Holiday inspired cooking classes at Donna’s

Winter Squash Risotto - Donna's
There are times we just need a little inspiration, a muse of sorts, to brighten the holiday table and entertaining. Chef Donna Crivello of Donna’s located at the Village of Cross Keys has put together two demonstration cooking classes that will do that for you.  How about a winter squash risotto instead of stuffing, cranberry granita instead of cranberry relish from the can or something different and inspiring to put on your table or take to a covered dished gathering. 

Acclaimed chef and restaurateur Donna Crivello will prepare delicious dishes, share the finished creations (accompanied by specially-selected wines) with class participants, and provide her original recipes during these Tuesday night classes at Donna’s in Cross Keys. Each class will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and costs $50, which includes wine and tastes of each dish. Space is limited. Reservations can be made by phone at 410-532-7611 or by email at
