We were a group of 10 people who worked with Aurora on a great meal! We scheduled with her for a team building dinner and it was worth every penny! We all learned so much and laughed the entire time. The pasta was unanimously voted the best weve ever had, the prosecco and wine helped us stay focused haha! and from beginning to end we thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and would recommend it to anyone in Milan. We made 4 courses Tagliatelle with Bolognese, spinach ricotta raviolis, lamb, courgette flower fritters, and tiramisu. With 10 people we each had a task, every made their own pasta, and we all contributed to a wonderful evening that left us full and more bonded. Thank you to Aurora and Claudio for welcoming us into their home. The hospitality, amazing recipes, and night of laughter was the highlight of our trip.
My friend and I enjoyed immensely our Evening Cooking Lesson with Dinner in Milan. Aurora is a very talented chef, who also happens to be a personable and wonderful teacher! With the prosecco flowing freely, we made delicious Italian specialties in her well- equipped kitchen in her lovely Milan apartment. After our cooking tasks were completed, we enjoyed eating generous portions and our choice of wines paired with the entrees.
It was a thrill that Aurora's husband, Claudio, joined us for conversation as we sampled our tiramisu we were treated like friends of the family, and appreciated learning more about Italy.
Grazie mille, Aurora and Claudio!
My wife and I took cooking lessons from Aurora on October 19 and while I was slightly skeptical about going but wanted to support my wife in this, it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening! The other three couples there were all part of the same group and the other men had a similar before and after experience as I did. My wife enjoyed the evening participating with Aurora in preparing our evening meal, which was nothing short of delicious. The tiramisu was the best the other party had experienced in Italy they had tiramisu 2 other times while in Italy and for my only try of it while it Italy, it was really incredible!
If you are considering this event while visiting Milan, I would encourage you to go for it. You will not be disappointed!
What a tremendously informative and satisfying experience! My wife and I had the good fortune to book a date with Italian Wonderwoman Aurora and husband, Claudio. We met a GREAT group of other want-to-be cooks and had an absolute blast learning to make gnocchi, bolognais sauce, ravioli, lamb and tiramisu. After a week of dining in Italy, I'm still waiting to find the equal of the pasta we made in Aurora's lovely apartment with her expert guidance. Terrific fare, abundant and delicious wines, fun and interesting conversation with new friends, it just does not get any better than the time we had! Another interesting note: Aurora is a wonderful painter and you can see her work in her apartment. Will ABSOLUTELY be booking with her again on our next trip!
This experience was the best one I had on my honeymoon. My husband and I loved the cooking class. Aurora was so warm and welcoming from the moment we stepped into her home. My husband and I were running late and she was so accommodating and quickly caught us up to speed making us feel like we didn't miss anything. The food we made and shared at dinner with 7 other Americans at dinner was the best we had while in Italy! We will definitely be trying the recipes at home. Thanks Aurora!
If you are in Milan and enjoy cooking this is a must to do. Aurora and Claudio were the most gracious hosts. We were 6 people and prepared our 4 course dinner from scratch. Fresh tagliatelle pasta, pear and gorgonzola stuffed ravioli,veal saltimbocca and of course Tiramisu. Aurora guide us through all the preparation for each course including making and rolling the dough for the pasta and ravioli.
The best part was getting to eat the delicious meal we created.
This cooking class was a highlight of our short time in Milan. Aurora is a gracious host and fabulous cook! She even printed us a certificate at the conclusion of the evening and sent us the recipes so we could continue to work on our cooking skills :- I highly recommend her cooking class!
