Cooking in Milan


The magic of Italian cuisine

Are you in Milan and are you tired of visiting museums and walking around the city? Are you looking for a fun activity for you and your family? This Private Cooking class is the perfect experience for you!

As you know, a large part of Italian tradition also goes by the food culture, and for a day you can discover all the secrets of local cuisine directly from an Italian chef at your private disposal.

You will meet him directly inside the Central Market where, among various shops of local products, he will show you how he himself chooses the freshest ingredients for the preparation of the dishes; then you will reach the nice cooking location where you will start preparing your lunch with your own hands!

The private tour option will create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere with your chef and will allow you to fully enjoy the experience by being able to ask him all the questions that will satisfy your curiosity about the tricks of the trade.

While cooking, you will also have the chance to taste some local cheese with a well deserved glass of wine.

You will learn how from simple ingredients such as eggs and flour a tasty fresh handmade pasta can be born, and you’ll prepare the perfect sauces to accompany it. A typical Italian meal cannot end without a dessert so, once prepared, you can finally sit comfortably at the table and enjoy everything you have made.

At the end of this private experience, you will receive an Attendance Certificate to bring back home together with all the recipes you have learned!
