Dining, in or out, is a question of style in Milan, and only here can one find all of Italy (and most of the world) in the kitchens, and the majority of Italy’s Michelin-star restaurants. But nothing beats learning how to make it yourself. Learn the tricks of the trade at the best cooking class in Milano with the signature “Wanna Be Italiano” cooking class, beloved and popular ever since 2007. Master the art of preparing typical Milanese fare and traditional Italian cuisine, enjoy a unique pasta making class led by an experienced charismatic chef; dive into the depths of flavour in the charming contemporary premises of the Diadema Cooking School.
First, set off to explore Milan’s fascinating culinary scene visiting the bottegas, crammed with fresh produce and local specialties. Led by your chef you will browse and learn about the local specialties and traditional food heritage, and liaise with the vendors, butchers and bakers as you pick out the best, tastiest ingredients to prepare your meal. After this fun experience you will reach our fascinating location of the cooking class, always in the central market, where you'll enjoy a delicious tasting of typical products. Following your chef's skilled instructions, learn how to prepare exquisite traditional dishes: cheese fondue, ragout, fresh hand-rolled pasta and dessert, too. Measure, mince, mix and stir (and taste, of course!), and take a break to savour a selection of premium Diadema wines and local specialty cheeses. Once all is ready sit down with a good glass of wine and relish the best Italian meal ever: the one you made yourself in the heart of Milan. At the end of the experience you will receive a Cooking Class Attendance Certificate, as well as a full Recipe Booklet to share the recipes you learned with your friends and family at home.
