Home cooking class

Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats since Roman times, and offers many artistic and cultural gems. The beauty of living the Dolce Vita on the lake is to enjoy simple things, that most of the times we take for granted, like a cappuccino, an aperitif in the piazza or on a terrace overlooking the lake or a cooking class with a local chef.

You will truly understand our culture and passion for food and during the lesson you will also have the opportunity to experience Italian conviviality and savour the true Italian way of life. The lesson includes a rich and “appetising” aperitif with prosecco, a practical cookery lesson consisting of the preparation of a first course, e.g. fresh homemade pasta with a seasonal vegetable sauce or risotto, a second course and a dessert, e.g. tiramisu. A talk about the origins and nutritional properties of each of the foods will also be included.

At the end of the lesson you can all enjoy the food you have prepared together, accompanied by a glass of excellent wine, water and a digestive.

I am an Italian researcher and writer born in Como on the banks of the beautiful river. I graduated in Pharmacy at the University of Milan and then moved to Brussels where I obtained a Master’s degree in Medical and Pharmaceutical Research. I worked as a researcher in Belgium and Austria for more than a decade and after returning to Italy I dedicated myself to cooking, nutrition and wellness.

Cooking, healthy eating and sport have always been my passion and my way of life. I have a cooking blog “Passion and Cooking”  and I collaborate with several national and international magazines. I give cooking and culinary culture classes, mainly to foreign audiences.

I have published several books including “Love is Eating, Healthy and Tasty Italian Recipes for Family Meals”, “The Mamma Mia! Diet”, “Honestly Healthy” and “Aperitivo, The Italian Happy Hour”.

Cucina gourmet di pesce a domicilio is “where you want” a take-away concept with a delivery service and home chef who takes care of the research of raw materials and packaging to offer you always new emotions.

        My work experience starts from Mexican cuisine with the processing of shellfish, marinades and flambé that were my first impression of this world and then led me to fall in love with experimental cuisine and especially fish cuisine.

        Initially, to learn cooking techniques from different countries I had to go to Florence where I learned about mixing and matching fish crudités with cocktails.

        In 2010 I returned to Como, my hometown, where I continued to practice mixing combined with cooking and after 3 years of hard work I started to build my own experimental restaurant project with a search for 100% Italian ingredients and the addition to the classic dining room service of delivery and home chef to bring my passion into the homes of those who wanted to share it.
