Autumnal Cooking Classes on lake Como

Come join Katie in her beautiful home for a class in Lake Como cooking! Katie will show you how to prepare some delicious Como specialities and host a relaxed Italian-style lunch afterwards for you to enjoy them. 

We’ll begin with an appetiser consisting of warm Polenta Crostini dressed with traditionally-made cheeses and cured meat sourced from the region.

To Follow we will prepare a traditional northern Italian dish, Pizzoccheri, This is traditionally served in the mountain retreats above Lake Como. It consists of a handmade pasta using local Saraceno flour, then is cooked and dressed with local cheese from Valtellina, Garlic Butter, Potatoes & Verza (Savoy Cabbage).

After that, we’ll learn to make a delectable seasonal dessert, freshly made Italian Pear Gelato served  with Dark Chocolate Sauce and almonds.

Once our work is done, we’ll sit down to savour our creations with some local wines and unwind. Come and immerse yourself in Italian cooking and culture.
