Royale aims to take you on “a journey through your taste buds” as she shares her personal techniques in culinary arts. Professionally trained in Milan, Royale was once a contestant on Master Chef and now runs her own show around the island of her kitchen.

The Italian Diva offers an intimate experience, limiting her class to four students. A culinary creation, a glass of wine, and lots of laughter are guaranteed.

Royale has had a passion for cooking since she was a pre-teen.

“I have the most fun interacting and teaching those who share my love of good food," she said.

Who doesn’t love good food? Not everyone is blessed with an intuition and taste that is needed for cooking, but Royale offers up her home in Wareham to share her knowledge and provide a fun evening for friends and family.
