Staycation: Eataly Chicago
Why waste a day flying to Italy for vacation when you can get fresh Italian pasta, cheese, and imported wine right in downtown Chicago? Eataly is known for its restaurants and shopping, but its lesser-known cooking and cheese-making classes make for a fun and different staycation activity! Dawn and Chris make fresh mozzarella by hand before watching a homemade pasta recipe as its being prepared. They finish their evening tasting their work, paired with Italian wine of course! All of the ingredients for the class can also be purchased in store so you can replicate the evening at home like a true Italian chef.
