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.

Matteo and Fiona Carboni run a very authentic and highly impressive Italian cooking school in the town of Angaston, Barossa Valley. Small group format, with a visit to the local Barossa Farmers Market as the sourcing prelude, leads into a 5-6 hour cooking school in a very well kitted out, but small and functional kitchen. Their kitchen is attached to the small cafe style eatery, which serves lovely imported wines and has a small selection of high end kitchen equipment for sale. Matteo's enthusiasm and warmth is very infectious - and his stories of growing up in Italy and seeing what his family would make and eat, add to the authenticity of the experience. The recipes are based on seasonal and simple, but very flavour focussed techniques, that are easy to replicate at home. All recipes are well explained and are also provided by email for future reference. His ability to get you to perform the tasks and get the very yummy results, make him a wonderful teacher to learn from. To then sit down as a small group and enjoy what you have made, with some wonderful wine, rounds off a lovely class. I would highly recommend this to anyone who prides themselves on being a discerning foodie, who wants to learn from a great teacher and then put it into practice. Great experience and excellent value for money.

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.

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.

I am not much of a cook but my partner cooks some amazing dishes, to say i learned a lot is an understatement and my partner added more tricks to her repertoire, the food we all cooked was super yummy, as were the international wines we had with our lunch

We had a group of 9 Adults spend 6 hours learning how to cook authentic Italian food, preparing it and most importantly eating it. I originally thought what are we going to do for 6 hours but the time flew by and we ate the most splendid food that we had prepared. Matteo is passionate about his food and the way in which you incorporate it into you lifestyle.
We had a four course meal including antipasto, gnocchi, pasta and a desert. We cooked all except the antipasto.
I have since prepared the gnocchi and have applied the tips that he taught us. Well worth the time if you are looking for something a little different and also want to learn some simple but valuable tips in Italian cooking
