  • My family of four (husband and two children, 13 and 11) spent 3 wonderful and technique-filled hours with Chef Isa and her husband Stefano learning how to make egg tagliatelle with bolognese ragu and homemade focaccia from scratch. We love to cook and have taken many cooking classes, but Chef Isa really stands out with her (1) focus on technique (such as settling our family debate on whether you put EVOO into a cold or hot pan for sauteeing, or giving us individual feedback on how we kneaded the pasta dough); (2) customization and ability to teach us how to make restaurant-quality allergy friendly recipes (very important in our family); (3) very warm teaching style and focus on passing on treasured family traditions. We learned so much and came away with full bellies, delicious and detailed recipes we know we will use again and again, and great memories. Thank you, Isa and Stefano!
  • Mama Isa’s cooking school is a masterpiece of an Italian cooking school that exemplifies the spirit and elegance of Italian cuisine. For years it was a dream of mine to participate in an Italian cooking class and to learn the art of handmade pasta making, and this experience exceeded all expectations. While traveling through 7 countries, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to partake in one of her week long cooking classes, which turned out to be the highlight of my entire trip. Chef Isa with her talent, patience and warm hospitality will walk you through her family’s recipes and will share her wisdom every step of the way. Her cooking technique is essential, and I loved how she encourages you to take phone videos during class so that you have them to reference when trying these recipes at home. The daily menu is flexible and if there is a particular dish you would like to learn how to make, Chef Isa will do what she can to make it happen. The main dishes you make each day are paired with Italian wines, and believe me when I say you will not leave hungry. By the end of your course, you will walk away with detailed recipes as well as fond memories with a wonderful family. Chef Isa and her family will forever hold a special place in my heart and I am already thinking about returning in the near future. If you have always dreamed of learning true home style Italian cooking, this is the perfect class for you! Thanks for everything chef! Salute!
