What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

The shores of Lake Como are dotted with ancient villages and lovely villas. Set in the shadow of the Rhaetian Alps, Lake Como is a spectacular landscape destination and an even better culinary one. Known for its Michelin starred restaurants, rustic eateries and swanky bars and bistros, Italian cuisine is at the cornerstone of it all. Wild herbs from the hillside, fresh fruits and vegetables, local fish, and rustic cheeses are the statement flavors and ingredients of Lake Como cuisine.

On the menu: 
  • Heirloom Tomato, Eggplant and Fresh Mozzarella with Wild Arugula Pesto, 
  • Market Fish en Papillote with Julienned Spring Veggies and Basil Butter, 
  • Lemon and Brown Butter Gnocchi, and 
  • Salted Caramel Chocolate Budino Cake
