Cooking classes

Description

Authentic and practical cooking classes! Learn the secrets of the traditional piedmontese recipes, guided by a professional chef.

 

 

Our chefs

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.

 

 

Locations

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

 

 

Menus

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 sauceslocal egg-pasta tajarin” or stuffed ravioli or risottoroasted 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:

  • the art of baking bread at home with natural yeast and organic flour;
  • the art of preserving seasonal fruits and vegetables for the winter;
  • how to recognize and use aromatic herbs;

 

 

Market tour

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.
