Learn how to cook, from basic to creative cooking.

Creative cooking is not just putting random ingredients together with an aesthetic touch. Rather it is about creating new dishes that tell a small story, tickle, and excite all our senses and especially our imagination!

Aesthetic is important because we eat with our eyes (first), so the glance is fundamental to amaze and create expectation and suspense, but those promises and expectations must and confirmed in the smell and ultimately in the taste.

A dish is a game of consistencies, colors, and flavors that mix and harmonize with each other!

About Me

I am Margherita, and I am a food geek.
I have always been attracted by everything related to food: from unusual ingredients, traditional recipes or exciting new combinations.
I had great teachers, starting from the women in my family who taught me to understand and to have a brave but respectful attitude towards ingredients.
From there I built my culinary experience, having encountered and worked with amazing chefs who helped me understanding food and cuisine from a higher perspective and expressing my compelling need for newness through my recipes.
I would love to share my knowledge and love for cuisine teaching you how to climb the steps of your culinary journey.

Italian for traveling and conversations, Italian cooking, English conversation
Italy is the best holiday destination, sunny, with great art and history and delicious food but if you don't speak their language you will end up eating a type of fish instead of the pasta you order. I will help you out to not end up with a stomachache and to have the possibility to be able to ask where is the Fontana di Trevi. Besides the language, I can also teach you how to cook the best Italian pasta and lasagne or maccheroni.
