About
Cooking Classes Italian cuisine. Available all days upon reservation. We will prepare Italian traditional dishes together, I'm a Personal Chef and I'll be happy to share with you my best recipes. Friends that do not want to take cooking classes may also only enjoy meals. We will use organic ingredients and we will have lunch in the wood, literally. In case of adverse weather conditions lunch will be held in the living room of my home that has large windows overlooking the woods. Outside the property you will be able to have a walk in the woods trying to spot the different animals that live in there: foxes, hares, dormouses, wild boars, buzzards, cuckoos, woodpickers etc. I speak Italian, English and French. Nearby places to visit: Rocca di Angera, Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso.

Marco gave me and my whole family a great Italian cooking experience which lasted the whole evening. He came to the house we rented with our family in Lago Maggiore. He brought all of his kitchen gear with him, plus the ingredients for the food we were going to prepare. He organized the menu we were going to prepare and was open for other suggestions. Besides that, he was a very nice and was very helpful. He helped with cleaning as well the end of the night, even though that wasn’t necessary at all! Thanks again Marco for the nice night!!

I was offered this course as a surprise birthday present. Marco was very welcoming, accommodating and patient, and taught me several nice tips and tricks for tasty vegan cooking. I invited a couple of friends to join us for the meal and they loved it too. The location is wonderful - a lovely spacious house surrounded by woods. All in all a lovely experience!

The experience consists of several stages
You reach a house in the heart of a nature reserve, in the rain, around you trees in the woods and nature
You go into a well-kept home, into a warm and cozy kitchen and cook fine ingredients for four hours, you cook a wonderful meal, as you agreed with the chef
Then sit down to eat in a wonderful atmosphere, with good wine and a window to the view.
Chef Bosco is very kind, welcoming, my family and I had a great day.

We expected more, it was very upset, we expected to find the full menu and have the oportunity to choose diferent dishes, but everyone of us get the same dishes, a risoto, two small chicken rolls filled covered with tomato sauce and some sicilian desert.
It was veri difficult to find the place, no signs and when finally we arrive we had to use the car horn and wait. Marco beguin to cook when we arrive and we wait more than 30 minutes to get the food.

Marco was such a nice host, very patient with our levels of cooking, and answered all questions we had about food and Italy in general! For the menu, he asked a couple days in advance what we would like and adapted a 3 course menu for us: ravioli filled with mushroom ricotta, veal as the main dish (Involtini), and for dessert - classic tiramisu.

We had a wonderful time learning from him and eating the delicious food. We stayed from 10a to about 4p so I would recommend blocking out a large portion of the day for the activity.

Great hospitality and unique experience.

Definately we recommend the cooking session with Marco. Couple of days before we got the menu proposal, the whole communication and planning was so easy. On the day Marco picked us up, and from there the amazing cooking began! It was hours of preparing food, talking about food and then in the end enjoying the food and the company! In between we got some tips when cooking or when buying ingredients, we tasted some cheese and wine and generally enjoyed our time there. And the eating part is taking place in the woods, which made it even more special :) thanks Marco, it was a lovely day with you!

Being somewhat disorganized my wife and I only booked a cooking class with Marco 36 hours in advance but even then he e-mailed us to ask what we would like to cook (Pasta or risotto, meat or fish, cake or spoon desert) and he had everything ready.
It was poring with rain that day and we had some difficulty finding the house but after one phone call to him and his neighbor pointing us in the right direction we made it to his delightful art-filled house in the woods.

It turned out that we were the only ones there that day which allowed us lots of time to chat. He explains everything and sends the recipes by e-mail making it very easy to replicate what he demonstrates.

We had a delightful three course lunch of the food we had cooked and all this at a cost only slightly above what we would have paid for a similar meal in a restaurant.

Highly recommended.

This was one of our trip’s highlights. Before the session Marco kept in touch with us and he was easy to get a hold of with any questions. Marco’s hospitality and skill made the session wonderful. The food was incredible and the setting for both the class and the lunch were perfect. We will be recommending him to any friends or family that travel to the area.

Marco prepared a very delicious 3-course dinner for our birthday celebration. We were very impressed especially with the gluten-free gnocchi and the panna cotta. Can very much recommend!
