COOKING AT THE VILLA
Cookery classes and wine tours in and around Verona
Half Day Cooking Class
Cooking classes for up to 6 people
The half-day cooking class gives a knowledge of the cuisine of the area in a short time and is ideal for groups, families, couples or single individuals that come to Verona on a short stay. It is a fun way of spending an afternoon learning recipes from the number one cuisine in the world.
During each class participants are involved into the making of traditional and fun-to-make dishes like risottos, homemade pasta, polenta and more. Everything we prepare here is made from scratch and out of love and passion for Italian cuisine. A portfolio of recipes is given to all participants, as a memory of a pleasant time. If the preparation phase is exciting the tasting part becomes a real treat. Sitting on the patio with their love ones and a glass of cool Durello or Custoza D.O.C. wine one can feel at the same time at home and in a lovely country where warmth and acceptance is genetic. Tasting just prepared cheese ravioli with porcini mushrooms sauce and wrapped duck breast with garlic and rosemary potato quenelles, matching a glass of Amarone D.O.C., can turn an ordinary holiday into an unforgettable experience.
