We will also cook risottos and lake fish; and then taste them together while admiring the wonderful view of the lake and the city of Como.

Cannot say enough good things about our small-group cooking class with Anna last night. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE from beginning to end. She was an unbelievable hostess and made us feel like "family" throughout the entire evening. In all we spent some 5 hours at her home enjoying fantastic fun, fellowship, and food that we helped prepare under her guidance. I have always wanted to cook Italian in Italy and this was really a "dream come true" night for me. Highly recommend Anna if you are anywhere close to the Como area.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Anna, my host. I felt like cooking together with a friend on the weekend. Everything went very smooth and casual, the food was wonderful, and Anna is a great person to be around. If you are at Como - highly recommend, definitely one of my highlights.

I had a wonderful time visiting and cooking with Anna in Como. When we arrived we were greeted with a delicious array of appetizers set up on the dining room table. It was a great time learning her cooking techniques and enjoying our finished products. A very memorable evening.

Anna was absolutely lovely opening her home and making us feel like family. We had a lot of great laughing moments and learned the correct ways to make homemade pasta and a very delicious Tiramisu. Would highly recommend.

Anna was amazing!! Born and raised in Como and gave us such a good tour of the market and pointed out some of the towns hidden jewels. She treated us like we were family. Fed us an appetizer with wine in a scenic view in her cozy apartment. Then we cooked basic Italian classics. She was very patient with us and just absolutely incredible. Could not recommend her more. It was my husband and i’s favorite day of the trip!
