Cooking Courses
Making beautiful, tasty and healthy dishes is simple when working with the masters

Welcome to the most inclusive one day culinary programs from Italy where you'll learn about, and taste, over 100 delicacies from every region of Italy. During these entertaining days, you will not only acquire skills for expert Mediterranean cooking but also realize a profound knowledge of Regional Italian Cuisine, making you a better consumer and restaurant patron.

Pairing wines, understanding the truths and myths about "Italian food" and bridging the gap between classic Italian cuisine and modern standards of healthful eating are strengths that are rare even for experienced professionals.

By integrating culinary training with cultural knowledge, the program is designed to give individuals the techniques necessary for new recipe development. Through an examination of taste, ingredients, and flavoring techniques, participants discover how to structure new dishes, meals and menus. Finally, participants are shown how to make these dishes beautiful using the same spectacular plate decorating techniques of world champion chefs and pastry chefs.
