Your experience
  • Bruschetta, cheese and prosciutto Como's Mountain
  • Pizzoccheri (a type of short tagliatelle, a flat ribbon pasta, made with buckwheat flour and wheat flour)
  • Tiramisù

The covered market of Como is a big market where we can buy the real artisanal food that comes from the mountains near Como.

We will buy the preferred vegetables or meat of your choice and we will be cooking and eating in the garden of my house. This is an amazing experience: you'll be able to prepare and eat dishes that represent the flavors of this specific area.

Anna was an amazing host and chef!! We enjoyed our time so much with her from learning how to cook pasta and make ravioli to the aperitivo, snacks, and conversations. We would definitely recommend this experience!!

This was one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life! I can not recommend this experience enough. Anna was an absolutely incredible host! We spent the night cooking, chatting, and laughing. A bucket list experience I will never forget!

Anna was an excellent host! We prepared the most delicious pasta I have ever eaten. We did this class as a family, and it was a perfect way to learn more about Italian food and spend quality time together as a family. Anna is a delightful person and went above and beyond to make us comfortable in her lovely home.

We had a fantastic time with Anna, who patiently explained to us about all the produce in the market, shared stories about Como, whipped up a fantastic meat and cheese platter for us, and taught us how to cook two fantastic dishes that we cannot wait to recreate at home. We would love to do another class with her if we return to Como.

My husband and I treated my parents to a pasta making class in Lake Como. Everything was beyond expectations. Our host was Anna and she was phenomenal -- went above and beyond from the charcuterie she prepared ahead of time to her instructions making the pasta to her friendliness throughout the night. I would recommend this company and especially our host, Anna, time and time again.

"I am a cook and a kitchen historian, I know the artisanal production realities of Como and its mountains. I search for historical dishes from northern Italy and I make them, often adapting them to today. Above all country dishes, where raw materials brought from the city are mixed , in the holiday villas of the city furniture, such as precious spices that only arrived in the city, with meats, vegetables and cheeses produced on the hills. Specialized also in French country cuisine ".
