"It is indescribable ... breathtaking Lake Como must be seen ..." This is how Cesarina Bea welcomes us to her cozy home in the historical town center of Como, located within walking distance of the lake.

Como is a fascinating city full of charm and history, as is Bea’s cooking - "my cooking speaks of the past" – uniting tradition with a strong creative flair. 

Tradition and creativity are the characteristics that distinguished Bea during her participation on the sixth edition of Bake off Italia, a cooking show dedicated to preparing traditional Italian sweets. Now, after this extraordinary event, our Cesarina awaits us for an unforgettable culinary experience...

The experience my husband and I had was perfect. Our host/teacher Beatrice went out of her way to ensure we had a wonderful time cooking, laughing and eating. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to take a memory of Italy back home with them.

Beatrice was a very gracious and did a wonderful job of demystifying pasta-making. We made raviolis, a polenta dish, and a no-machine ice cream -- all were delicious. We were confident enough in the techniques Beatrice showed us that we have made all three dishes again since we've been home, and all turned out great! We will continue to make these recipes and relive the memories we made during our time at Lake Como. Highly recommend!
