There’s a place in Bologna, Italy where your cooking holidays will turn into an unforgettable experience. A place where the typical cuisine of Bologna meets the craftsmanship of a long standing experienced chef. We are talking about CIBO (Culinary Institute of BOlogna), the cooking classes hosted by Stefano Corvucci and his staff of English speaking Italian chefs. Enjoy creating hand-made pastas, and preparing authentic Italian food during a half day, full day and multi-day classes session. CIBO is the ultimate Bologna Cooking School.
If you are planning cooking holidays in Italy, at CIBO you will find courses that meet every kind of budget. So follow us in this exciting journey through the quintessence of Italian cuisine. CIBO is unique because there is NO SET MENU! You and the chef/instructor will discuss at the market the day’s menu based on ingredient availability and seasonality!
“We don’t teach recipes, you learn techniques!”. This is the way CIBO imagines your cooking holidays. First of all at CIBO, your instructor questions and listens to your desires: what is your favorite Italian dish? What is the recipe you’ve always been dreaming of? Starting from that, your chef/instructor will simply give you the techniques to cook Italian recipes with your own hands and to redo or reinvent them once you arrive back home.
At CIBO you will cook in a professional kitchen inside one of the most popular restaurants in Bologna (Trattoria Del Rosso). But first of all you will have a lot of fun! Also , if you choose a half day, full day or multi-day cooking holiday, the chef will also take you to the old food market in the medieval downtown Bologna to find the freshest seasonal ingredients that will make your dishes unique. Maybe this is the most emotional time you will have at CIBO: you will walk around narrow and historical streets, you will hear local people’s voices, you will smell the aromas coming out of greengrocer and deli shops. Spread the word: CIBO is the best way to share your passion for Italian cuisine.
The cooking holidays created by Stefano Corvucci meet any kind of budget and any of your wishes. You can choose to make Ravioli or Tagliatelle in a few hours, but you can find also professional courses in case you want to be a real Chef! To contact CIBO it’s very easy: visit their cooking classes page and choose the course you like the most. Their very friendly staff will reply soon to start your Italian cooking dream. Don’t waste your time learning recipes, learn techniques and choose CIBO for your ultimate Italian cooking experience!
