A cooking class in a class all its own – right in the heart of Vienna

Where better than a cooking class to explore the secrets of Italian cuisine hands on? Marzia offers you a unique and practice-oriented way to become familiar with Italian cooking culture – without having to travel to Italy.

Come on your own, with a partner, with friends, colleagues, or family!

An unforgettable experience of colours, aromas, and the taste of Italy awaits you.

 

What’s cooking?  The recipes

The cornerstones of Italian cuisine are made up of simple but flavourful dishes from an age-old tradition, in complete harmony with sustainable agriculture.

The menu features dishes from the various Italian regions, arranged in line with the seasonal availability of the fresh ingredients. You’ll learn to cook the same home-cooked fare that is served in homes across Italy. Many of the recipes are traditional – handed down from one generation to the next for decades – while others are new and innovative, in keeping with current trends.

We use fresh, authentic, high-quality ingredients that are also easy to find in your area. Marzia has gathered a wealth of insider tips and expertise when it comes to sourcing the finest authentic ingredients, and is more than happy to share them with you. And of course, she’ll let you in on some of the best tips and tricks for preparing them.

 

How does the class work?

Book your desired date and/or menu and come!

A menu is made up of three to four courses (lunch or dinner): an appetizer, one or two main dishes (depending on the class), and a dessert.

You’ll start off getting to know your classmates and learning about the menu over a delicious cup of coffee. You’ll discover interesting tidbits about the region from which the recipes originate, their traditions, the ingredients used, and their particular preparation methods.

And then it’s off to the kitchen to wash your hands, don your apron, and get started! You are best off wearing comfortable clothes and leaving your jewellery at home.

You will master the art of preparing pasta, pizza, gnocchi, meat, fish, vegetables, and desserts from scratch.

Once the work is done, you’ll sit together in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy your creations.

Of course, a fine glass of wine to go with all your freshly prepared dishes is a must. Each course is paired with red and white wines that complement the flavours.  Prosecco, coffee, and tea are also served.
