Dinner and a Cooking Class
It's a busy time for Scottsdale's Maggiano's. Not only are they cooking up a five-course wine dinner on Tuesday, they will also be hosting a cooking class next Friday. 

Tuesday's five-course wine dinner menu starts with a warm pancetta and chicken dumpling soup folled by a grilled chicken pizza topped with a garlic truffle cream sauce. Next up, a red cabbage salad topped with slow roasted citrus marinated beef and a crispy chicken Diavlo with a mixed green salad. Finish things off with a slice of seven layer chocolate carrot cake topped with a chocolate raspberry mousse. Each course will be served with a perfectly paired Italian wine. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. and will run you $60 (all inclusive) per person. 

Friday's cooking class will teach you how to prepare extravagant appetizers and rich desserts including creamed corn in pasta sfoglia, cracked black pepper roast beef roulades, pistachio crusted bananas, and bananas foster over pound cake. Not only will you learn how to make these treats, you'll also get to eat them! The class runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and costs $75 per person. Reservations are required for both the wine dinner and the cooking class and can be made by calling 480-333-4100. 

Leftover Pie

Sadly there were zero leftovers in our house this Thanksgiving which means we will not be able to make our favorite turkey pot pies. But maybe you have leftovers so we thought we would share. Puff pastry, leftover turkey and some frozen veggies and you have yourself a nice little meal. Click here to check out the recipe.
