The cooking workshops

There are three courses in which you spend 3 hours in the kitchen. It is immediately apron-on and hands in the flour. We will learn you how to prepare seven authentic recipes and master the basic skills to prepare much more dishes. After the courses the dishes you made will be served in a great Italian lunch. Marco will choose appropriate wines so that you and your fellow students can enjoy a fantastic lunch.

Stay in an Apartment,

You can stay in a beautifully converted farm. You have 3 options: 1 the Old Farm (6-8 people), 2 the stylish apartments (2-4 people). There is also the option to stay in a cottage (2-4 people) at a 10 min drive from the main location. The kitchen is ofcourse well equipped in all locations.
