The Chef’s Garden at Villa d’Este

I have previously blogged that I believe when on travel to Italy, a cooking class must be top of the list.  If you are staying at Villa d’Este you can attend The Chef’s Garden which is located on the panoramic hillside leading to the Statue of Hercules and Lica.  Cooking lessons, using fresh ingredients from the garden, are available on request; and after your lesson, a wine tasting is recommended to finish off your evening!

Cooking School, Italy

If you are travelling to Italy, the one activity that we find both golfers and non-golfers alike love, is an authentic Italian cooking class.  An ideal location to experience this is in the Lake Como area where cooking classes take place in the Culinary Institute, “Gianni Brera” – which is considered one of the best institutes in Italy.  Lessons are hands-on and before beginning the cooking process, the participants will be taken to the nearby food department store where the chef will introduce you to the culinary habits of the Italians.

The classes are based on the preparation of the lunch or dinner that will then be eaten by the participants themselves at the end of the class.  Importantly, the meal is accompanied by fine wines!

PerryGolf can incorporate as many cooking classes as desired into a vacation and would be delighted to arrange transfers from your hotel (ideal in order to allow you to enjoy the wines on offer during the day).

A perfect addition to your Italy vacation.
