It features spacious granite counters, a large professional range and an outdoor veranda, where you can enjoy a break between courses.
All the dishes are made only with the freshest of ingredients and follow typical recipes that have been handed down for many generations.
Mostly of our vegetables and herbs grows in our garden or green house and if students like the idea, they can pick them directly from the plant and then go back in the kitchen to prepare them.
Each cooking course lasts approximately 2 hours and is followed by either lunch or dinner based on the lesson’s subject. Generally, menus are composed of: antipasto, fresh pasta, fish or meat second course and dessert.
Meals are accompanied by suitable wines and mineral water.
