Beautiful setting, Italian atmosphere and best imported Italian ingredients were used and I learnt so many special tips about cooking Italian food. Why go to Italy, the best Italian cooking school is in Cape Town. Emma's knowledge of Italian food is outstanding, very beautiful experience. Your mussel starter was delicious and I enjoyed your funghi risotto very much. Thank you... More

What an incredible evening. Inspiring, motivating, fun, laid back and absolutely informative. It could have been a night out with friends, but it was only afterwards you realise how much you've learnt and that this was a course!!! Emma's way of pulling you into the kitchen and making you feel part of the process and confident to experience it yourself... More

I joined four others for an evening of Italian cooking in Emma's beautiful home kitchen this week. It was a warm, intimate, leisurely experience, very different from the rather impersonal, standardised offerings one finds at some other cookery schools in Cape Town. Emma is a passionate and highly discerning chef, who ensures that each dish is absolutely perfectly prepared for... More

We gave, as a gift, an evening course with Emma to some friends. Of course we had to go along to! What a special evening it was - the food that Emma produced and that we helped to prepare was really superb. Freshest ingredients, herbs from her garden and who would have known that you can cook risotto in advance?... More
