Your menu

    Italian cuisine has many ravioli recipes,they are my passion and I have experimented with many versions of this dish.

    We will prepare three recipes , starting from the same scratch, but in three different colors. Three different fillings will turn ravioli into a delicate appetizer, a tasty first course and finally an original dessert. Appetizer: Green ravioli filled with ricotta and lemon, dressed in tuna sauce. First course: Ravioli prosciutto*and Robiola cheese with Parmesan, butter and sage. Dessert : Giant Sweet Cocoa ravioli with caramelized pears or berry coulisse. Bread or Bruschetta, one bottle of wine, water and coffee complete the experience.

    *If you're vegetarian, let me know when you book: we'll make Swiss chards Ravioli instead, a typical recipe from my area, Lake Como.

    Monica was a joy to do the cooking class with, we both had a wonderful time. Extremely kind, helpful, and nurtured us along the way to what was a delicious couple of dishes! The food was wonderful, the company was great, and we'd highly recommend to anyone considering :)

    We had so much fun cooking with Monica! Her home is lovely and Monica was so warm, welcoming, and fun! We made tiramisu, a Parmesan bowl and zucchini appetizer and homemade ravioli. Everything was absolutely delicious! Monica took her time to explain everything to us and made sure that we were preparing everything ourselves , with her guidance. I have already made the appetizer for my family and ordered a pasta machine and ravioli mold for our homemade ravioli. She has inspired us!!! My husband and I both agree that our cooking class with Monica was one of the best evenings of our trip!!!

    Abbiamo scelto il corso di pasta fresca ed è stata una bellissima esperienza: dalla casa meravigliosa in cui siamo stati accolti alla piacevole conversazione ci siamo sentiti come tra amici. Monica è davvero una host di classe e allo stesso tempo alla mano, disponibile a insegnare e a condividere i suoi preziosi trucchi in cucina.

    This was an amazing experience. We made parmesan baskets with zucchini and herbs, cheese and Swiss chard ravioli, and tiramisu. Monica was so gracious with our family of 6 - both teaching us proper cooking techniques and also teaching us about Como. Highly recommend this experience!

    “I love to write, and to read, in fact, books fill my house. I am mindful of the quality of food; I like to cook what I eat; and share the pleasure of the table with other people, friends, and guests. I am involved in the recovery of food surpluses for social solidarity purposes with the Food Bank of Lombardy Onlus in Como, where I live. I try to hand down recipes that are simple, and easy to learn by everyone, and that are connected as much as possible to the tradition of the Larian territory.”
