Your menu

    For this unique experience, where we'll stroll through fields and visit enchanting places near Como, I'll welcome you to my home in the morning, around 9:00 am.

    After enjoying breakfast with homemade cake and cappuccino or coffee, we'll embark on a journey to find wild herbs for our culinary creations. On our way back, we'll stop at a convent to purchase fresh eggs and seasonal vegetables. Our cooking class will start by preparing a lunch inspired by nature's offerings. You'll be involved in all preparations, from appetizer to dessert, as we craft a menu together using the herbs we've gathered: the true stars of our experience.

    This was one of the best experiences I have had. Damiano is a superior chef, has a wonderful personality, and is a fabulous host. I recommend him for everyone who uses Cesarine .

    This experience was amazing! Damiano and Frederico were wonderful hosts and the cooking lesson with Damiano was excellent. We loved the meal as well as visiting around the table. Their hospitality was so appreciated.

    Literally the most AMAZING experience. Damino was so kind, fun and the best host we could have asked for. The evening felt like cooking and catching up with old friends. Definitely would highly recommend.

    Cesarina from 2020Location: Lomazzo    Languages: Italian, English, French
    I have always had a strong passion for cooking that led me first to learn simple and traditional family Sunday recipes, and then to attend the Bellagio Hotel School. A glass of good wine and an excellent dessert, which I am fond of, must never be missing from my table. I try to shop responsibly and, as much as possible, purchase local products such as eggs, vegetables, and meats from local producers. The lake fish I use in my recipes is caught directly by fisherman friends, while I personally collect mushrooms during autumn and preserve them for subsequent seasons. I live in Lomazzo, a small historical village. From my loggia, you can overlook the square of the Baroque Church of San Siro and the "Arco della Pace," where in 1286, the peace treaty between the rival cities of Como and Milan was signed. I open my home to guests who want to learn the secrets of Lombard cuisine and, why not, something about traditional Italian cuisine as well. Lomazzo, considered a working-class village due to the presence of an important cotton mill that for 200 years was the flagship of Italian manufacturing industry (now transformed into an Innovation Hub), is nestled in the Lombard countryside. It serves as a crossroads to easily reach Milan, Como, its lake, and Switzerland, both through the railway station that connects the two Lombard cities in just a few minutes and the convenient highway access. For my guests, in addition to offering them a beautiful experience, I provide free round-trip transfers from Lomazzo to Como by car (max. 4 people) or by train, both from Como (Como Lago Station/Lomazzo) and Milan (Milan Cadorna Station/Lomazzo).
