Hands on cooking classes with our professional Chefs right in the heart of the Italian Food Valley: Emilia Romagna.


These classes are designed to show you the secrets of Italian cuisine. Secrets that spring from the diverse histories of the country’s various places, all  of which boast numerous regional and local specialties. Qualified chefs will  help you prepare superb dishes, step by step.
The basic techniques are learned ‘over the stove‘ and at the end of each  session there is the opportunity to taste exquisite combinations of food and wine.
The whole process is then summarized in a cookbook for you to take away, which lists the techniques you have used and developed.
Our classes are held in our state-of-the-art fully equipped professional kitchen (with twelve individual workstations, a complete roster of utensils and appliances, and …a magnificent view on the famous Bologna roofs).
