Our team of culinary, wine and cheese experts shares know-how, tips and insights, live from their home to wherever you are.
We look forward to welcoming you virtually into our homes, cooking and swirling glasses together. We offer informal, interactive group cooking lessons and wine & cheese tastings that change every month. We love to offer a variety of lessons, but we also repeat favorites by popular demand.
In our virtual classes you meet other Italy-enthusiasts from all over the world. Our live online hands-on lessons are geared toward food and wine lovers like us, and are open to all.

Is there a minimum number of participants required for a lesson to run?

For cooking classes, there is a minimum of three (3) registered devices needed for the class to run;
For wine & cheese tastings, there is a minimum of five (5) registered devices needed for the class to run;
Participants who have registered will be notified of any change in class time by the following deadlines:
Cooking classes: no later than 48 hours prior to the start of the lesson;

In the event that the class date and time are changed, participants have the option to A) participate in the newly scheduled lesson, B) use the credit toward a future lesson, or C) receive a full refund.

We booked a pasta-making class through Casa Mia Tours. Being a pastry chef myself, I have pretty high expectations for a cooking class and this experience met them all, and even exceeded some!Lisa AUSA
