When I decided to take this class I was excited to learn some secrets of Italian cooking and learn how to make some of the dishes I had savored during my visit in Italy. I loved learning the secrets that make a big difference in the flavor and texture of the food. Matteo and Alex have a way of teaching and sharing their experience of the food and of life that intertwines into a rich and entertaining experience.  I came away feeling very encouraged and it boosted my confidence of my cooking ability. The way Matteo and Alex teach really helps you understand that cooking is a series of small steps and when you pay attention to each of those steps the results are fabulous.

The Perfect Experience for You if...

“We took this class because of the personal, familial approach to making Italian food and loved the incorporation of family, culture and history behind the dishes. Taking this class enhanced our understanding of the history and nature of the ingredients, and how food and culture are essential to Italian people. We would recommend this class to anyone who not only wants to learn the recipes, but experience the enjoyment of slow cooking, thoughtful preparation, and the enjoyment of preparing and eating traditional foods in a communal setting.”

“We took this class because of the personal, familial approach to making simple Italian food, rather than elaborate recipes that would be difficult to duplicate, and loved the incorporation of family, culture and history behind the dishes. Taking this class enhanced our understanding of the history and nature of the ingredients, and how food and culture are essential to Italian people. The friendliness, ease, and lack of pretension that made it warm and fun! We would recommend this class to anyone who not only wants to learn the recipes, but experience the enjoyment of slow cooking, thoughtful preparation, and the enjoyment of preparing and eating traditional foods in a communal setting.”

“My family was impressed with Alex and Matteo’s cooking which led us to choosing the class. Matteo and Alex made us feel very relaxed, which granted us the emotional freedom to act ourselves, laugh, share wine, and not take the class too seriously. The dynamic Matteo and Alex offered was the perfect balance of humor, following a plan, and learning how to prepare delicious food while enjoying wine with loved ones. I think adventurous, curious learners who appreciate the finer aspects of life, and are looking to expand their knowledge of various culinary techniques would love this class experience.”

The dynamic Matteo and Alex offered was the perfect balance of humor, following a plan, and learning how to prepare delicious food while enjoying wine with loved ones. In my experience, it’s not what you learn in these types of experiences, it’s how you feel in retrospect: the feeling of creating something, then enjoying it amongst loved ones. My family laughs and enjoys thinking back about each of the moments shared in their class. I think adventurous, curious learners who appreciate the finer aspects of life, and are looking to expand their knowledge of various culinary techniques would love this class experience.”

Join us for 100+ years of family history 🇮🇹

Ciao! We are your 2 chefs Alex and Matteo… a quite fun (if you ask us) married couple living between California and Tuscany in Italy.

Matteo hails from his family’s hotel-restaurant in Italy, in business since 1906. Alex (a Californian but now basically Italian) was lucky enough to meet Matteo, first being serenaded by his plates of pasta, and then learning to cook Italian cuisine herself.

Alex moved to Italy in 2013 where she learned Italian language, learned Matteo’s family’s cooking philosophy, and fell in love with the rich culture and traditions behind Italian food.

Now Alex and Matteo proudly “export” the food and culture to California throughout the year through cooking classes like this one and private dinner experiences.

We are proud to have a very “word-of-mouth” business and to be interviewed on Podcasts and YouTube channels, such as the Little Italy of Los Angeles.

When we aren’t in California, you can find us back in Italy welcoming guests (including many Californians) at our family hotel-restaurant in Tuscany.

“I decided to try a cooking class after hearing about the experience from a number of friends. I enjoyed learning the techniques and working with my family – we were so proud of what we produced while gaining a deeper understanding of where the dishes comes from, the local ingredients and the traditional dishes we prepared. I almost can’t describe the feeling of joy that overcame me while re-producing the dishes and then sharing them with my family. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone who is looking to learn more about Italian cooking and sharing a very meaningful meal with their loved ones. This could also be an amazing group building exercise for a small group of family and friends to sign up for.”
