Hi from Patrizia!

"My life is tied to the lake, this is where I have my roots and where I’m fine. I am a painter, my work allows me to manage time and the kitchen is for me my second workshop, where I can easily create dishes instead of paintings. My two children, now grown up and my husband were those who made me practice and love cooking. Hosting friends during the summer in the garden was an opportunity to understand that receiving guests is a pleasure and a personal enrichment. The ingredients of my recipes are all genuine, from local producers:  honey, cheese, fish, directly from the fisherman in Dervio, and vegetables from my garden that my husband cares with passion for many years. Our house is a bit like the houses of the past, the fireplace and the stove allow us to warm up and cook with wood, and I must say that the result of the dishes cooked on the wood stove is very good. Also in the garden we have a kitchen and, in summer, we prepare, cook and always eat outdoors."

My fiance and I had the most amazing time with Patrizia and Luca! They helped coordinate our transportation to their house from Varenna. We were welcomed outside, and they gave us a tour of their lovely home. We then began cooking with some great conversation, making a 3 course meal and learning a lot about them and Italy. We ate on their patio with the most amazing view of lake Como. They were so hospitable, offering wine and seconds every minute! Overall I HIGHLY recommend a dinner with them! 10/5 stars if I could! So fun, memorable, all while learning a lot. Thank you Patrizia and Luca for such a lovely evening.

We absolutely loved our cooking experience with Patrizia. She made us feel so welcome in her home and was very knowledgeable about the food. The ingredients were fresh and delicious. Patrizia made such a special effort to offer fantastic vegan options, which we really appreciated. The music, food, wine and views were out of this world. We would thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone, particularly foodies and vegan travelers. Make sure you go hungry as there is a lot of food!

Patrizia and Luca were the BEST hosts!! They were so nice and so accommodating and taught us how to make the most delicious food. This has been the highlight of our trip so far and couldn’t recommend this experience enough!

We had the best time with Patrizia and Luca. They both were so welcoming and kind. The food was outstanding and the view and hospitality equally so. This was the highlight of our entire stay in Lake Como. We highly recommend this to anyone seeking an authentic Italian food experience.

A highlight of our trip! Patrizia was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and welcoming! We made 2 pastas and a tiramisu which was amazing! She made us feel at home and providing snacks and wine, which were delicious! The view she has is amazing and after making the food it’s lovely to sit and look at the lake to enjoy! Thanks again for a special evening!
