Image Profile



 Duration 3h

 Max 4 guests

Spoken languages:  Italian and English

Cooking class: learn how to cook Italian recipes and taste the dishes prepared during the class

Your menu
  • Bruschetta with tomato
  • Gnudi (homemade pasta) filled with vegetables and ricotta with in season sauce
  • Tiramisù (a chilled dessert made with coffee, lady fingers and mascarpone cheese)

I love to share my passion for traditional Tuscan cooking with my guests. During the course, we will prepare three typical recipes together, starting with bruschetta, which can be prepared with garlic and extra virgin olive oil or with fresh tomatoes, onion and basil. As a first course, we will learn how to prepare the irresistible gnudi, a ravioli without pasta with spinach, ricotta cheese and lots of Parmesan cheese, dressed with seasonal sauces. Finally, you cannot miss the dessert that represents Italianness in the world: tiramisu. We will sit down at the table to enjoy together the dishes we will have prepared, accompanied by a good glass of local wine.

This was a wonderful experience - the food was excellent and Silvia was a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher! Highly recommended if you are in Lucca, it was a memorable day!

We spent a wonderful evening in Silvia’s beautiful home. Not only did she provide us with delicious food and delightful company she was kind enough to drive us back to our apartment afterwards as we had some trouble navigating our way around the city. Cannot say enough good things about the entire experience in general and Silvia in particular.

Sylvia was fabulous. She took us to the local market and then prepared a lovely traditional Italian meal. She is a wonderful hostess. Her apartment and accommodations for the cooking lesson were perfect. She should be on tv….yes she is that good and entertaining.

"I love to host and take care of the table, I always try to create a mise en place with some ingredient that recalls the menu or seasonality. I prefer to cook dishes of land, typical of the Tuscan tradition, I do not try too much in desserts... but only not to eat too many!"
