What you'll do

In this experience you will learn how to make 2 fundamental pieces of Italian cuisine: pasta and tiramisù! We will prepare homemade spaghetti or tagliatelle in the same way my grandmothers taught us when we were children...and you will learn from us with the same passion and love.
Then we will prepare a yummy tiramisù following the traditional recipe (I am the queen of tiramisù!), and we will eat our masterpieces together sharing our lives and experiences and sipping a good glass of Italian wine.
At the end you will be surrounded by the wonderful taste of the real espresso coffee.
We will use organic and km0 ingredients, such as flour of a local mill, eggs of our hens and herbs of our balcony little garden.
Once at home, wherever you are in the world, your guests will be literally enthusiastic about your new culinary skills!

If you’re debating on if you should book this experience... Stop and book it now. This experience is worth DOUBLE the price. I am someone who does not have much confidence in the kitchen and Silvia and Erico made me feel comfortable and confident trying new things. I wanted to book my ticket back to Como before we left because I was having so much fun. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I feel like I had new friends by the end of the meal. I learned so much about Italian culture and language as well. They were also so good at explaining things that I feel confident that I could at least make the tiramisu on my own after the lesson. Silvia is a tiramisu master and is training for her next tiramisu competition so you’re in great hands. Erico is the pasta maker of the two and I specifically enjoyed using the pasta machines. He taught us great technique. It was also such a great experience to exchange cultures we learned about different areas that we need to visit in Italy, restaurants to try when I return, and even compared Italian-American and Italian culture. This was such a good way for me to spend my first visit to Italy/ birthday weekend and I HIGHLY recommended this experience to everyone.

This was an amazing and incredible experience. Silvia and Enrico were so welcoming and made the experience enjoyable and fun! They gave us a better understanding of Italian culture and cuisine. They explained how to make everything so clearly and I feel confident I can make these recipes when I’m home. I definitely feel like I took a piece of Italy home with me thanks to them!!

This cooking class was the highlight of my first trip to Italy! Pasta is one of my favorite foods, and learning how to make it with two amazing and talented people was truly an authentic experience. Communication with Silvia before the experience was consistent and clear. Being unfamiliar with the area and transportation services, Silvia offered to provide transportation to and from her home. During the class, Silvia and Enrico provided great cooking tips and step by step instructions on how to create the perfect dish. We also learned how to make tiramisu from Silvia who competes in tiramisu competitions. It was truly an honor learning from the tiramisu queen!! This was an experience I will never forget and I’m happy to gain two friends in Italy!

This experience was truly amazing. Silvia and Enrico were phenomenal! I felt like I learned so much about Italy and the Italian culture in a matter of hours. Silvia had such great communication leading up to the experience and it built our excitement and we were not left disappointed. One of the great pleasures of traveling is being able to be immersed in another culture, that is one of the reasons I enjoyed this experience so much. Silvia and Enrico shared so much knowledge about Italy’s geography, food, customs, and we even learned some Italian! The pasta and tiramisu was so delicious and it was so cool to learn how to make them. I am still dreaming about the tiramisu!! Whenever I come back to Como, I would do this experience over and over again. Recommend 110%

My family and I had the best time with Silvia and Enrico! The experience was more than just making pasta and Tiramisu, although that was a fantastic experience. Silvia and Enrico made us feel at home and made the experience personal. If in Como and you love pasta and Tiramisu as well as meeting people then this is a must do experience. The price is very good but the experience is unbelievable. Great food and time! Thanks Silvia and Enrico for a wonderful day!
