We have chefs coming from all parts of the world with a variance of skill levels. We will discuss with you prior to your class, your present level of experience and ascertain what skills, techniques or menu items you would like to explore. Working together we will design a custom-tailored program to meet your needs and expectations.
You will work for one day, side by side with a professional restaurant Italian chef. Meet at CIBO then we take an historical tour on route to the Bologna market area. Your English speaking, chef/guide, will inform you about the history & culture of Bologna; the Emilia Romagna region. Before entering the market pause at a local cafe for cappuccino and brioche for a typical Italian breakfast, where you will discuss and plan the day's menu.
The dishes you prepare are based on product availability, student preferences and food seasonality. All classes include learning how to make handmade pasta using an authentic matterello (38 inch rolling pin) and a variety of ragus. Do you want to learn a specific dish? Email usyour requests and we will do our best to include it --our goal is not to meet your needs but to exceed your expectations!
You will be having lunch, a time to relax and then dinner-- lunch and dinners include unlimited local wine (drink responsibly).
You will enjoy learning authentic, healthy recipes and cooking techniques. You will enjoy market visits, meal planning, fun-filled cooking classes and best of all, each day you will eat what you created! We prepare lunch and dinner and eat together.
After lunch, relax and resume early afternoon for more hours of cooking lessons. Students will receive private access to the recipes posted on the internet so note-taking is not necessary.Our deluxe professional program will be intensive and geared to your individual needs.We can recommend several hotels in the area. You can book the hotel directly or email us and we can make your arrangements.
