"I love good food and I’ve always cooked, for over 10 years in summer I’m the chef at home and cooking classes. For some years now I have been researching a good, but health-conscious cuisine: homemade pasta with flour seeds of small mills, cakes with low cholesterol and sugar... The priority, however, is the goodness of the dishes: if they are not good it is useless that they are healthy and, in my opinion, in many cases it is possible to cook well and healthy."

Find out what people thought of their experience with Carlo

Our cooking experience and host Carlo was one of a kind. Carlo started by taking us to one of the local markets in the area and gave us a tour with a history of the market and surrounding buildings. At his home, which was very warm, he explained to us the process and helped us share in the cooking experience which involved making tiramisu, homemade pasta and ravioli, and some other side dishes. And then we dined together and had a great conversation. My wife and I really enjoyed the experience and highly recommend Carlo as a great conversationalist and cook! Thank you Carlo!

Great instructor and host. Fun to do a cooking class in someone’s home instead of a non personal large class. Highly recommend both the class and Carlo.

I had a great time at my cooking class with Carlo. We made bruschetta, ravioli and tiramisu. Carli brought in fresh herbs from the garden. His kitchen is small but super functional and I got ideas of things I want to buy for mine at home. Carlo was personable and informative. Highly recommend!

Carlo was an exceptional host ... he welcomed us into his home (alongside his perfect puppy!) with open arms - we had the best cooking experience! The meal was delicious and the view and conversation with Carlo was even better! We recommend everyone take this class with Carlo if they can.

Carlo was awesome. He was so welcoming and it was more than just a cooking class. We talked and got to know each other (and his adorable dog!). It ended up being just my partner and I and it was actually the only experience during our trip that we planned in advance. We feel like we learned 3 recipes and made a new friend. Thank you, Carlo!
