Authentic and practical cooking classes! Learn the secrets of the traditional piedmontese recipes, guided by a professional chef.
Classes can be held by experienced professional chefs or by a local “mamma” who are willing to share their old practices with our guests. Most of our hosts speak fluent English; if not, a tour guide will help translate and provide additional commentary.
Cooking venues can be professional kitchens of restaurants or inside an “agriturismo” (holiday farm), private homes or cooking schools equipped with individual stations for each student.
Most of our classes are held in the countryside and rarely in the centre of a major city: therefore, transportation is needed to get to these places and the cost of it is never included in the rate of the class
Ingredients are strictly seasonal. Menus generally include four courses and change accordingly to the season, number of participants and time available. Some examples of recipes, meant just to give an idea, might be: vegetable flan (similar to a soufflé’) topped with cheese fondue or other sauces; local egg-pasta “tajarin” or stuffed ravioli or risotto; roasted pork with hazelnut sauce; traditional “bonet” (similar to a flan made from eggs, milk, amaretti cookies and cocoa powder) or Moscato pudding.
Other themed cooking classes available upon request:
Enrich your cooking experience by requesting a guided tour of a produce market where you can purchase some of the ingredients needed for the class. The tour can be held by the chef or by one of our specialized tour guides. Please note that open air markets are available only on specific days of the week.
