My wife and I did a cooking class with Stefano for lunch. We cooked a full 3-course meal complete with wine pairing. Stefano was wonderful, and showed us some of his Italian trade secrets and helped us understand more about Italian cuisine. This was by far our best day of our trip to Italy and truly a memory for life. Highly recommend this for anyone visiting Alba who loves food, eating, and learning new things.

In Chef Stefano's busy kitchen, every plate and dish produced tells a story about Alba and Piedmont, and should maintain its uniqueness and originality. Your private expert chef's theory is that while you can recreate the same dish repeatedly, using the same techniques and ingredients, your end result will always vary because moods and emotions differ with each individual preparation.
Stefano's passion for food, wine, and local culinary heritage is contagious as he shares his secrets and love of Le Langhe and Piedmont with you in the luxurious ambiance of the renovated castle overlooking the nearby Valley del Tanaro. Stefano uses personally-selected, natural, high-quality ingredients and innovative ideas to create dishes brimming with passion and flavor for both his wonderful cooking lessons and during his restaurant's regular service.
In this unique cooking class near the Piedmont region's charming city of Alba (also known globally as being the Italian capital city of the sought-after black and white truffles), you'll learn how to create delicious Piemontese favorites while your English-speaking expert local chef inspires you with his genuine passion for these regional specialties.
During this private cooking lesson, located in a restored castle in a small typical Piemontese town, Chef Stefano will teach you why his dishes are compared to a piece of symphonic music. You will cook a traditional 4-course meal guided by Stefano in his modern kitchen infused with the aromas and flavors of Italian cuisine.
Following this, enjoy your fantastic meal in the elegant dining room with beautiful decor and paired with delicious local wines.
