Tomaso and his daughter were fantastic! The experience of learning to cook Italian food in a private home in Italy was a wonderful experience. Tomaso made the experience extra special by having nice hot foccacia right out of the oven…he is humorous also. Excellent.

Tomaso and his daughter were helpful in getting us to their home for our cooking class when we got lost. We enjoyed being immersed in their home/culture for this small hands on cooking class.

My husband & I had the absolute best time. Tomaso was so welcoming and a great teacher. I would highly recommend this and it is definitely a once in a lifetime experience

Tomato and Agata really gave us a fabulous experience! The food was delicious. We were served fresh made focaccia when we arrived. We then made pasta and as it was “rising”, made tiramisu. Next we rolled the pasta into 2 types. One we added a filling to and the other was cooked and pesto was added. The dinner was delicious and served with wine. We really enjoyed learning from Tomaso and Agata.

Tomaso, a double-bass player, and his daughter Agata, a young student, welcome us into their lavish home which looks out over the port of Genova, and a fabulous panorama of the Ligurian sea.

In 2004, Tomaso discovered that as well as a passion for music, he also had a gift for cooking. He started attending courses until he finally gained a professional chef qualification. With the help of the talented Agata, he began organising dinners and events, always striving to develop his creativity in the kitchen whether it’s in restaurants, agriturismos, or even aboard luxurious yauchts in Montecarlo.
