I am a founding member, together with my wife, of the brand Eatsperience Madrid - Creating a Culinary Experience: I dedicate myself to creating unforgettable experiences related to food, I have food handling certificate and I have worked as a cook in several places in Italy and abroad. I graduated in translation, I speak Italian, Spanish, French, and English. After many years in a tourism company, I decided to get closer to the people and share my passions and my knowledge. My wife and I devised menus, collaborations, and varied experiences so that good food is accompanied by other interesting and fun activities.

We like to fuse styles and flavors and meet new people and cultures.

Meeting Isotta and cooking together has been like traveling to Italy: tradition and soul. We chatted, had a good wine and made gnocchi like she did with her grandmother, we drank more delicious wine and enjoyed a very tasty dinner! I fully recommend the experience if you are looking for authenticity and real flavors, as well as having a fun time in good company!

Quería participar a una clase de cocina italiana, pero no me esperaba salir de ese piso con nuevas amigas. Isotta te transmite su pasión para la cocina de manera tan natural, que siguiendo sus indicaciones llegas a preparar unos ñoquis deliciosos sin casi darte cuenta. Mientras amasas te cuenta historias de su tradición culinaria en su familia y casi me parecía estar en casa de su abuela, fue una experiencia increíble! Cocinamos los ñoquis de dos maneras diferentes y acompañados por dos salsas deliciosas, el postre era muy rico también! Isotta y su mujer son dos personas muy abiertas, hemos reido y charlado mucho en total confianza. Repetiría sin dudarlo! Una cosa más, antes de empezar a trabajar nos acogieron con un aperitivo italiano!! Gracias chicas, ¡ha sido lo mejor!

5 star experience-Amazing!!! I highly recommend - great couple - delicious foods great company! I feel like a Michelin chef! I also feel like I could do this at home. Great meal- fabulous conversation and great stories- great wine and the fresh strawberry ice cream for dessert was perfect! Great for all ages and group sizes! I wish I could take more courses with them - but sadly I have to leave Madrid. Thanks for a great night!!

There was something magical about the experience of sitting down together to prepare a simple dish of gnocchi and talk about our lives. This was one of the more enjoyable experiences of our European holiday. We agree with all of the other reviews about the quality of the welcome, the instruction and the food. What the other reviews fail to mention is how GREAT this experience is for children! My two sons loved the hands on experience and chatting with each other and Isotta - nothing was forced. A few hours later they were still buzzing and asking if they could do more cooking at home. This is not the place to learn about complex cooking techniques or Spanish cuisine; it is so much more!

It all started with the warmest welcome to their cozy home and a brief introduction about how everything started. A bit after, Isotta took us back in time to her childhood and the way her grandmother has cooked for decades (you must experience this if you want to learn great Italian cooking tips, is not a class but a walkthrough Authentic Italian cooking). After learning about what she was cooking for us, we enjoyed a delicious meal paired with wine tastefully selected by Isotta and Andrea. Dessert is a must! Who knew that basic ingredients with clean accents are all you need to finish up one of the best evenings ever. On a different note, they are both very knowledgeable about Madrid and things to do around the area. They will absolutely point you in the right direction. Don’t worry about taking pictures or writing down anything. You will get an email from Isotta with pictures, tips and all the recipes cooked during the evening. I would 100% do it again and I 100% recommend this place.
