Market-to-Table Day Class in Bologna
My day class begins with a visit to the oldest street market in Bologna!
When? The cooking classes are offered year round every day except Sunday and National Holidays, when food shops and the food market are shut. They are held mornings only, (finishing mid-afternoon), for very small groups as below. Classes are not offered in the middle two weeks of August, when much of the city shuts down as people go the coast for their midsummer beach holiday.
How many people on a class? These custom classes are for just 1 to max. 4 participants, but I make an exception and take up to 6 people if you are family or friends travelling together. Children are very welcome on closed family groups! You may also choose to keep the class private.
How long? Each class lasts about 7 hours between time at the market and shopping, and then making and eating a three course meal. And is, I hope, a memorable Bologna culinary experience! Usually the class ends sometimebe between 4 and 4.30 pm but if you have trains to catch I can make sure we finish in time!
How does the day go?
The Primo is the carbohydrate course – if you choose this course you get to choose between pasta (either bought fresh or made by you), risotto, soup or in colder weather, potato gnocchi or polenta.
*Please note that if you join a previously booked class you need to go along with the menu choices made by those who booked first.
How do I book?
To book a date firmly you need to send your home mailing address and make a down payment. Discounts are available for taking more than one class, for children aged 13 or under, and for family or friend groups of 4, 5 or 6 booking together.
