Yes, agree with the previous post. It's well worth it -wonderful day. Plan to stay around and tour this town too. Great shopping and beautiful vistas.
Moreno, I am planning a trip to Lake Como in June of this year. I would like to set up a cooking class for my husband and myself. We would like to book the class on June 13, 2017. Please let me know if that is available and the price. Thank you. Celine Croce

Well worth it, highlight of our trip. Keep trying. He will respond. Best of luck.
We took Moreno's cooking class in October and unfortunately didn't get any recipes to take home. I sent him an email but didn't get an answer. If anyone has the recipe for the potatoes au gratin with the Parmesan cheese and cream or has a good remembrance of how he made this dish I would love to make it for Christmas. Anyone have it???

All I remember about it is his comment "and lots and lots of cream"! I'd say email him again...sometimes it takes a few times....also....he posts some recipes on his website.
