After getting acquainted, board a comfortable train to Lake Como, and relax on your journey to Como, the vibrant city at the southern end of the lake. After roughly an hour, arrive at Como and take the short ferry ride to Blevio, set on the lake’s eastern banks. As you cruise, admire the views of the luxury villas, gardens and cliffs that frame the lake, and gaze out over the surrounding mountains. Go ashore at Blevio, and head for the cooking school where your private culinary class will take place. Meet the friendly chef, and make yourself at home in the charming kitchen. Enjoy a welcome drink and snacks as you chat about the 2-course lunch menu, and once you’re ready, set about preparing the dishes, drawn from different regions of Italy. With guidance from your chef, use the fresh ingredients to conjure up a main dish such as homemade pasta or risotto. Then, follow it up by making a classic Italian dessert such as tiramisu, creating a delectable final flourish to your meal. After your 2.5-hour class and with everything ready, sit down with your chef and enjoy your creations. Get feedback on your dishes, hear about the history of each recipe, and wash down your food with a delicious Italian wine, specially chosen to complement your meal. Following lunch, bid farewell to your chef, and catch the ferry back to Como, admiring more of the enchanting scenery as you cruise. Then, finish your visit with a leisurely walking tour of Como’s main sights, including the picturesque waterfront, with your guide. Lastly, return by train to Milan, where your tour ends at the station.

Absolutely horrible experience except for beautiful view of Lake Como
Sep 2018 • Friends
The trip started horribly with poor instructions on how to meet our guide resulting in an hour delay of departure. This is not a cooking class by any stretch of the word. Chef Momi is quite charismatic but did not attempt to teach us anything or talk about any of the food. We chopped zucchini and cleaned mussels with assistant cooks who were pleasant. we did not watch or help with any cooking and were served a lunch that was nice but not great. The description of the class we booked outlined a wonderful, food and learning experience with wine and wonderful foods and that was a lie. Our tour guide was pleasant and informed but that was not the reason we booked this tour.

Hello Joan P, we are very sorry for your horrible experience as you called it. To be honest I think you are not descriving correctly all the facts so I am here to explain the situation correctly in order to clarify everything especially for other travelers intersted in taking this beautiful tour . First of all, you booked this tour through an online platform that resell our tours and after we told them to change the meeting point they didn't changed it so you were waiting at the wrong meeting point while the guide was at the ordinary meeting point. then you were surprise that the tour was private while it is written that is a Private experience with our Chef, Guide and so on.. let's go on, you took the train to reach Como and then our Chef Momi picked you up from the station to take you to his Restaurant, you arrived at Momi place which is simply wonderful, directly on the Lake with a full view on the Lake. But let's talk about the cooking class, We take the opportunity given by this review to clarify what can be expected during our cooking class. This is a Real experience in real restaurant, you are involved in the preparation of the menu of the day. You follow Momi's assistant making fresh pasta, then another assistant cook for the second dish of the day and the same thing with the dessert. In the meanwhile chef Momi is always there as supervisor and explaining some of his secretes that can be useful at home also. After this full immersion it is time to have lunch. Your lunch is served with full view on the lake, the menù is served with a bottle of wine and free time for relax after the cooking experience. After lunch our Guide escort you by boat to Como for a nice walking tour before leaving the town.

A fun trip to Lake Como
Oct 2017 • Friends
Our guide Renzo chatted to us all the way to Como on the train giving us a good overview of the area and was willing to answer any questions. After disembarking the train we walked to a street corner where we were picked up by Momi, the chef, in his trusty van and continued to the markets.
Momi was relaxed and cheerful as he collected his fresh produce, asking us if we had any special requests. After which he drove us along a windy road beside Lake Como to the restaurant. The setting was beautiful. We were offered coffee before we entered the kitchen.
We were given various chopping tasks while Momi supervised the cooking of lunch, giving us instructions on how to cook each dish. I have never encountered such a happy, relaxed chef and it reflected in the tempo of all who worked there. We were offered an aperitif while preparing the pasta.
The weather was perfect for sitting outside so we were taken to our table with the most spectacular view of Lake Como. We were offered wine with lunch and then we were presented with several courses we had watched/helped being prepared earlier.
Delicious.
After lunch Momi drove us back to the train station. Renzo was in no hurry to board the train and took us on a walking tour of Como, famous for its silk.
Nothing was too much trouble for Renzo and he was a lovely guide. He even rescued my jacket which I left at the restaurant and returned it to me in Milan.
