In just a short time, our culinary school in Italy has established a worldwide reputation for excellence.

Our Executive Chef Attilio Di Fabrizio teaches “hands-on” lessons, which means you will be preparing, tasting and cooking alongside him. Small classes ensure that each student enjoys individual attention.

This year, take on the ultimate cookery challenge with our Kitchen Cook-Off course. Go head to head with rival participants as you prepare three of Chef Attilio’s signature dishes. Show off your flair and imagination, as only one person can be named chef of the day. Course available every Wednesday, excluding August.

Browse through our calendar of courses and contact us to expand your culinary repertoire.
