What to Expect
Chef Mary will welcome you to her private kitchen where you’ll have the opportunity to cook traditional dishes in a relaxed, familiar environment. You will have the chance to pick the fresh herbs and vegetables you'll need for the cooking session directly from her vegetable garden and use the best quality olive oil made from my olive trees!

During the session you will make 4 tasty recipes – which depend on the day and season (ravioli, tagliatelle, cavatelli, fresh tomato sauces, eggplant parmigiana, tiramisu, panna cotta,  for example) all with fresh organic ingredients. Once everything is cooked, you’ll sit around her kitchen table and enjoy your meal paired with a good wine. As per Italian tradition, an espresso will conclude this adventure.

At the end of the day you’ll receive your Italian cooking Diploma and a gift to remember this special experience. You’ll keep receiving our newsletter and updates on recipes, menus, tips and secrets of the Italian cuisine, and may count on support if you need help in recreating recipes.
