Clara was a wonderful host, sharing her home and amazing talents to teach us how to make a traditional Northern Italian meal. She was also able to tell us where we could get the ingredients we used back in the States. We have already put her risotto instructions to good use! Our classmates started out as strangers but ended up as friends sharing a wonderful meal together!
Clara was great! Warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and skilled. It is clear that she enjoys teaching and made sure that we understood the different regional ingredients and made sure that everyone in the group participated. I would definitely do this again in Milan when I return.
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!
