    The aperitivo ritual is a classic in Milan: with this course we learn how to make some recipes to replicate it at home and invite friends over, surprising them with many creative but easy-to-make ideas. More informal than a dinner party but as substantial as a lunch, aperitivo is not just olives, pizzettas and chips!

    During the course you can sip a "sbagliato," the famous cocktail invented in Milan in an equally famous bar, which you can glimpse out the window!

    What we will prepare (ingredients vary depending on the season) polenta sandwich with kale pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and caramelized onion bruschetta with herbs, walnuts, capers, olives and chili peppers chickpea, pumpkin and thyme pie borlotti croquettes, apples and hazelnuts

    Beatrice è una cuoca fantastica, che riesce a coinvolgerti dall'inizio alla fine, con le sue spiegazioni, conoscenze e allegria. Un punto di riferimento per una cucina vegetale buonissima, super consigliata!

    I had such an awesome time in her class. She was friendly, informative, and guiding me very well to make pasta and tiramisu from the scratch. Of course, food was amazingly delicious! It was one of my highlights of my Milan trip. I would absolutely love to take her class again when I trip to Milan in the future.

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Milan    Languages: English, Italian, French
    Nowadays, Milan is a primary tourist destination throughout the year. The selection of attractions is vast. Even if you abandon the usual classic tour of the monuments, museums and squares, the markets scattered around the city can be a fascinating discovery. Places like the many farmers' markets on the outskirts of Milan, where you can buy locally produced seasonal products. That's what Beatrice, our Cesarina, loves to do! Enthusiastic about healthy cuisine based on vegetables, Beatrice attended a macrobiotic and ‘natural’ cooking school to specialize in the combination of ingredients, the organization of meals and the use of local and sustainable ingredients. Beatrice feels that it is important to offer the option of an 'inclusive' cuisine. Respect for the land comes from not only using recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, but also from searching for quality ingredients that have a short or very short supply chain. At Beatrice’s table, we can enjoy a journey through the flavors of seasonal vegetables, making traditional recipes both creative and surprising.
