I'm 30 years old and I'm a passionate home baker! My "real" work is about social media marketing but my love for sourdough brought me to start sharing my passion. I take a diary of my homemade productions in my Instagram profile @ilmiopane_it and on my blog www.ilmiopane.it
I love sourdough bread (I have another Experience on it) but I think that FOCACCIA is easier to prepare and more enjoyable to eat!
My sourdough focaccia is made completely by hand, I use organic italian flours and local product to season it!

My daughter found this experience and Elena made this seem so easy that it’s something I really think I will do at home. Her place is gorgeous and she is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable. She is very organized and time was perfect. Keeping class small makes it very personable. She really wants to know people. I highly recommend.

I had high hopes for this experience, and Elena still managed to exceed them! First, the location. It was very convenient, just about a block east of the historic center of Como. Inside, her apartment is beautiful and she has an enormous terrace with million dollar views of the lake, city center and mountains in the distance. Bring your camera! Second, the class. The process of making focaccia, while not difficult, does take longer than two hours from start to finish. But Elena had it organized perfectly with a little bit of “the magic of television” so that you get to experience each step of the process in a condensed period of time. It was very hands on so you leave feeling like you really understand how to recreate the results at home. Also, the class size is small - no more than 4 people, and in fact our group was only the two of us - so you get plenty of attention and all of your questions answered. Third, the hostess. What a wonderful person Elena is! Very personable and attentive, obviously experienced in her craft. She truly wants to make sure you feel confident in your ability by the time you leave, and thanks to her very clear (and written) instructions AND the starter that she gives you to take back home, you will! Can’t wait to impress all of my friends with my new focaccia making prowess - thank you Elena!

Dear Elena,thank you very much for your expert tuition on making focaccia. I found your apartment the ideal place to learn bread making, the beautiful view of Como and your patience, enthusiasm for teaching a subject you love. I felt confident that I'll return to England with great focaccia knowledge. I look forward to seeing you again in 2020 for more baking :)

One of the most incredible things I have done in Italy is bake focaccia on a rainy day. Elena is such a good teacher, now that I've returned to England I'm going to start making the focaccia - I'm so excited !!
