Would you like to live an authentic Italian Cooking Class Experience?

We will welcome you in an Italian-style country house surrounded by olive trees and directly to the lake. We’ll get know each other while enjoying a good coffee and a sweet local pastry. You’ll discover the secrets of the Italian cuisine inspired by tradition and innovation. We’ll use vegetables and aromatic herbs picked up from my lovely garden and extra virgin olive oil from very local groves. We’ll have fun cooking together traditional Italian recipes wearing our hand-dyed linen aprons. At the end you will toast with an excellent aperitif on the splendid terrace overlooking the lake.

Chloe from New York | Private Cooking Class

We took a private pasta-making class with Maria on our honeymoon in August 2018 in which we made two pastas, two sauces, and tiramisu. Maria is incredibly personable and knowledgeable. Everything was absolutely delicious, including the local wine that we had with our lunch once we were done making it! We learned some great tips and tricks that we are very excited to take back to our kitchen in the US. Thanks Maria!
