The Ultimate Florence Cooking Class… FINALLY IN MILAN!

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 Michelin-star restaurants. But nothing beats learning to make it yourself, right? Learn the tricks of the trade at the best cooking class in Milano!

Finally, you can: our signature “Wanna Be Italiano” cooking class, beloved and popular ever since 2007, is now available in downtown Milan!

Master the art of preparing typical Milanese fare and traditional Italian cuisine, enjoy a unique pasta-making class in Milan led by an experienced charismatic chef; dive into the depths of flavor in the charming contemporary premises of the Florencetown Cooking School!

First of all set off to explore Milan’s fascinating culinary scene visiting the city’s bottegas, crammed with fresh produce and local specialties. Led by your chef you will browse, 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. Groceries in hand take a short walk to our cooking school, a brand-new stylish facility in the heart of town. 

Aprons on, following your chef's skilled instructions, and 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, to get the seasonings right!), and take a break to savor a selection of our 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… everyone will love tasting what you learned to make at your cooking class in Milano!


The menu varies slightly according to the season but will generally include hand-made pasta, pasta sauces, cheese fondue, and a dessert.
