What you'll do

We will transfer with a shuttle service to a farmhouse in the Garda hinterland where, guided by an expert cook, we will choose the ingredients from the family garden, we will learn how to make tagliatelle and ravioli, we will discover the secrets for a perfect cooking of pasta and we can also learn the recipe of the famous Sbrisolona cake.

For many years I have been organizing experiences for guests on Lake Garda. I'm on the board of the Pro Loco of Desenzano and vice president of Desenzano Tourist Development. My knowledge of the area allows me to offer interesting experiences that are not easily available to tourists on site.

Exceptional kind and Great service by the Zoltan family and their team. We felt very welcome and guidance were on point throughout the entire course. They refreshed our knowledge around the basics of Italian pasta and gave away the small simple secrets that make genuine Italian pasta so wonderful. Not only did Elisa master, the planned recipes she helped with everything from restaurant advices to tips for Italian dishes we make at home. Besides the wonderful food experience the family owns a wine yard that we got to visit and taste a few glasses. Elisa gets our best recommendations and I would recommend everybody interested in Italian food to book this Experiences no Matter the skill level.

This course was very giving in both cookingskills and italian foodculture! Elisa and the other girls at Cascina Maddalena are very kind and welcoming, and they really know what they are doing. A very nice and authentic experience! Gregorio is a good driver, and very friendly. Also he knows a lot about the area, and are willing to share his knowledge and answer any questions you might have.
