Home cooking and chefs

Meet our friendly, English-speaking hosts and chefs for informal and fun classes and enjoy your creations at the table.

 

Our popular home cooking experiences are hosted by local “mamma” who are willing to share their old practices in their own kitchen. You get the chance to enter a private home and spend half-day in a cozy and warm setting.

 

Alternatively, classes can be led by professional chefs  in restaurants or in farmhouses.

 

 

Locations

Most cooking venues are located in the countryside, therefore transport is needed to get there and the cost of a driver is not 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. Our menu typically features one “antipasto” (starter), first course, main, dessert.

 

Some examples of recipes, meant just to give an idea, might be: vegetable soufflé topped with cheese fondue; local egg-pasta “tajarin” or risotto; roasted pork with hazelnut sauce or braised beef cooked slowly in wine; traditional “bonet” (similar to a flan made from eggs, milk, amaretti cookies and  cocoa powder).

Cooking class in a Barolo winery

Truly an exclusive experience which combines a traditional Piedmontese cooking class with a wine tasting of 5 wines including Barolo and Barbaresco. The location is a Barolo winery located a few miles outside of Alba, which is set up with a professional, but warm, kitchen where the family and the chef will make you feel at home.

 

The menu of the class (and of the meal) includes a starter, a pasta course, a main course and dessert. During the cooking class you can start the tasting of the first 2 wines, while the remaining three will be served during the meal (lunch or dinner). The experience starts at 10:30am or 4:30pm.

 

Included activities during or after the cooking class:

  • visit the aging room where barrels are kept to produce Barolo wine;
  • go outside and pick fresh aromatic herbs or take a walk in the vineyards;
