Your experience
  • Bruschetta with garden produce
  • Tagliatelle with fresh tomato Sauce
  • Tiramisù

Welcome to my cozy and elegant home in Lierna, a small village on the shores of Lake Como. I'm Annamaria, your Cesarina, a cook by passion and profession. I invite you to join me on a culinary journey, where we together will discover the wonders of Italian cuisine. We'll start by preparing a bruschetta with fresh tomatoes from the garden, a simple but extraordinarily tasty appetizer, thanks to the freshness of its ingredients. We will then proceed with tagliatelle with fresh tomato sauce, a classic Italian dish that fully represents the essence of our gastronomic culture. My mission is to preserve and transmit Italian culinary traditions, respecting the seasonality of products and always seeking lightness in my dishes!

Anna was an absolute delight and our entire experience was unforgettable. She was patient in her explanation and made sure our pasta making was a success. We prepared two different dishes and got to enjoy the fruits of our labor with new friends at her beautiful home.

This was such a lovely cooking class! My grandmother and I did the course together and had the most amazing experience learning new things and doing it together! Could not recommend the class or Annamaria more!

We can not rave enough about are amazing hostess and her class. In her kitchen, high above Lake Como, my husband and I learned how to make pastas, tiramisu and bruschetta. Yum..She was so knowledgeable, (had owned her own restraurant) and was very positive, encouraging and kind. One of the high points of our 2 week adventure. Hope she writes a cookbook.❤️❤️

This class exceeded all of our expectations, and then some. Our most delightful and experienced Chef Annamaria, could not have done more to make us feel welcome and at home in her kitchen. I feel we have a new friend. She taught us so much—including secrets-and was very supportive and always encouraging. Hope she writes a cookbook one day. Thank you so very much for the unforgettable experience. We will talk about it always.
