Join Chef Mino for an extraordinary hands-on cooking experience in the heart of Modena. Learn how to prepare traditional antipasto, fresh pasta, main courses and desserts, while learning the traditions of Italy’s gastronomic heart ~ Modena. Cooking classes are designed for food lovers passionate to learn more about the products and history of this magical region, Emilia Romagna.
Cooking classes take place in our chef’s private kitchen where we always start with an overview of the food. Learn how to make beautiful sheets of hand-made fresh pasta that’ll be hand-cut into tortellini, cappelletti and ravioli, along with seasonal sauces of ragù, pumpkin and mushroom, to name but a few. Main courses are plentiful and include braised veal with fennel, zampone and even cotechino, stuffed pig trotter. Desserts, are delicious, and include the ever-moist torta Barozzi or torta nera, a black tart made with coffee, chocolate and almond, and a sip of nocino, an after dinner liqueur.
You’ll cook, learn and taste Parmigiano-Reggiano, still made by artisan dairymen, aceto balsamico, made from aged wine, and end with a dolce, the famous bensone and Barozzi cake.
