Hi from Tomaso!

Tomaso, a double-bass player, and his daughter Agata, a young student, welcome us into their lavish home which looks out over the port of Genova, and a fabulous panorama of the Ligurian sea. In 2004, Tomaso discovered that as well as a passion for music, he also had a gift for cooking. He started attending courses until he finally gained a professional chef qualification. With the help of the talented Agata, he began organising dinners and events, always striving to develop his creativity in the kitchen whether it’s in restaurants, agriturismos, or even aboard luxurious yauchts in Montecarlo.

My friends and I had such a nice time preparing our meal with Tomaso and his daughter. Their hospitality was top notch and their passion for Genoese cuisine was evident. I have been The quality of the ingredients and the instruction on technique was also excellent. I highly recommend this experience.

Tomaso and his daughter were fantastic! The experience of learning to cook Italian food in a private home in Italy was a wonderful experience. Tomaso made the experience extra special by having nice hot foccacia right out of the oven…he is humorous also. Excellent.

Tomaso and his daughter were helpful in getting us to their home for our cooking class when we got lost. We enjoyed being immersed in their home/culture for this small hands on cooking class.

L’esperienza con Agata e Tomaso è stata molto più di una semplice cooking class. Ci hanno accolto nella loro bellissima casa tradizionale e trasmesso in poche ore tutta la loro passione per la cucina tradizionale genovese e ci hanno fatto sentire a casa. Ringraziamo ancora Agata e Tomaso e consiglieremo l’esperienza ai nostri conoscenti.

Esperienza super - May 2024
