Unforgettable Cooking Holidays for Lovers of Italy and Italian Food

Since 1999

Cook Italy – the longest established full time Bologna cooking school, since 1999 celebrating the richness and variety of Italian regional cuisines through hands-on cooking classes that are also about having a good time.

Relaxed Atmosphere

In a warm relaxed atmosphere we prepare attractive, delicious dishes that are truly Italian, for instance Tuscany, Bologna or Milan traditional cuisine. We use very few ingredients at their superb seasonal peak, simply and skillfully prepared to enhance their excellence.

Convivial Company

We enjoy memorable Italian meals in a beautiful setting, with good wine and convivial company. This is at the heart of what a Cook Italy cooking vacation is all about.
