Monica was such a good instructor. She explained every step of tge process of preparing and cooking. It was a delightful class and visit with Monica in her beautiful garden kitchen. I highly recommend her and wish I had more time to take other classes.

Beatrice was the best cook and teacher! She explained everything so clearly! It was 103 f the day we cooked so very warm! The choices of stuffed pasta and sauces were amazing! We are awaiting the recipes via email so we can try to make this in our own! We loved her and the Como area!!!

Alessia was great. We already make pasta a little at home but she thought us some very useful tips and tricks and ended up provided some lovely local pasta dishes, with local cheese, vinegar, and wine. Thank you Alessia!

It was an amazing experience! We learned so much about the typical food of the town and some history about the town as well! And the food was AMAZING! Great recipes and techniques that have been passed down. Very amazing experience

Cooking classes from passionate cooks always leave you with more than just recipes, quantities, time, and temperature. You are sure to walk away with secrets of cuisine and a country that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. I cooked with Teresa yesterday and she was extremely welcoming, professional, and we made some delicious food. I learned about how delicate you need to be when making homemade pasta, some secrets of making a tasty sauce, and what Sicilians often do to make their fish perfectly flavorful. These are the things that I'll take with me as I live and cook in different places and different cuisines. I cook only as a hobby and for me, it's an important way to slow down, express myself, and give back to friends and family so the opportunity to learn from a person such as Teresa is something I'm grateful for. I'll certainly be back and highly recommend spending a few hours with Teresa. You will enjoy it, watch and learn, and eat like a King/Queen. Thank you, Teresa! --- I corsi di cucina tenuti da cuochi appassionati lasciano sempre qualcosa di più di semplici ricette, quantità, tempi e temperature. Sicuramente vi lasceranno i segreti di una cucina e di un Paese che potrete portare con voi per il resto della vostra vita. Ieri ho cucinato con Teresa, che è stata estremamente accogliente, professionale e ha preparato dei piatti deliziosi. Ho imparato quanto bisogna essere delicati quando si prepara la pasta fatta in casa, alcuni segreti per preparare un sugo saporito e cosa fanno spesso i siciliani per rendere il pesce perfettamente saporito. Sono cose che porterò con me quando vivrò e cucinerò in luoghi e cucine diverse. Cucino solo per hobby e per me è un modo importante per rallentare, esprimere me stessa e restituire ad amici e familiari, quindi l'opportunità di imparare da una persona come Teresa è qualcosa di cui sono grata. Tornerò sicuramente e consiglio vivamente di trascorrere qualche ora con Teresa. Vi divertirete, guarderete e imparerete, e mangerete come un re/una regina. Grazie, Teresa!

My sister, niece and I had a lovely time with Santa. The whole experience was wonderful - from Santa's warm personality, to her cozy home-- she had food and drink out when we arrived and fun music playing. She was very well prepared and taught us in a way that we now feel confident we can create a tasty pasta meal with tiramisu for dessert for our family and friends. Highly recommend this opportunity! Thank you, Santa!

I would thoroughly recommend booking a cooking lesson with Simona. Simona is an excellent cook and teacher. Her and her husband were amazing hosts, very welcoming! They even picked me up and dropped me to the station to make my journey easier. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
