What you'll do

What's better than a spaghetti with tomato and basil?
Pasta is the symbol of Italy and in every Italian house, even mine, is the dish on the table every day. You would have eaten it many times but after our course you could say to your guest that you have cooked it!
The lesson will take place in the kitchen of my house where we will cook and eat the lunch with a good glass of wine!

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to change the recipe because alternatively we can cook pasta carbonara, pasta with pesto or fresh tomato, pasta garlic oil and chili, all'amatriciana or all'arrabbiata!

Hello! I'm Francesca and I'm Italian: a bit of the north and a bit of the south Italy. My passion for cooking began thanks to my mother and my grandmother who handed down love for cooking and the recipes typical of their land. My passion has then grown thanks to cooking classes and experimenting always new recipes for friends and family. My cooking is made of traditional recipes, accessible to everyone because they are prepared with the main ingredients: passion and love!

My mother and I had an amazing time getting to know Francesca and learning how to cook pasta…the food turned out delicious, but it was made all that much better thanks to our kind, fun, welcoming, and personable host. Would recommend to anyone looking for a laid back, relaxing, and enjoyable experience in Como…with food of course :)

We were a group of 4 people… Francesca and her home was very comfortable and inviting. She had everything prepared and the table was set for us to enjoy the food. Francesca’s apartment was clean and she made sure we all washed our hands prior to starting… in times of covid her attention to health safety was impeccable. She told us stories of learning to cook from her grandmother. Such a wonderful experience with Francesca. We hope to learn something again from her on our next visit to Como.

I would absolutely recommend visiting Francescas cooking class to everyone, either you a already have good cooking skills or you‘re a beginner. We had a blast preparing the pasta, meeting a very interesting and warm host as well as a great group of other guests. Francesca made all of us feel welcome at her beautiful home. Another highlight was the aperitivo with many different snacks from all over Italy.

Francesco is such a great host. She went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the cooking session. It was quite an enjoyable experience. For me, it felt like I was visiting a friend. I feel fortunate to have learnt this culinary art from her.

The experience with Francesca was delightful. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome to Lake Como and to her home. It felt was like having dinner with a good friend and eating delicious homemade pasta as the bonus.

Francesca ist eine sehr herzliche Gastgeberin und wir konnten viel über die italienische Küche lernen. Es war ein sehr gelungener Abend mit toller Atmosphäre! Gerne wieder :)
