What you'll do

Live an AUTHENTIC ITALIAN GASTRONOMIC EXPERIENCE!

I will welcome you in my Italian country house with a refreshing water with lemons from Lake Garda, an Italian coffee and a sweet pastry.
In season we’ll pick up together vegetables and aromatic herbs from my lovely garden and we’ll use extra virgin olive oil from my grove.

We’ll have FUN KNEADING and cutting different PASTA shapes paired with typical Italian regional SAUCES and we’ll make together the authentic Italian dessert. We will discover the secrets of Italian cooking between tradition and innovation. I’ll introduce you to the high-quality Italian ingredients and suggest you where to buy the best local foods. I’ll give you RECIPES that are part of my Italian gastronomic culture and family treasure.

You’ll enjoy a special LUNCH with a glass of LOCAL WINE on the terrace by the lake or in a cozy veranda with a breathtaking view.

Where you'll be

This experience takes place in Manerba, west-side of Lake Garda, between Desenzano and Salò town.
The town is located in a hilly area of vineyards and olive groves.
You'll be in a typical Italian country house, surrounded by olive trees, directly on the lake and with a lovely garden. The kitchen has a gorgeous view on the green. The terrace and veranda where we'll have lunch together have a special view on the Lake.

Great cooking experience with an amazing and experienced host combined with a beautiful view on lake Garda. We already look forward to trying the recipes ourselves! Definitely recommend.

Dear Maria, It was a pleasure to enjoy your “Italian experience”; as it did not only involve cooking with typical Italian delicate ingredients, but as well relax with a beautiful view on the Garda lake and taste the local white wine. The personal cooking experience in itself was interesting, due to the knowledge and experience of the host, but at the same time relaxing and enjoyable to be busy with. As reward for the spent energy and careful listening, we got to sit on the outside terrace of the house and taste our self-made food while looking out over the lake and having the choice to sit in the sun, or under a parasol. We’ll surely come back with friends and/or family to share this experience, or one of the other food/wine experiences that Maria has to offer. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and passion with us!

Cannot recommend Maria and her cooking class experience enough! I booked this as a birthday excursion for my fiancé! She loved everything about it. Maria is very knowledgeable and the food we cooked was delicious! Highly recommend!

Maria seemed to know a lot about food and had a degree to back it up. It was a good experience and not great, because it felt really rushed!

Wow, what can I say... One of the best experiences I've had in a long, long time. The location, the class, the food, everything was fantastic. The day made even better by the fact that the other 2 guests that we didn't know were 2 of the nicest people my girlfriend and I have had the pleasure of meeting. We sat down for a lovely meal we had be taught to prepare and they even dropped us off at the train station afterwards. Couldn't of asked for a better day. We left actually wanting to use what we learnt immediately. It's much more simple than I expected and can't wait to try myself at home. Thank you for a lovely day Maria
