Private Cooking Class


Choose which dishes you want to prepare, your private cooking class will be completely tailored.

You can focus on dishes from a specific Italian region. Or you can choose to develop your skills on some topics: pasta making, or dessert preparation, or baking.

We will use seasonal, organic, locally sourced ingredients.

I speak Italian, English, and French, if guests speak different languages, then English will be used.
