ONE-DAY COURSES

Become a Chef for a Day

Join my cooking lesson at La Mezzaluna, and I will share many family recipes and traditions with you. The Garfagnana and Serchio Valley region of Tuscany is renowned for its quality of food and the traditional methods of cooking.

My courses are informal with a focus on learning in a relaxed and fun environment. All my cooking courses are conducted in English and take place in the kitchen of my restaurant. I have owned and managed my restaurant for over 30 years and now take great pleasure in passing on my knowledge.

The one-day courses last between 3 and 4 hours. Afterwards, it would be a shame to let all the freshly prepared food go to waste, so we will dine while relaxing with a glass of wine. Add this one-day course on to your holiday, and you will be able to impress your family and friends with your newly acquired culinary skills. During your one-day course, you will learn to cook a surprising variety of dishes. Scroll down for examples.
