Eataly La Scuola

La Scuola is a cooking school on the second floor of the 63,000 square foot Italian marketplace, focused on all sorts of various themed classes designed to enlighten and dazzle foodies and home cooks alike. With Eataly partner Lidia Bastianich in town to help inaugurate La Scuola, school is officially in session.

The curriculum for La Scuola runs the gamut from food and language classes to Meatless Mondays events and demo-style lessons focused on risotto, fresh pasta, and other Italian delicacies. Seeing as a huge focal point of the Eataly brand centers on education, be it an eye-opening product on the shelf or an invigorating wine tasting, La Scuola is the perfect segue for guests looking to broaden their perspective of Italian cuisine.
Eataly’s lesson plan is already arranged and scheduled through April. A series of Chef’s Kitchen classes include “The Art of Winter Risotto,” “Fresh Winter Pasta,” “Cooking With Italian Seafood,” “The Italian Pantry,” and “Sunday Supper.”

Mario Batali’s and Joe Bastianich’s 63,000-square-foot, two-level complex is an eight-restaurant “polpo,” as well as a butcher, a produce market, and a grocery with imported olive oil, wine and pastas, as well as locally sourced products. There are also stations for Nutella, salumi, cheese, pizza, espresso and fresh breads and pastries. The Chicago location is only the second outpost in the United States.
