your experience

Start your culinary journey at La Nicchia Cafe before your cooking lesson to get the inside scoop on the best Italian cuisine and wine. Indulge in a diverse tasting menu as you relish dishes such as Pure black truffle pate spread over Caciotta cheese, Bruschetta with Parmigiano and truffle cream, Filettuccio al Barolo, and many more delicacies.

Participating in a cooking class will allow you to polish your culinary skills, get access to some delectable new dishes, and appreciate the nuances of flavor that are incorporated into each dish. The session will be conducted in a well-known restaurant in the neighborhood, one that has been given great acclaim by both local and international food critics and bloggers, and which offers the perfect atmosphere with its large kitchen that is kept up to date.

Chef Francesca or Chef Angela or Chef Luciano will greet you when you arrive. Angela and Luciano, who have been teaching culinary workshops together for decades, are outstanding instructors because of their expertise, passion, and patience.

Prosecco is served to guests as they are welcomed into genuine Italian dining, and are then given an up-close and personal look at the restaurant's operations. Put on your apron and head into the kitchen, where you will learn how to prepare traditional, time-honored dishes like silky tiramisu and freshly made pasta. After the hard work, it’s time to reap the benefits of your labor. At the end of your cooking class, you will be provided with the recipes for the dishes that you had cooked which you may then recreate at home.
