What you'll do
We will meet close to Monza Railway station, walk through Monza historical city center (3km easy stroll) all the way to Monza Villa Reale, its gardens and Park. We will have a stroll through this lush green lung and head to one of the typical Brianza farmhouses, a magical and bucolic example of rural architecture. There, a chef is waiting for us to cook together a traditional dish from Monza (the Monzese Risotto). We will learn the tricks to be able to repeat the recipe once back home and then taste our culinary efforts. We will share a full meal (2 dishes + 1 glass of fine). The menu always features local traditional recipes that may vary according to the season. We will enjoy our meal in the warm and beautiful dining room of the Cascina, or when sunny weather, under its romantic porch. In front of a good espresso we will share some ideas on how to spend the afternoon by yourself for those who wish to spend more time in this beautiful city and park.
I am an outgoing and friendly person, highly passionate about the Italian culture (art, food, architecture, landscape and folklore). I graduated in Art History at Milano University. Before that, I spent my teenage years in Monza, studying languages. I am excited to share all that I have learned about the city and its traditions. I look forward meeting new guests and having a wonderful relaxing and above all enriching experience together!
Lunch made of 2 courses If you have allergies or food restrictions, please warn us in advance, we will try to adapt the menu!
