Katie’s Kitchen in Como

Welcome to my Food Blog coming Live from Lake Como, Italy. I am Katie, an Irish woman from County Wicklow, Ireland, who fell in love with Italy many years ago, and now live with my Irish-Italian family in Como, Italy.

For the past few years I have been running private bespoke cooking classes from my kitchen in our home in Como. We have hosted guests from all over the world, and had the wonderful opportunity to get to know & cook with their families.

I had a lovely surprise last summer when a wonderful group of clients turned up at my door, and ended up being from my home town, Bray County Wicklow!

Real Family recipes are dispatched regularly from my kitchen in Como, where seasonal ingredients are worked into an everyday dishes you can adapt easily and quickly.

In our busy family life, we want to be able to create delicious dishes, using local and seasonal ingredients where possible, and at the same time do it easily and quickly!

“Awesome Class and Lunch”


Awesome class! Katie was a wonderful, gracious hostess and teacher, showing us (me and my family) how to make risotto, tagliatelle pasta and gelato. A memorable experience for our trip to Lake Como. We picked up so many useful cooking tips. It was also relaxing to be in her home in her kitchen, which added to the experience. We were staying in Bellagio and had other closer options, but we’re so so glad we made this choice. Katie’s class is highly recommended!

“Pasta Master Class”


We had a lovely morning with Katie in her beautiful home.
Katie was a wonderful host and we were made very welcome.
I had never done a cooking class before and I had no idea what to expect – maybe something between ready steady cook, and my high school Home Economics class but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Although, if we had bottles of prosecco and home made peach gelato in Home Ec. I might have enjoyed it a lot more!!
We learnt how to make the most incredible Ravioli and had so much fun rolling out the pasta and making our dishes. We also made risotto and the most delicious Peach Gelato.
The whole morning was relaxed and so enjoyable. 
I really would highly recommend booking a class with Katie!
