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.
If you love food and are travelling to Milan, take this class! It is a highly enjoyable way to spent a morning and learn new things and enjoy a delicious meal you make yourself! Clara is amazing and very warm and knowledgeable! I am not much of a cook myself, but i love food, and now i feel confident that i can recreate an amazing meal once i get back home! It was a delicious experience! I will definitively take another one of her classes when i come back to Milan :)
Had a fantastic time with Chef Clara! Thank you for greeting me into your home and teaching me some Italian deliciousness! It was a great tour to take on my own, while travelling solo, and a great way to bring a little Italy back to my family.
This was by far the highlight of our trip to Milan! I attended the class with my husband on our honeymoon. Clara taught us how to cook simple yet delicious Italian food that is easy enough to replicate at home. The food was exceptional! This class is highly recommended, you won't regret it!
Clara is great. What a good time we had, it's like being around family. I highly recommend.
The cooking class at Clara's home was wonderful. It was our first time making homemade pasta and we plan to try it out again at home using her recipe booklet. Her home is beautiful and welcoming! We made so much food that she sent us home with leftovers. Most importantly, the food turned out delicious!!
I loved my cooking class experience in Milan with Clara. We had an international group which made it very enjoyable. Clara is very well prepared as a teacher. She had all of the ingredients measured and available. We all learned, participated, and laughed all afternoon. It was a very hands on class and I have always thought that a person learns very well by participating. It was great.
