Having been to many cooking classes I must say this is one of the best. Clara, our instructing chef, warmly welcomed us in to her home. The class was fun, organized and everything we created was delicious. We left feeling we could recreate menu items with ease at home. Highlight of our trip.
My 12 year old and I had an amazing experience and learned many new skills in cooking Italian food. Clara was so kind and patient. It was a pure joy and I recommend it to anyone who loves to cook and eat. The food was delicious!
This class was one of the highlights of our vacation. My Mom, who doesn't particularly like cooking, said that this class was her favorite activity on our trip. Clara is extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher, two things that don't always go hand-in-hand. My wife commented on how impressed she was with how Clara corrected mistakes. She stopped you, got you on the right track, but never made you feel like you had done anything wrong. We had a great time, learned a ton, and made some amazing food. We've even purchased new cooking equipment and are trying new recipes today the day after we got home.
Cannot recommend this course highly enough.
It was a amazing experience. Clara is so talented and her kitchen was organized very well. I enjoyed the class very much. I will definitely take another class with Clara when I visit Milano again.
I really enjoyed cooking Italian pasta and dolci. Clara is so kind and patient. She makes a good atmosphere so that we can feel free to ask her, relax and enjoy cooking. Highly recommended!
Awesome time with Chef Clara in her home, great instruction, amazing food, you will not be disappointed!
My wife and i attended Claras Cooking Class recently. In reality this was bought as a present for my wife who really enjoys cooking. However, Clara totally invloved me in all stages of the meal preparation and cooking of the food. It was really enjoyable. This Class would be suitable for people of all levels and abilities and Clara is very patient and has a great sense of humour. She is also a great teacher and is passionate about food and italian food in particular. At the class we attended we cooked Gnocchi, Tagliatelle, and three sauces and Tiramisu. Best of all we ate it for lunch. A great day. One of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
Clara incredibly talented and thoughtful in her menu selection - showing us the difference between fresh and dried pasta as well as making dough by hand vs. in a mixer. It was great to learn by doing as we measured ingredients with scales, weigh everything!, used a slicing machine, rolled and shaped pasta... while it could have been like a cooking show on TV, Clara brought the kitchen to life.
We learned so much about the history and context of Italian cooking including between northern and southern Italian cuisine rice and polenta vs. pizza and pasta respectively and the ways that Italian cooking mostly from the southern Italy at first translated to the US spaghetti and meatballs is a uniquely American arrival.
The meal - and wines - was more than we could have asked and we can't wait to take our skills home to our own kitchen!
Incredible experience. Very talented chef and was able to share her gift with all of us. Met new friends and all had a great time.
This was an amazing day. Great class taught by a great chef! If I return to Milano I will book another class. If you are a fan of cooking, or have always wanted to learn, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Very hands on, and very informative. Plus you get to eat a great meal that you help prepare. What more can you ask for!
This class was amazing! The teacher is clearly very studied, she has books and books of recipes! I went in thinking we would make something traditional like pizza or pasta but we ended up making some saffron risotto with veal and it was great! It was a great experience for anyone of any cooking level and would definitely recommend!
Clara was well organized and prepared for our class. She spoke English very well and was concerned about hygiene. The class went by so fast while we were having fun. The results were delicious.
Overall I would say that Clara's class was a very pleasant experience. Not only was Clara very knowledge on meal preparation but also the history behind each dish as well. I would highly recommend this class to anybody interested in learning about Italian cooking. Clara was highly understanding and patient with having to do a gluten free menu as well as with students to all different levels and capabilities!
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
Our cooking class with Clara was fantastic! She is knowledgeable, organized, humorous and a great teacher! We learned so much, n0t just how to cook the courses she taught us but also about the regional cuisines of Italy and how to shop etc.. The meal was delicious and we had a marvelous time ! I would highly recommend taking this course with Clara!
Clara was amazing! I really enjoyed my time in her home and felt so welcome. She was informative and attentive to every person in the class, and the food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend this class to anyone!
Clara is so nice. She knows all information I'd like to know.
I enjoyed cooking , eating and talking. That's a great and unforgettable experience for me.
I will definitely take her other class.
The class was fun and the finished product was excellent. The chef allows you to be as active or inactive as you desire. It was the best meal I had in Italy!!!
The cooking class was great. The teacher was very knowledgeable and has a warm, engaging personality.
Clara did a great job, we made 4 wonderful courses in a class with 6 other people. It was fun, informative and very enjoyable. Thank you Clara!
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 !
I took this Cooking Class with my 18 year old niece, and we loved it! Chef Clara was the best! She made it very informative and enjoyable. She is the perfect teach and the perfect host!
Milan is a wonderful city, but definitely what I enjoyed most was the class with Clara, friendly, practical and delicious, it makes it simple to cook Italian food. She makes so easy to learn how to cook the italian food. If I back to Milan I'll take another lesson with Clara.Muchas Gracias! Abrazos!
This ended up being a very cosy morning of cookery with Clara. Just my wife and I on the last day of an excellent long weekend in Milan. This was undoubtedly the highlight of the weekend. We knocked up gnocchi, pizza, pasta alla norma and rather delicious cannoli under Clara's expert eye and then polished it all off over lunch. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful experience!! To spend the morning in a local's home, seeing how everything is made from scratch, learning how to identify authentic Italian cheese and wines, getting to see how it's all done, and how, actually, easy and simple it is, was beyond a fantastic way to spend part of a trip to Milan. Love this class! Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a different, unique, and special experience.
