In my kitchen in Varenna, you'll have the chance to immerse yourself in Italian culinary culture, surrounded by breathtaking views and the serenity of this unique and magical place.

We enjoyed a wonderful cooking experience with Monica in Varenna. Great venue and fun, easy recipes that we can make ourselves when we return home.

Monica was delightful, and a wonderful teacher! I already make pasta at home once in a while, and we are so glad we signed up for this time with Monica and another very lovely couple!

Monica is a great instructor and clearly explains everything. When we arrived she welcomed us with preseco and antipasti. She made ravioli dough making easy and also taught us to make tiramisu. She is funny and shared great stories and adventures in the Lake Como area, along with other areas as well.

My fiance and I thought this cooking class was such a fun activity on our Lake Como vacation. Monica was so sweet, the space was so unique, and the food was absolutely delicious. It was one of the best things we ate on our entire trip! The reason for the 4 stars is the class was a tad rushed as we were told we would miss the ferry back to Bellagio. Although we had the ferry schedule and knew there would be multiple ferries running, we listened to her as we were not local. It's possible it was an honest mistake, however it made the class a bit rushed which was disappointing. On a side note, I assumed we would also be cooking the pasta, but it's actually only making the past as stated in the description. Even with that, this was still a wonderful experience and I would love to eat that pasta again.
