It is impossible to think about Italy without thinking of delicious Italian food. The kitchen is central to the hearts and minds of Italian families and there are literally hundreds of Italian recipes that express true Italian style.

We have carefully selected the best of these, which we offer in our Italian cooking course, including delectable pasta sauces, home-made gnocchi, Osso Bucco, tiramisu and many other favourites to stimulate the senses. An Italian proverb states that “No one knows what is cooking in the pan better than the one doing the stirring”, or in other words, if you don’t get into the kitchen, you’ll never know how to do it like the Italians do it! No further invitation required…

Customer Reviews

What a night! We had no imea what to expect and did we have so much fun! I can now make pasta from scratch. Learned a lot and had a wonderful time. The other guests were really lovely and we had a wonderful dinner together. I can't wait to go back for another class. Thank you so much. - Hendriette Muller
