The School


As to play Chopin you need to have a solid musical background, to cook a fish you need to know the quality of its meat

“The example is the highest form of teaching

By Gualtiero Marchesi – Top Chef and founder of modern Italian cuisine


The “Cucina degli Ulivi” (Olive trees cuisine) was born by the concept to realize a school for passionate amateurs who love cooking and wish to learn and/or improve its skills.

From traditional dishes to innovative cuisine.

A venue where you can learn and practice professional Chef’ secrets.

Classes have been realized for individuals and small group of people and can be held privately by tailored sessions held at the school or even at people’s home.

Since 2011 the school is also itinerant and cooking classes are now held periodically all around the globe..
