Local chef Allison Anastasio, who launched her virtual Last Bite cooking classes during the COVID-19 pandemic, is now hosting in-person classes at The Newton.

“They are intimate events full of hands-on experience,” Anastasio wrote A4 via email. “Each workshop maxes at 6 participants and culminates in enjoying your meal in the dining room of the inn.”
