Photo essay: Italian cooking classes at Gateways Inn

Recently, the Gateways Inn in Lenox, MA hosted one of their fabulous Italian Cooking classes, offering a total immersion into the unique and  regional Italian foods, flavors, wines and traditions. Guests gathered and had the opportunity to learn from a master – Chef Rosemary Chiariello – co-owner of the Gateways Inn and award-winning baker.  During the cooking school weekend, Gateways Inn was lucky enough to host two talented photographers.  All photos below were shot by Tobias Gelston and Christina Bernales.  Take a photo tour of one of Gateway Inn’s Italian Cooking Classes, and you’ll want to reserve your spot soon.
