A cuisine based on traditional recipes but revisited with a modern twist, always using fresh produce. We will pick vegetables from the small garden and fry them in extra virgin olive oil with a rice batter. We will make ravioli with eggs from the chicken coop and prepare the filling with artisan-smoked lake fish, served with parsley sauce, as per tradition. We will add char caviar. To finish we will prepare typical Lake Como cake, with bread, cornmeal, apples, pears and grapes.

Debora was awesome! She was a very gracious hostess. The cooking session was so much fun and she was a pleasure to talk to the entire evening. The food turned out delicious and she even sent the recipes to us to make at home. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a fun, enjoyable evening!

My husband and I had a class with Debora during our honeymoon. It was just the two of us. Debora was so lovely, charming and warm!!! We felt so welcome and had such a great time soaking up as much knowledge as we could during our time with her. The food was delicious and the conversation was fabulous as well! We can’t wait to try and recreate the recipes on our own. We’ll always remember this experience!

This cooking class was the absolute highlight of our Italy trip. Debora is a fantastic host sharing her home, her food and her stories. The pasta we made was delicious and it was lot of fun making it with Debora as our teacher. My kids are 4 and 7 declared it was the best food they had eaten in Italy - high praise indeed!

Debora was amazing, she invited us into her lovely home and taught us how to make pasta and tiramisu from scratch. We couldn’t have asked for a better time with her. She was a joy to be around and to learn from.

This cooking class was the highlight of my friends' and my two week long trip to Italy. We are English speakers with very very limited Italian proficiency and Debora was simply the best hostess possible. She met us at a restaurant right near her house to walk us there since the narrow streets were a bit confusing. She was incredibly kind, she served us wine and appetizers on her patio before bringing us inside to prep and cook dinner. She explained everything very thoroughly, and both her English and her zest for cultural exchange were incredibly welcoming to us. We listened to Italian pop music and talked about her grandmother. There were two other women in the class and the small group of six was super intimate. I could not have had a better experience, and I cannot say enough good things about how kind and warm she was to us!
