When visiting Milan, learn the secrets of Italian home cooking with a hands-on 2-hour lesson in the private kitchen of a local chef. Choose your menu from six options that represent Italy's diverse cuisine, which could include mozzarella-filled zucchini flowers, eggplant parmigiana, and tiramisu. Then, sit down with your new friends to enjoy your homemade lunch or dinner accompanied by Italian wine. It’s a great way to learn about local cuisine and culture in a friendly, small-group environment.
What to Expect
Meet Aurora and Elisa at 10.30 am or 6pm in their home in central Milan . Over a drink and snack we first chat about the daily menu and get to know each other. You are then going to prepare four recipes from different Italian regions. Aurora and Elisa pays attention to choose recipes with ingredients that you can buy everywhere, not just in Italy.

We will prepare as a starter fresh hand-made pasta such as tagliatelle, milanese risotto withsaffron,lasagna, gnocchi, ravioli and different sauces which are easy to do again at home (bolognese, pesto, fish sauce). Italy has a lot great vegetables so we can do filled eggplant or filled tomatoes or peperoni,caponata, asparagus,grilled radicchio,bruschetta. For the main course we will prepare meat( veal ossobuco,milanese, lamb or fish from another Italian region, yeast products (pizza, panzerotti, gnocco fritto) and for dessert we will prepare Sicilian cannoli, tiramisu, panna cotta or profitterols. You can contact the chefs to see what's the menu and may be you can choose the menu if you are the first one to book that day. VEGETARIAN,GLUTEN FREE AND LACTOSE FREE WELCOME

After 2.5 hours of team work, we can enjoy our masterpieces at lunch or dinner accompanied with good Italian wine .  

We finish the dinner with a good espresso coffee and your cooking certificate to remember this special day.
