These courses can be taught in English and French.

Who is the course for?

These courses are ideal for food enthusiasts, for chefs, foreigners and whoever wants to feel more confident in specific cooking areas.

For the love of the cooking arts

Amateur courses are aimed at those who love cooking and wish to improve their skills in the preparation of traditional Italian dishes: fresh pasta, first course dishes (pasta, risotto, soups), second course dishes (meat and fish), yeast doughs, ice-cream, as well as ethnic cuisine and pastry arts.

The courses are a fun and constructive introduction to the culinary world, and a first step towards a potential future profession.

They are great for those that already have a basic self taught level of competence in the home kitchen, for foreigners and for cooks wishing to enhance a specific area.

All of this thanks to a professional and hospitable staff of ourItalian cooking schoollocated in the unique and attractive location of Palazzo Panciatichi Ximenes.
