Cook & Learn Italian with Marino and Nonna

What a wonderful virtual Italian cooking lesson from a beautiful family in Italy. I felt as if I was right in the kitchen with Marino and his Nonna. As we were preparing to start a class, Marino gave us a tour of his family’s garden and animal kingdom. This was wonderful and it showed what a wonderful family he comes from. Very thoughtful and very kind. We shared the meal at the end and it was delicious! Cannot wait for the next one!

Cook & Learn Italian with Marino and Nonna Experience BellaVita

Where we will be:
Italian culture is all about food & people and in our region Abruzzo, in the south of Italy, we are known for the great hospitality and amazing food, some of which you never heard of.

We will be live from Nonna’s kitchen on Wednesdays and Sundays, while the other days Nonna and Mamma will pop in to say Ciao and check everything is going well.

Private Experience
Would you love to organize a birthday or anniversary party but participants are not in the same place? We’d be happy to turn this special occasion into a memorable experience by cooking Italian food with you. If you opt for a private experience just for your group, you can also fully customize it by letting us know which Italian dishes tempt you most. Feel free to drop us a line and we’ll be happy to get back to you.
