Perfect your cooking skills: book an Italian cooking holiday
It seems that in the last few years cooking has become more popular as a hobby. Everywhere you look there is a cooking program or a celebrity chef telling you how to season your lamb or make your own pasta. Some of them always use butter, some only use olive oil, and then there’s the odd one that mixes both on the same pan. But what is the right thing to do when cooking authentic Italian meals? Who can teach you to cook like a real mamma?
Now Cottages to Castles has the answer to your questions! We have teamed with a group of skilled cooks to offer you cooking activities during your holidays in Italy. Our carefully selected cooks will come to visit you in your villa this summer and teach you how to make a proper Italian meal with the freshest local ingredients (in some cases, if you are lucky, you might even be able to pick your own herbs or vegetables from the garden just outside your door!). Whether you’ve always dreamed of making your own ravioli from scratch or surprising everybody with a serving of tiramisù that leaves your guests speechless, there’s not a more enjoyable way to learn the secrets of genuine Italian cooking. Traditional cooking and recipes are passed on from one generation to another, as an indivisible part of their culture and national feeling. In our opinion, there is undoubtedly no better way to learn than from someone who has learnt to cook as part of their cultural heritage. Just book one of our villas offering Italian cooking activities for your holidays, open the door of your villa and take in all the tips and advice from the experts!
