  • Tagliatelle / Tajarin
  • Potato gnocchi
  • Tiramisù

Making gnocchi was my Saturday morning task. With grandma we would choose the best potatoes and, as soon as they were cooked, together we would start kneading. The memory is still very present in my mind and also in that of my children to whom I wanted to pass on this tradition of ours. In this cooking class we will learn how to make potato gnocchi. We can dress them with pesto or with a meat and sausage ragout. We will also go on to make tagliatelle, kneading flour and eggs, while dessert will be the most classic of tiramisu, coffee tiramisu. All this in my house that is still grandmother's house where you can breathe the tradition of old-fashioned flavors and from where you can enjoy a view of the Borromean Islands. I am waiting for you in Baveno to share moments of serenity with me.

Gabriella had already precooked some dishes, which was fantastic because we only had to finish the dish while she ecplained the tips and tricks. Lovely italian dishes, great place with wonderful view over the lake, highly recommended!

Three girlfriends and I had dinner with Gabriella and her husband. What a fun night with many laughs and learning. She taught us how to make risotto and other Italian cooking tips, but we enjoyed four courses including wine and dessert. Awesome experience and would highly recommend an evening with this wonderful couple!!

Gabriella and Fausto were wonderful, kind and gracious hosts. They were very accommodating, made us a delicious dinner with wine and taught us about Italian food and cooking. We will always remember this experience!

Gabriella and Fausto welcomed us into their home in the beautiful town of Vabeno. Gabriella considered our dietary requests and made a delicious dinner like we had never had before! They were very friendly, and we had a lovely conversation with many laughs. It was an unforgettable experience!

Gabriella & her partner Fausto were incredible. The meal was delicious, the education was top tier, & the wine was wonderful. They were very accommodating as we brought our 2 month old baby with us! It felt like being at home and cooking a wonderful meal with an old friend. Gabriella is an excellent teacher and we cannot wait to recreate the recipe she shared with us back home. The next time we’re around Lake Maggiore, we’ll definitely book another class! Best part of our trip to the area.

"The kitchen has fascinated me since the child, I followed carefully mom to the stove trying to learn all her recipes. Mine is a 360 degree cuisine that enhances my region, Piedmont. With my partner, wine connoisseur, who follows me in my creations, we prepare delicious dishes that respect the tradition with particular attention to the research and selection of ingredients."
