When visiting Bergamo, learn the secrets of Italian home cooking with a hands-on lesson in the private kitchen of a family in Bergamo.
It’s a great way to learn about Italian cuisine and culture and the time we are going to spend together will be fun, fascinating, friendly and profitable.
In addition of enjoying the meal you've just learned to prepare it and once you're back home you will be able to recreate a small piece of your holiday.
The cooking classes and the lunches are held in my family home or directly at your holiday rental.


Over a drink and snack, we first chat about the daily menu and get to know each other.
You are then going to prepare some typical Italian recipes, using the freshest seasonal ingredients possible, and then basic cooking techniques to simply enhance the natural flavour of the food.
We could prepare fresh hand-made pasta such as tagliatelle, casoncelli, lasagna and different sauces which are easy to do again at home (bolognese, pesto, fish sauce).
As an alternative, if you don't like pasta, we could prepare some traditional meat or seafood dishes or yeast products (pizza, focaccia, panzerotti)

The menu also includes:
- Welcome drinks (prosecco and snacks)
- Starters (local cheeses, cold cuts and vegetables)
- Wine
- Dessert: Sicilian cannoli, tiramisu, panna cotta, babà with limoncello, strudel or profiteroles
- Coffee and liqueurs

After 2-3 hours of teamwork, we can enjoy our masterpieces at dinner accompanied with good Italian wine.
During the dinner, I will tell you more about the origin and history of the different dishes and explain the wine choice for dinner.
We finish the dinner or lunch with good Italian liquor (grappa, limoncello, liquirizia, amaro,...) and an espresso coffee.


The cooking classes are held in my family home.
It is 10 minutes far from the city centre.
On-demand, a tour through the local fruit and vegetable markets, a stop by some Bergamasco speciality shops are possible.
It’s a great way to learn about Italian cuisine and culture and the time we are going to spend together will be fun, fascinating and friendly.
