What people are saying about Milan
An amazing 5 hours with Clara in Milan.Italian passion about locally sourced produce from a local market. What to look for, logos indicating locally produced cheese, how to select the best local Porcinni mushrooms. Listening to passionate Italian banter about the produce. Sampled some cheeses. Walked back and welcomed into her home. Everything explained. Used various items such as heat indication devices to find out the temperature in a meat joint and a cake.Hands on cooking, following recipes in a clear and concise way. All great fun learning and creating an Italian four course lunch. Clara has patience, knowledge and humour. A professional cook coping with six strangers in her kitchen! Loved the communal group dynamic. How does gnocchi know when to surface in the boiling water?! Clara’s only mistake was to let us sample the runny cheese for the sauce. There wasn’t much left for the sauce! To finish we all ate together at the table, sampled wine and Prosecco. Thankyou so much.
Our Chef Clara brought our team of six apprentices to a local market and taught us how to select properly local seasonal products; this activity included of course some sampling of delicious cheeses. Back in her kitchen we learned to prepare 4 different dishes, including how to prepare pasta from scratch and a nice 'torta'. The teaching is in a real house kitchen, so you learn with utensils that you have at home, although hers has nothing to envy a restaurant's kitchen. You also learn some basic tricks on how to organize yourself to prepare all the dishes in sequence so you don't end up with one of them under- or overcooked. Making pasta was fun and easy, and far less messy as I expected. She keeps an eye on each one of the participants, and helps you understand and achieve the techniques quite easily. There were other similar offers, but she is the only one that included the visit to the market, plus she and her husband make the best Italian hosts. Highly recommended!!
Clara is professionally trained in culinary, pastry and is a sommelier!! Her well equipped spotless kitchen and home is close to an amazing and bountiful market. Using only the freshest of organic ingredients she has designed seasonal menus that appeal to all tastes and all skill levels. You will return home feeling more confident and certainly more knowledgeable about Italian Cuisine and actually 'roll up your sleeves' and make that pasta!! I can still taste the stuffed and baked artichokes and oh...the risotto was so delicious!! Remember the 'wave'!! You too will have a complete recipe booklet to take home and replicate the menu. This is a cooking experience you do not want to miss out on!! If I was in Milan or area I would most definitely be retuning for another class. And thank you to Marco, Clara's husband for the yummy homemade Lemoncello to accompany our dessert!! With gratitude, Bob & Cathy xox
