We will prepare Italian dishes together, I'm a Personal Chef and I'll be happy to share with you my best Italian recipes.
We will use organic ingredients, coming mainly from local farms.
As my home is located in the Ticino Natural Park, you will enjoy the beautiful natural environment and we will have lunch in the wood, literally, enjoying food and complimentary beer or wine.
I speak Italian, English and French, if guests speak different languages, English will be used.
Outside my property we will be able to have a walk in the woods trying to spot the different animals that live in there: foxes, hares, dormouses, wild boars, buzzards, cuckoos, woodpickers etc.
In case of adverse weather conditions lunch will be held in the living room of my home that has large windows overlooking the woods.


The menu will be defined taking into consideration the needs of all participants, we will prepare a three courses menu, in Italy we call
- Primo (Entrée)
- Secondo (Main course)
- Dolce (Dessert)
examples of dishes, prepared using seasonal ingredients:
Pasta, Lasagne, Gnocchi, Ravioli, Risotto, Parmigiana, Caponata, Ossobuco, Involtini, Cannoli, Tiramisù, Panna cotta, Zabaione, etc.

Other than having a little difficulty finding Marco's house in a driving rain storm my wife and I had a wonderful time preparing, cooking and finally eating a three course meal. The cost was extremely reasonable and we would strongly recommend this.
