Discover how to cook a 4-course Italian meal in a half-day morning cooking class, in a private home with a breathtaking sea-view on the island of Lipari. The class is led by an experienced Italian teacher and sommelier, in English, in small groups of 2-6 people for more personal attention. Start in the morning with a nice walk to the local food market with the chef, who will show you how to pick the best seasonal local products. Then you will be taken by car (a 10-minute drive) to the chef’s beautiful typical Aeolian home with Mediterranean garden and a view of the sea behind the Cathedral of Lipari.
We will cook together 100% hands-on four homemade Italian recipes for about 3 hours: salad, homemade pasta, main course and dessert. Once everything is ready, we will sit around the table and admire the breathtaking sea-view from the terrace while eating what we have prepared, paired with an Italian wine chosen by the sommelier. Finish in typical Italian style with an espresso coffee, before collecting your souvenir cooking diploma and recipes, after which you will be driven back to Lipari or to your hotel/house. Memories of this exceptional food experience will last a lifetime.Sample Menu
