Cucina Italiana Cooking School
The Cucina Italiana Sydney cooking school teaches real Italian cooking, the home cooking that you can only find in a true Italian home, in a historic heritage listed Italian Villa built nearly a century ago by the Melocco Brothers.
It offers cooking classes centered around making Pasta from scratch but involving also traditional Italian meat and vegetable dishes and desserts. The classes last for 4 hours (except the children’s classes which lasts 3 hours) and are mainly themed according to the regions in Italy which acted as inspiration for the dishes taught in the respective class (Toscana, Venice, Emilia Romagna etc.).
Truly a highlight must be the Wood fire oven Class, in which one can learn how to properly fire up the oven in order to cook the perfect pizza, cook a whole fish or a whole chicken under salt, and also experience hands-on dough stretching and pizza preparation.
