VM Cooking School for Italian Food Lovers – one day Kitchen Experience Lecco
While you’re visiting the beautiful area of Lecco and Lake Como, you should really consider spending the day cooking with Viviana Musumeci . Viviana is a food writer, journalist and teacher, not to mention an Italian Mom! All mamme Italiane want the best home-life for their families and it all starts in the kitchen.
While you’re here in the Lake Como region you will certainly find lovely places to eat and you’ll surely try local dishes and specialties, so why not go home and impress your friends and family with a new talent? You can learn how to make fresh pasta, prepare vegetables, fish and meat using traditional methods not only of Lombardy, but other regional Italian cuisines as well.
Viviana Musumeci writes for Italian newspapers and magazines. You can find her articles in the fashion, lifestyle, luxury and, of course, the food sections. She started the VM Cooking School for Italian food lovers and says:
“I love sharing my knowledge and passion with visitors. Food is something that is really universal, you can really connect with people, no matter where they are from. I want my guests to live and experience the authentic Italian life style in the kitchen by touching, cutting, smelling, tasting and of course traditional preparation of real Italian food.”
The course is a one-day adventure starting at 10am with breakfast and then off to the local shops, green grocers and bodegas for shopping and learning how to choose the best ingredients. Then back to Viviana’s home in the charming neighborhood of Pescarenico. Then the cooking begins! Cutting, chopping, dicing and slicing…everyone does their part. Of course, it’s not a real Italian kitchen experience without a little wine… while the food is in the oven or cooking on the stove a small glass to sip and nice conversation makes for a perfect afternoon. Then the meal is ready! Buon appetito!
If you are an Italian food lover, a day with Viviana is fun and educational. She can host an intimate group of up to 4 people. You will certainly leave Vivian’s kitchen’s with a new recipe, a nice memory and above all a full stomach!
