What You Can Expect

Italian Cooking Class in Milan

Make a decadent dessert like tiramisu during your cooking class in Milan

Begin your cooking class by discussing the menu for that day while sipping tea or coffee with the chef and your fellow food lovers. The Milan cooking class takes place at the private home of Chef Clara on Piazza VI Febbraio where you'll learn new cooking techniques and the secrets to what makes the cuisine of Milan so delicious. 

Make four traditional dishes, the menu depending on what is in season. All the ingredients are purchased at the local market. 

Start making the course, which will be homemade risotto, pasta or gnocchi. Then move on to making the second course, a heart meat or vegetable dish such as ossobuco (braised veal), saltimbocca (veal and prosciutto) or a frittata. Top off your classic Italian meal with a dessert such as tiramisu, gelato, panna cotta, fruit cake or chocolate cake.

When the entire meal has been completed, the tasty phase begins: pull up a chair to the table and indulge in your four-course meal. Sip wine which has been selected to complement the food you're eating. At the end of the meal, get an extra perk up with a shot of Italian espresso. 

Then leave the chef's home with a booklet of the recipes you prepared that day, as well as a certificate acknowledging your participation in the class.

One of the highlights of my trip! If you are in Italy, learn some authentic Italian recipes with authentic Italian Chef Clara. Wonderful experience to take home with you and share with your friends and family. Meet new people that share the love of food and cooking.
Clara is a a very welcoming and gracious host, sharing her home, knowledge and expertise willingly. This was an organized, informative class that even seasoned cooks can learn from. I highly recommend this fun class, I will definitely take another class with Clara the next time in Italy.
Thank you Clara! Lola

Clara's cooking class was an amazing experience and a highlight during my recent trip to Milan. The menu and dishes we prepared were authentic and easy to execute. Her knowledge and expertise in both food and wine exceeded my expectations. I returned home to CA with all of the recipes and plan to recreate the dishes very soon. Thanks Clara !
