Southborough’s Culinary Underground bakes up some vacation fun

Southborough – Keeping kids busy during school vacation when there is no snow on the ground for sledding and building snowmen can be a bit tricky. To help meet the needs of parents looking for activities for their kids and for kids looking to have some vacation fun, the Culinary Underground planned a week full of fun and instructional classes. From candy science to pasta making from scratch to cake decorating, classes were geared to both the novice cook and the more advanced ones.

On Dec. 27 a group of kids ages 12 and up enjoyed a two-hour cake decorating class run by instructors Chef Liz Della Paolera (a former elementary school teacher) and Carol Sanzone.

“We want the kids to be able to do this at home,” said Della Paolera. “The idea is to give them hands-on experience, teaching them by demonstration and then by doing.”

Culinary Underground taught me how to quickly dry tofu and an amazing recipe I have been cooking now for over a year. Fun night! I highly recommend this place for an incredible time and making accommodations for vegetarians!!


Date night with the wife could not have been any better! Great food, good wine and the owners were wonderful teachers. Thank you and can’t wait for the next one!!


It’s just overall, this really warm evening. They are amazing at making everyone feel welcome, and it’s just lovely.”

We just had a work party there. Great night fun team building and prefect menu for all levels of cooking. Being a food blogger and a BBQ Cook Off team even we learned a few tips and tricks.
