Do you have something to celebrate during your holiday? Or would you like a cooking class from an experienced Italian chef? Let CooksApp know, and they organise the evening or afternoon for you, with local dishes and an Italian cook who also speaks English.
Price from € 59 per person for a chef at home and from € 79 per person for a cooking class.
From the 2020 season there is a course called Funny Cooking Class especially designed for children and teenagers from €55 per person.
The cook that we had arranged was a great success. What a wonderful formula, thanks for the tip !!
