Culinary Workshop on Lake Como

Private Residence
Lake Como, Lombardia, Italy


250.00 EUR pp

Lake Como has always been a popular retreat for aristocrats and the wealthy crowd since Roman times, and holds many artistic and cultural gems. Still widely regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, these days it is home to the rich and famous.

The author of a recently released Italian cook book in the English language, and a native of Lake Como, is offering informal lessons on authentic, traditional, and healthy Italian cuisine, the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, history and culture. Cooking is Paola’s passion that has been passed down to her from generations. Immerse yourself in the Italian lifestyle and culture through food, and enjoy an experience for all the senses…

This experience begins with a guided exploration of the colorful Como street market, where you will follow Paola while she selects seasonal ingredients needed for the menu from her trusted local food suppliers.

The lesson will be held in her home, and will include two to three recipes (depending on the recipes you choose) using fresh seasonal ingredients.

An antipasto and a glass of prosecco will set the mood, but above all expect plenty of good food and many stories to tell!

Note: This experience requires a minimum booking of 2 people.

The cooking class was FABULOUS. Paola was gorgeous – talk about an Italian Glamazon. She was so generous and gracious and interesting. The markets were great and it was so gorgeous going back to her house to cook. She was so easy to spend time with and her daughter also interacted with us which was great. At the end we all sat together and ate lunch. It was fantastic. I would highly recommend it.
