Hi from Cristina!

"My passion for cooking dates back to the times when as a child I liked to observe my mother kneading the shortcrust pastry with such care and my father who had a particular fondness for homemade pasta. I remember dinners with friends on Saturday evenings or family lunches on Sundays, where tagliatelle or lasagna with homemade pasta were a "must" and, finally, an exquisite jam tart could not be missing. In the family we had the legendary Aunt Cristina who was a cook in a rich Milanese family. His recipe book, handwritten with a handwriting that belongs to the past, contains many little secrets that he diligently noted down and which today are a precious heritage from which to draw on many ideas and suggestions. My cuisine is linked to traditions, but I really like to diversify and give a particular touch to the various dishes of Como and Lombardy specialties, strictly using local, organic and 0 km products".

My 21 and 23 year old sons and me had a wonderful time learning to make tagliatelle, ravioli and tiramisu with Cristina. It was such a treat to be in her warm and well organized kitchen in her home and to learn about her local farms and specialties. She was very informative and we all had fun participating in the cooking. Then we enjoyed our creations at a lovely table in her garden with her beautiful family. It was such a special day for us, a real highlight of our 10 days in Italy. Cristina is warm and welcoming and I highly recommend her class to anyone wanting an authentic and special cooking experience.

Christine was so accommodating ! We thought this class was center of Como and we found out it was 25 min away! She waited for us as the others in the Laura and Edgar waited for us - it was a nice place on the outskirts of Como in the country side. The house was warm and comfortable atmosphere and the kitchen welcoming. We make a tagliatelle noodle and raviolis and the tiramisu. She gave is very good insight to each dish and the ingredients were fresh and wonderful. The food turned out wonderful and was so very good ! The company was exceptional and we hope that she will come to California so we can have a cooking class here !!!

This cooking class with Cristina was unbelievable. It was at her home which was beautiful with an amazing view of the mountain around Como. The meats and cheese and figs(from her garden) were so tasty. The class itself taught us how to make Focaccia bread, Tagliatelle, and a homemade Italian dessert. Her Italian and English was perfect. It was so easy to understand what she was asking us to do and she taught us how to do everything so we could do it at home. She made it so easy. We got to eat what we made in her courtyard served with delicious wine looking at the mountains of Como. Would highly recommended her and this class to anyone that wants an authentic Italian experience. Well worth the money, she should charge more! She made us feel like we were eating with family in her house. Can’t wait to come back and visit again!

We had a truly wonderful evening learning to cook pasta with Cristina. My two daughters and I loved the relaxed setting and fun atmosphere. Cristina and her family welcomed us warmly into their home and went the extra mile to make our experience memorable. Would definitely recommend Cristina’s class to anyone interested in authentic Italian cooking.

Our experience with Cristina was WONDERFUL! She took us to explore a local goat farm and their market (one of us avoids cow dairy), as well as a nearby saffron farm where we had all our questions answered by the farmer/owner. Cristina opened her home to us and served a beautiful homemade 4-course meal featuring local specialties. She invited us into the kitchen to watch her prepare local lake fish. She and her husband together were warm hosts and we left feeling as though we had visited old friends. This was an exceptional experience and one my family will remember for a long time!
