Regional Culinary Specialites
Our regional cooking classes explore Italy’s various regional culinary traditions; your cooking class can be tailor-made to explore a region of your choice in depth.
Choose Tuscany with its hearty ribollita, roast game, fabulous Chianti wines. Or perhaps Sicily with its Arab and Greek influenced cuisine: couscous, bottarga, sarde beccafico, tuna and swordfish dishes and cannoli. Maybe you prefer the more delicate dishes from the northern regions of Italy: risotto recipes are many and varied and great to explore, like that from the Po valley, the most fertile area of cultivation in Italy and not surprisingly the area where rice consumption is at its highest.
Italy has twenty regions each with unique culinary customs and food. You pick the region and we’ll explore it and prepare some of its best dishes, accompanied by the region’s wines.
