Cooking in Milan

Chef for a day

Ready to put your aprons on? Flour, eggs and many other ingredients in our amazing cooking class, finally in dowtown Milano!

Known as the Italian fashion capital, Milan has so much more to offer, such as this fun cooking class where you can prepare your own lunch.

Following the instructions of an experienced local chef, you will be able to cook a delicious Italian meal!

First thing in the morning, you will meet our chef directly at the Milan Central Market, where you will have the opportunity to learn about the local traditional specialties.

Surrounded by colours and flavours of the market stalls full of fresh products, you will see how locals do their shopping. Stroll around and pass by the many vendors to choose from to buy the perfect ingredients to cook your lunch, then finally enter our cooking school.

You’re now ready to put on kitchen clothes! In between lovely breaks to taste some wine, you’ll learn from our chef how to treat all the ingredients skillfully and cook some of the tastiest and most traditional dishes, such as cheese fondue, ragout sauce, fresh handmade pasta and dessert. Finally, you’ll sit down, sip on a well deserved glass of wine and thoroughly enjoy not just any Italian meal, but perhaps one you never thought of: the meal you cooked yourself.

To make this experience yet more indelible in your memories, at the end of the day you will receive an Attendance Certificate, along with a booklet with all the recipes you will have learned from an Italian chef… we’re certain you will enjoy to recreate the same menu for your family and friends!
