If you love the Valtellina, you cannot fail to appreciate the goodness of pizzoccheri, an iconic product of the local cuisine. The recipe for pizzoccheri is handed down from generation to generation. With local ingredients, buckwheat flour, casera cheese, vegetables and secrets that I will be happy to explain to you during the cooking class we will put this tasty dish on the table .

Sciatt are crispy, round-shaped pancakes with a heart of warm, stringy cheese-a specialty to learn to impress your friends.

Discover the recipe for Tiramisú, the world's most desired dessert, and enjoy a delicious dinner in the garden during the long summer evenings as the sun sets behind the mountains.

Patrizia's private cooking class was the highlight of our honeymoon. She invited us to her family home with stunning lake view and taught us how to make the best homemade pasta, tortelloni and tiramisu. She treated us like family guests with kindness and love. Grazie Mille, Patrizia!

We had the loveliest morning with Patricia. The food we made was so tasty and the location and teaching was just perfect. We all enjoyed every second. Thank you x

Cooking with Patricia and her husband Luca was one of the highlights of my trip. They were both so friendly and thoughtful and this experience was truly perfect from the instructions they gave to the snacks they provided to the amazing views of their home that we got to enjoy while eating the delicious meal they helped us create! I definitely recommend this experience for a fun but low key way to experience the food, culture, and people of Lake Como.

Patrizia was so warm and welcoming to her home. Which had the most amazing views of the Lake. We made such delicious pasta and Tiramisu that we plan to make as soon as we get back home.

"My life is tied to the lake, this is where I have my roots and where I’m fine. I am a painter, my work allows me to manage time and the kitchen is for me my second workshop, where I can easily create dishes instead of paintings. My two children, now grown up and my husband were those who made me practice and love cooking. Hosting friends during the summer in the garden was an opportunity to understand that receiving guests is a pleasure and a personal enrichment. The ingredients of my recipes are all genuine, from local producers:  honey, cheese, fish, directly from the fisherman in Dervio, and vegetables from my garden that my husband cares with passion for many years. Our house is a bit like the houses of the past, the fireplace and the stove allow us to warm up and cook with wood, and I must say that the result of the dishes cooked on the wood stove is very good. Also in the garden we have a kitchen and, in summer, we prepare, cook and always eat outdoors."
