I went to the cooking school on the weekend. Met some lovely people who were doing the same class. It was so much fun, especially making everything from scratch. Matteo and Fiona are a lovely couple. I can highly recommend doing a class there. Very much appreciated the fact that that they catered for my garlic allergy.

My hustband and I booked into Mateo's cooking class as the final piece to our holiday and we couldn't have been more delighted. It was like we experienced a little piece of Italy as we learnt the fine art of preparing food from Mateo's home region, Emelia Romagna. Fresh, seasonal ingredients were sourced from the local region and we learnt learnt all the tips and tricks for cooking fresh pasta and other traditonal Italian food just like Mateo had learnt from his grandmother. Mateo was great fun as he kept us engaged with interesting and funny anecodes. The hands-on activities gave us great practical experience. It was also such excellent value as we got to eat each course with Italian wine at an elegantly set table rich with rustic charm. We were also treated to delightful service offered by Mateo's wife, Fiona. She welcomed us with a cup of their fabulous coffee and served the wine. They we both so friendly and hospitable - sitting us with us while we ate and happily conversed about things of mutual interest. We highly recommend the class (be sure to book - class size is only 8!). We'll definitely be back to learn another menu as I believe the class content changes regularly.

We did a cooking class with Matteo who is a personable fellow who loves his food. His wife was very lovely also and made the best coffee. We basically got to make our own spaghetti which was fun and something that have wanted to learn for a while now. I will be definitely buying a pasta maker now. The rest of the food Matteo made while showing us how to make it. We got a recipe booklet with the recipes that were made on the day and I have made the lamb ragu twice. The beauty of this recipe is that there are very few ingredients but it is so yummy.
This class has reignited my love of cooking and I have made some yummy dishes since. Would highly recommend. If you haven't got time to do the class I would recommend stopping in for coffee and a delicious cake/doughnut.

Throw out your preconceptions about Australian restaurants - this one is very different!
We live locally and often take visitors out for a taste of the Barossa. This occasion we had friends from Scotland and wanted something different for their last day in the Barossa - something to get them back - soon! We choose well with Casa Carboni.
The service was friendly - we were seated at a long table - another group were at the other end - far enough away as to not impede our enjoyment. It was a set share menu and was broad enough in tastes and ingredients to ensure all our taste buds were tantilised. I particularly enjoyed the wild rabbit terrine while my wife made short work of the grilled eggplant. The heated baby camenbert cheese from Barossa Valley Cheese Co (next door) left us all licking our plates. I am not a mushroom fan but I cleaned up my serve of the Porcini Risotto.
Matteo (the Italian master of the kitchen) explained the simple basics of each dish. We could watch him preparing each dish in the adjoining section where he conducts cooking classes.
They are restricted to selling only imported wines which made it somewhat difficult to select a suitable bottle. We were recommended a rose which turned out to be VERY dry and more orange than pink - not what we expected but it went well with the food - certainly not overpowering the subtle fresh flavours of our dishes.
If you are looking for something outside the square then check out Casa Carboni for lunch while taking in the Barossa

Casa Carboni was our introduction to the Barossa Valley. Arriving on a Sunday afternoon without a booking we were treated to a magestic afternoon of delightful food, wine and service.

Casa Carboni is a mix of retail store and cafe. It also offers cooking classes however we didn't have the opportunity on this occasion.

Sitting at a long communal table we experienced two courses of delightful food (dessert was an option but we declined), combined with quality imported wines and excellent service.

Meals were produced in eyesight of the table in an open kitchen and gave the impression of joining good friends in their personal home. Both my partner and I commented as we read the days newspapers at the table whilst waiting for our meal that we felt like invited lunch guests, not simply paying customers.

Adding to the flavoursome food, wine was imported from Italy and matched perfectly. Given the region, some wines from Boutique Vineyards in the Barossa would make a nice addition however the imports did not fail to impress.

Casa Carboni proved to be the perfect start to a great week of holidays and a location I'd happily recommend.

We could not have asked for a better instructor! From the markets before class through to the end of the day, Matteo was a font of information. He is clearly passionate about his food and can explain even the most difficult concepts in such a way that I feel confident to try them myself. We had a four course feast including veal, gnocchi, ravioli and dessert. I can't wait to try and replicate the dishes myself! Definitely worth the time.

My partner and I did a 2 day cooking school with Matteo and his wife Fiona and had the most amazing time. They are so in love with food and cooking fantastic Italian cuisine that we just wanted to go back for more, Matteo is an incredible chef and so good at his job and a wonderful teacher.
I just couldn't believe how easy and enjoyable he made making pasta be, from gnocchi , green tortellini, ravioli filled with braised beef , risotto alla Parmigiana to biscotti with sabajon simply brilliant, for me to be able to create dishes like this after only 2 days at the school is astonishing. I would recommending Casa Carboni cooking school to anyone who has a passion for pasta.
Thank you so much Fiona & Matteo for your hospitality.

My husband and I enrolled in this cooking class as a treat during our visit to the Barossa. We really enjoyed it. We learnt how to make pasta and gnocchi from scratch which was great fun and we have since tried it at home (with less success!). There were 8 students in the class which meant it was really hands on - we all got to have a go at doing everything. Afterwards we got to sample our cooking at a sit down luncheon. The class was 3 hrs long plus lunch. There was an option to start the class an hour earlier at the local Barossa markets were Matteo (the chef) took you around the different stalls choosing the fare for our class. All in all a great experience which I highly recommend to all budding masterchefs.

My husband and I attended Matteo's cooking school for the day and what an experience it was!! Matteo takes you on a true authentic cooking journey that is second to none. The coffee was spot on, the wine was perfectly suited to the food and the hospitality of Matteo and Fiona was warm and inviting. We will most certainly back again, next time with my mother... To learn about portion sizing!
To anyone considering this cooking class, skip a day of vineyard visiting to have this cooking experience, you definitely won't regret it!

This is a great little Enoteca in Angaston!. Booked for lunch and received excellent fresh food and quality wine all whilst sitting in a relaxed environment watching the cooking school. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for fresh, great tasting, simple food (pasta) matched with quality Italian wines.
