COOKING LESSONS

Have you ever wanted to learn how to cook authentic Italian cuisine? At Lake Como Hostel you are in the right place.
Pasta al Pesto, Lasagna, Gnocchi, Tiramisù…you will learn how to prepare such delicious dishes in an informal and friendly environment, with the wonderful view of Lake Como just in front of you.
Cooking classes are organised on demand (you can also join a group that has already booked a class) and are run, in Italian or English, by the hostel’s cooks.
After some historical and regional notions of the daY’s menu and a few simple instructions, you will be ready to roll up your sleeves for hands-on preparation of the meal! At the end of the class you will enjoy the fruit of your labor, drinking a glass of wine and obviously ending with a cup of a good espresso coffee!
