HEALTHY COOKING CLASSES FOR LOVERS OF ITALIAN FOOD IN LAKE COMO
Why cooking with me?
Do you like authentic Italian cooking? Is it difficult to find real Italian recipes taught in English, with measurements in both grams and cups? What better way to approach this experience with an Italian health coach (The Mamma Mia Diet!), cook and medical researcher who has learned her cooking secrets passed down from generation to generation. I was born in Como (Italy) on the shores of the beautiful lake (Lake Como) which bears the same name. I lived abroad for about a decade and I have returned to Italy to enjoy my stunning lake. Cooking has always been my passion and I am very happy to transmit that.
I offer fun, informal, hands-on and personalized classes about healthy Italian cuisine, nutrition, culture and language.
I teach in English or Italian, using both metric and imperial measurements.
The idea of my cooking class is to give you the flavor of true Italian lifestyle through food, an experience for all senses. You will learn some Italian words while cooking delicious Italian food. At the end of the course you will receive a copy of all recipes prepared together. You can also purchase my book with 10% discount.
Visit to the local market (optional)
Italy and many other Mediterranean countries have big street markets. They are part of the culture and are held 2 or 3 days every week, usually in the morning.
In Como there is a big and typical market each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday where local producers sell their own fresh and seasonal products. Italy is great when it comes to fresh fruit and vegetables, as it offers fantastic products all year round. The market experience is a stimulating assault on the senses: the smell of herbs and spices, fresh seafood, fresh cheese – not to mention the dozens of rows of colorful produce! Last but not least, you will experience the cultural flavor of how Italians interact when they go to the market.
You will be welcomed with an appetizer and a glass of prosecco just to set the atmosphere. The menu will include three different recipes (chosen from my blog according to your taste and diet, including a first course, main course and dessert) using fresh seasonal ingredients and will last for 3-4 hrs. A selection of digestivi will be served after dinner.
Where does it take place?
The lesson will be held in a cozy, family environment (my house in Lake Como), so you can truly understand our culture and passion for food. We can eat together all the delicious dishes prepared. It will be a unique and different cooking experience with an Italian family!
Above all expect plenty of good food and many stories to tell. In Italy you live and eat well! Come and cook with me!
