ABC cook in Italy | Alce Bologna Cucina
Experience the excellence in the most important gastronomic centre of Emilia
Hands on cooking classes with our professional Chefs right in the heart of the Italian Food Valley: Emilia Romagna.
These classes are designed to show you the secrets of Italian cuisine. Secrets that spring from the diverse histories of the country’s various places, all of which boast numerous regional and local specialties. Qualified chefs will help you prepare superb dishes, step by step.
The basic techniques are learned ‘over the stove‘ and at the table and at the end of each session there is the opportunity to taste exquisitecombinations of food and wine.
The whole process is then summarised in a cookbook for you to take away, which lists the techniques you have used and developed.
NEW: From October 2015, classes are held in our state-of-the-art fully equipped professional kitchen (with twelve individual workstations, a complete roster of utensils and appliances, and …a magnificent view on the famous Bologna roofs).
