Enjoy Lake Como through a unique experience, cook in a professional kitchen!


Our experience will take place in a beautiful family-run restaurant in a small and charming village of Lake Como. It is not only a cooking class, but a way to share some knowledges with the passionate owners about food and wine. Only organic, fresh and seasonal ingredients are used in the kitchen; the restaurant has also a small shop dedicated to organic and natural products and a huge variety of natural wines! We will start our day in the morning, at around 10 a. m. We will enjoy a good Italian Espresso, a tea, a cold drink or a fruit juice before starting cooking. What are we going to prepare? We will cook a main course (pasta with Bolognese for example) and we will knead and bake a cake. When our food is ready, we will enjoy a nice meal, matching it with a selection of good wines.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were delighted with our tour, and hosts Carlotta and Denis. Carlotta arranged driver to meet us at ferry terminal in Menaggio and drive us to meet Carlotta and returned us to the ferry for our return to Bellagio. All went very well. The cooking class was fun and informative and food, the best! We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lake Como region. We wish Carlotta and Denis every success and blessings. from "Australia" Sue & Phillip Saunders
