Your cooking teacher is Luciana Sampogna a graduate from the famous Simili Sisters' school in Bologna.
The Similis' achieved international fame & ran Marcella Hazan's cooking school. As Gourmet Traveler defined Luciana: "she is also following in their footsteps: her cooking school teaches the Simili Sisters' recipes as well as following their philosophy of introducing the time-honored traditions of regional Italian cooking to a new generation who, even in Italy, are fast losing these skills."
With this extensive knowledge of Italian food Luciana strives to teach that it is the simplicity of Italian Food which makes it so special. You will learn that Italian Food is not about techniques but carefully balancing ingredients without letting them overpower giving you the opportunity to discover the real flavour of Italian cuisine.
For all classes, Luciana will take you to the heart of different regions in Italy. All the respected Food Magazines including Gourmet Traveler, Delicious, Vogue and Good Living & have recommended this boutique Cooking School.
