Marcos' Kitchen Cooking classes

Scheduled or private cooking classes

Looking for things to do near Milan?
Do you love Italian food?
Do you love nature?

Cooking in someone’s home is different than cooking in fancy kitchens with fancy equipment

Our scheduled cooking classes are held at my home that is an ancient farmhouse located in the beautiful Ticino Natural Park, only 45 minutes by train from Milan, on Lake Maggiore.

Surrounded by nature

Your table in the wood is waiting!

We will have lunch in the wood, literally, enjoying food and complimentary beer or wine.
At the end of the lunch, we will be able to have a walk in the woods trying to spot the different animals that live in there: foxes, hares, dormice, wild boars, buzzards, cuckoos, woodpeckers, etc.
In case of adverse weather conditions lunch will be held in the living room of my home that has large windows overlooking the woods.
