We had an amazing time at this cooking class!! Our chef, Liu, was knowledgeable, friendly and did a great job explaining to our group how we could recreate the dishes upon returning home. The class was the perfect size (12 participants) and it was the perfect balance between demonstration and hands on. I would 100% recommend this to anyone in Milan looking for something to do!

Great Experience and Tasty Food

I had never rolled dough before, so it was a simple but encouraging experience in learning how to make and shape pasta. I'll definitely try the recipes at home once they are emailed to me. My sister and I overall had a blast and learned a lot about what an authentic risotto should look and taste like. The tiramisu was so so tasty!
food and fun

The cooking class was amazing and we really enjoyed every minute. We made ravioli and tiramisu. The chefs made a special accommodation for my gluten allergy with saffron risotto, risotto cakes, beet foam and gluten free tiramisu which was delicious and I didn’t feel like i missed out in the least bit. I highly recommend this coping class.
Super fun and interactive...
