Hands-on cooking class with bruschetta, 3 recipes (starter, pasta and dessert) followed by an Italian aperitivo and a 3-course menu with the recipes prepared during the class.

All the recipes are typical, but in particular the pasta one is very dear to me, as I learned it from my Grandfather Nunzio.

We will start cooking polenta with anchovy sauce) and then prepare pizzoccheri (a type of short tagliatelle, a flat ribbon pasta, made with buckwheat flour and wheat flour). The dessert is called "pan meino" and is a typical Lombard dish.

Well what can we say! We loved the whole experience. From the moment we arrived our host Sandra was amazing… excellent teacher at pasta making, we know now where we were going wrong! Thank you 🤩 Sandra was passionate about her ingredients and talked us through each course, explaining how she made it and also about her home of Puglia. She also played awesome music so she made us feel at home in her home. We will be trying all the recipes out when we go home, especially the limoncello. Would definitely recommend and again a massive thank you.

Sandra provided the perfect cooking class. Beautiful apartment, everything prepared for pasta making. She is professional, kind, funny, knowledgeable, and with a truly bright light personality. Fun, happy, and very gifted in showing us how to make tagliatelle and ravioli, using different pasta for each. Our pasta was the lightest I’ve ever tasted. Yum! Yes, I loved the class and will come back to Sandra again. The best!

Sandra is an awesome host and an excellent cook. She taught me how to make pasta from scratch, which was very fun. She also gave me the recipes for the delicious foods she cooked. If you happen to have Sandra as your host, you are in for a treat!

Sandra greatly spoiled us with our 1st cooking class experience in Italia! She made it relaxed with music (we all ended up singing along)and enjoyable with generous wine pours and light-hearted conversation while she educated us on cooking techniques. She explained each ingredient used and laughed along with us while documenting our experience with photos and videos. Sandra has a 7 year old sourdough starter and I have never had more delicious bread in my life. I would book this tour over and over with each visit to Milano just to spend more time with Sandra.

"I'm an altamuran transferred to Milan. I delight in preparing everything from pasta to bread to biscuits, ranging in my recipes between meat dishes, fish, legumes and vegetables. I enjoy continually experimenting with new dishes and am curious about every kitchen in the world. I have been keeping my yeast for several years. I prefer raw materials to km 0, of growers of Lodi. I'm an empathetic and sunny person; I like to have people in the house and take care of them at the table. Passionate about interior design, I'm very attentive to the care of my home because I like that my guests have a visual pleasure in addition to the taste."
