WCR Luisa Magnan NAIT

Holiday Entertaining with Chef Luisa Rizzi, Instructor of Culinary Arts at NAIT and Jennie Marshall, Your Expert in Everything Edmonton

Join Luisa as she shows you three delicious hors d’oeuvres recipes, perfect for your next holiday party!

A daughter of a robust Italian family, Luisa’s passion for cooking was influenced by her family’s traditional recipes. Luisa fondly remembers the best part of the cooking experience – concluding with the expression “Mangia, Mangia” (eat, eat), as the family would gather together to enjoy the pleasures of the table.
