Buon Appetito Friuli is a hands-on cooking school located in one of Friuli’s most enchanting settings: the 13th century Casanova castle on the gentle slopes of the Collio hills, only about one-hour drive from Venice and only few minutes from Slovenia. The manor, situated on a sixty-hectare estate, is surrounded by vineyards, a magnificent park and a brand new 18-hole golf course. The atmosphere is lovely and peaceful, just the perfect location to enjoy a leisurely vacation mixed with an unforgettable cooking experience.
Cooking lessons take place in the castles' well-equipped kitchen with chef Tonino, an excellent instructor that will teach you how to prepare great Italian and Friulian recipes and pair them with the excellent wines produced in this area.
Courses are suitable for all levels - from beginners to professionals – but they are limited to small groups (max. 8 people) in order to guarantee all participants a personalized service, a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere and give them the possibility to customize their vacation as much as possible.
All classes are hands-on and last approximately 3 hours, followed by lunch or dinner. Meals feature foods prepared during class and consist of three/four courses accompanied by excellent wines produced on the estate.
Following the true Italian way of eating, all meals are prepared using fresh ingredients and what's available in season, to guarantee the best quality and success of all culinary creations
Besides cooking classes, all culinary programs also include market visits, winery tours, day trips to cheese makers and prosciutto factories with private tastings, as well as cultural excursions to the many historical and delightful sites in this scenic corner of Italy and the nearby countries of Austria, Slovenia and Croatia!
Participants can choose to stay in the castle's comfortable suites with private bathroom, all decorated with refined antiques reflecting a different style in each suite and offering incredible views of the Collio hills, or in the charming rooms with mansard ceilings of the castle Inn, a cosy, first-class country house set at the castle's foothills. The Inn, entirely rebuilt on the site of the castle's old tavern, hosts a refined restaurant on the ground floor and ten enchanting suites with private bathroom (some with jacuzzi shower or bath), air conditioning, phone, minibar, hair dryer, satellite TV, on the first floor. All adorned with elegant tapestries and furnishings, they offer delightful views of a breathtaking landscape.
