Overview

Since 1999 offering Market-to-Table cooking classes, both day classes and half day classes. My classes are for very small numbers, they fill up quickly. The first months to fill are April/May and September/October so plan ahead! I offer home cooking in a well air-conditioned home kitchen making updated, well plated, traditional Italian meals and my apartment is right in the heart of the historic city. Beginners, experienced cooks, professional chefs, families with children all welcome! I do my utmost to give you a memorable day and a great culinary experience and teach all the classes personally. And if you or your travelling partner/s don't fancy cooking, I offer a morning market food tour ending in a light lunch to introduce you to Bologna, its history and its food. Any questions, just email to ask!

Sorry missed this, I do not expect to find requests for bookings here. People usually send a Trip Advisor request or else they send an enquiry from my website. My apologies!
