Join Nancy inside her favorite kitchen in Panicale, Italy where she learns to make traditional tagliatelle from the world's foremost pasta authorities: two Italian nonnas!

Nancy puts her own creative spin on this Italian stewed sweet pepper classic by roasting it in the oven to achieve a richer, more deeply caramelized flavor profile. These peppers are going to totally steal the show at your next party.

Ever wonder how a chef conceives a new dish? Watch Nancy’s creative process from the farm truck to first bite in pursuit of a seasonal and delectable dish. Learn how to compose a plate to account for color, texture, moisture, depth and of course, flavor.

Learn how to coax the best texture and flavor out of earthy butter potatoes by first confit-ing them in oil, butter, garlic cloves, fresh rosemary and sage.

The recipe was inspired by Nancy’s celery and burrata dish at Mozza Bar, a plate that chef Deb Mikhail said that “celery can actually be cool.” Doctored up with turmeric, crushed Persian lime and fresh mint, this dish is bright and vibrant.

Learn the eggplant essentials, like how to score, salt and sweat them to release any bitter juices. Caramelize onions, “candy” your garlic, and top with whey to take this dish to another level. An unforgettable side at your next dinner party.

We’re back in Nancy’s home kitchen where she’s preparing Spiced Lamb Ribs for a dinner party. Learn life changing cooking hacks and get a glimpse into Nancy’s quirky culinary world when she busts out a flea market coffee grinder to make her spice rub.

Nancy serves dinner in her Italian garden with a cascade of contorni that highlight the season’s best: roasted tomatoes with thyme & black olives; roasted cauliflower with caraway seeds; baked cabbage with olive oil; and baked onions with sage and vinegar.

Feel at home with this comforting apple pie recipe. Each pie bursts with a heaping cupful of sautéed apples. Nancy loves to top each pie with a big mound of vanilla gelato, and so should you.
