We had such a brilliant time cooking at CIBO. We have learned so much and finished with some food we were very proud of. The advice given was helpful and supportive and it was great to chat to Alessandra whilst we cooked.

We did a half day course with chef Stefano where we made bolognese sauce, meatballs, tortolonni and tagliatelle. It was both instructive and really enjoyable. Stefano was a great teacher and we would definitely come back to learn more! Highly recommended.

參加了Cibo的五天課,發現Cibo是一所認真的廚藝學校。在這五天,學員不但有機會親手做新鮮意粉,燉飯,pizza,更能在每天早上逛街市時買到最當造的食材入饌,是一個可以令人對意式菜有更深刻了解的課程。 As a Italian food lover, I had been searching for serious cooking class in Italy. Luckily, I found Cibo and spent 5 days there. The class covers the dishes I want to learn, like fresh pasta, Bolognese sauce, risotto and pizza. I particularly appreciate...More
