Bella Bistro Culinary Studio

Bella Bistro has a passion for the food, wine, people, and culture of Italy. The executive chef and owner, Shelly, is known to think outside the box and does not shy away from the unusual, the extreme, or the grand. Regular trips to Italy keep her inspired to create new dishes using fresh seasonal and local products.

Shelly will be in Italy August 16 through September 16, 2014. During her trip, Shelly will be experiencing harvest with Cantine Barbera in Sicily, also traveling through Puglia to explore her Italian ancestory. In the first part of September she will travel to Venice to meet up with a group of women who are from Denver, Colorado. On their culinary wine tour they will visit the Prosecco region of Treviso, venture to Lake Como, and stop in Piemonte to visit another winery and sample some Barolo. Then, a beautiful visit to Santa Margherita to experience the seaside villages. Shelly will be back in Colorado in the fall, so if you are interested in scheduling a cooking lesson or dinner event this fall or holiday season, please contact us.
