We are a cooking school that provides cooking classes to teach you how to make real homely Italian cooking from scratch. Our goal is to take you back to the old days, where the kitchen was the hub of the home, a place to discuss, share knowledge, tastes and passions. We really feel like our experience is fun for foodies of any age!
We can even arrange a market before the class to buy fresh food, let us know if this is something that would interest you!
* Please note, to customise an English lesson we need a minimum of 4 people. The timing can be decided as per both our convenience!
We want this to be a completely tailor-made experience, so let us know which italian delicacy you want to know the secret recipe for! this could be nonna’s ragu sauce, fresh egg pasta, making pesto from scratch, caponata (sweet&sour aubergines), italian-style meatballs or even tiramisu!
We are waiting for you at Cucinista
It’s possible to ask for a custom menu (such as Sicilian one, vegan or anything else…Be as specific as you would like!)
We are located in a central area of milan, inside a charming 17th century farmhouse called “cascina cuccagna”.
Close to the underground stop “Porta Romana” or “Lodi Tibb” (Yellow line – Central station and Duomo Line), a supermarket in front of the location and twice a week (tuesday and friday) fresh grocery market. We are close to the Porta Romana gate. This area is one of the historic districts of Milan, it is a great place to go shopping and admire the opulent 19th century- and early 20th century buildings.
Our cooking school has been featured on British tv show “Travel man”, broadcasted on Channel 4.
