- Italian Language and Cooking Classes:
The Italian language and cooking courses last one week and consist of daily classes of four hours each. Each lesson starts with an introduction to the common words and phrases used in the kitchen followed by the hands-on experience of preparing a meal together with the chef. The courses are held in English.
You will learn to prepare the typical plates of Reggio Emilia: tortelli, lasagne, cappelletti, erbazzone, different types of condiments for pasta, and traditional desserts. We will eat what we have cooked together for lunch. We can also visit local wine cellars, Parmesan cheese producers and balsamic vinegar producers.
It is also possible to go to the market with the Italian teachers to buy the necessary ingredients for the day and to learn the way in which to ask for and purchase goods from the market in Italian.
The courses are held at the agriturismo where rooms are available for overnight accommodation. The agriturismo is located 4 kms from the center of Reggio Emilia and is easily reached by bus or by bicycle.
