You will work for two days side by side with a professional English-Speaking, Italian restaurant chef.
First you will 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 and culture of Bologna. Before entering the market to shop, we will pause at a local cafe for cappuccino and brioche for a typical Italian breakfast. Here we will discuss and plan the day's menu.
Our schedule includes lunch, a time to relax and then dinner-- lunch and dinners include unlimited local wine ( please drink responsibly).
The dishes we prepare are based on product availability, student preferences and food seasonality. All classes include learning how to make hand made pasta using an authentic matterello (38 inch rolling pin) and a variety of ragus.
Do you want to learn a specific dish? Email us your requests and we will do our best to include it Our goal is not to meet your needs but to exceed your expectations!
Enjoy learning authentic, healthy recipes and cooking techniques. Have fun with market visits, meal planning, fun-filled cooking classes and best of all, each day, we will eat what we created!After lunch, relax and resume early afternoon for more hours of cooking lessons. We will be preparing both lunch and dinner and eating together.
