Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to Milan train station in the morning, and meet your friendly, private guide. After getting acquainted, board a comfortable train to Lake Como, and relax on your journey to Como, the vibrant city at the southern end of the lake.

After roughly an hour, arrive at Como and take the short ferry ride to Blevio, set on the lake’s eastern banks. As you cruise, admire the views of the luxury villas, gardens and cliffs that frame the lake, and gaze out over the surrounding mountains.

Go ashore at Blevio, and head for the cooking school where your private culinary class will take place. Meet the friendly chef, and make yourself at home in the charming kitchen.

Enjoy a welcome drink and snacks as you chat about the 2-course lunch menu, and once you’re ready, set about preparing the dishes, drawn from different regions of Italy.

With guidance from your chef, use the fresh ingredients to conjure up a main dish such as homemade pasta or risotto. Then, follow it up by making a classic Italian dessert such as tiramisu, creating a delectable final flourish to your meal.

After your 2.5-hour class and with everything ready, sit down with your chef and enjoy your creations. Get feedback on your dishes, hear about the history of each recipe, and wash down your food with a delicious Italian wine, specially chosen to complement your meal.

Following lunch, bid farewell to your chef, and catch the ferry back to Como, admiring more of the enchanting scenery as you cruise. Then, finish your visit with a leisurely walking tour of Como’s main sights, including the picturesque waterfront, with your guide.

Lastly, return by train to Milan, where your tour ends at the station.

Had a blast cooking with Momi, the head chef and the owner of the restaurant. We had a great time learning and helping out. Even though my daughter and I are horrible at cooking we still enjoyed the experience and had fun doing something we dont usually do. My wife had the most fun and helped cook some of the dishes. She even cooked for the restaurants customers! The view there is picturesque and breathtaking, so it was a great place for photos as well. I highly reccommend this as it is a great experience, wether you are experienced in cooking or not. I really enjoyed it. Renzo was a great tour guide. He answered every question we had in mind and told us a lot of interesting facts with his vast knowledge about Lake Como.

What can I say. We met Enzo our tour guide at Milan's Central Station. Enzo is local to Como and was able to give us a detailed history of the area. From Milan a short train ride to Lake Como where we met our chef and restaurant owner Momi. We then proceeded to the market where Momi picked up his food he was planning to prepare for his restaurant. The restaurant is located directly on Lake Como in a beautiful setting. Momi put us to work cleaning some squid and we got a real feel what goes on behind the scenes. We were given a chance to help with the pasta making machine. not by hand We were not too crazy about playing sous chef for a bit but when it was time to eat all I can say is wow. A short ferry ride back to Como and a train back to Milan and it turned out be a memorable day.
