"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...

Outstanding evening with Beatrice. My wife and my first trip to Italy and Beatrice helped us create an amazing meal.

Beatrice was the best cook and teacher! She explained everything so clearly! It was 103 f the day we cooked so very warm! The choices of stuffed pasta and sauces were amazing! We are awaiting the recipes via email so we can try to make this in our own! We loved her and the Como area!!!

My daughter and I took a pasta making class with Bea. I was very informative and fun. Learned a ton in a short amount of time. We would love to come back to Como and take a few more classes with Bea. She has such a great personality, makes your time valuable and treats you as a friend. Thanks for helping us find the right ingredients in the Stati Uniti.

It was truly fun to cook with Beatrice! We had two lessons and enjoyed both. Beatrice is an attentive, friendly and welcoming host.

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!
