Italian food, wine, and recipes. The language. The music. The beauty of Italy's landscape and hidden treasures. The people. The Italian lifestyle.
We Will Bring Italy to You!
Eat, Drink, and Cook Italian at Home
Do you know how Italians really eat? You may know that we have an aperitivo, followed by an antipasto, a primo, a secondo with a contorno, a dolce, and finally a digestivo. In our everyday life, though, we tend to mix and match 2 or at most 3 of these courses. And we'll show you how. In our Italian Home Cooking (made simple!) online school you will learn how to put an authentic Italian meal together.
+ You'll get step-by-step local Italian recipes that you can download (to create your very own family recipe book!) and that serve 2 people so that you stop cooking for an army and prepare the right portions.
+ You'll get to watch recipe videos with our local chefs Cristina, Mamma Giuliana, and Carla.
+ You'll get a weekly 'menu of the day' so that you can easily prepare an Italian homemade meal.
+ You'll also get the perfect Italian food and wine pairing for each dish and meal plan that our sommelier Eric selected for you.

Listen to Italian Music at Home
Italians are notoriously loud. We love talking and laughing ... and music! So we thought, why not create a playlist with all of our favorite Italian songs?! In our Italian Home Cooking (made simple!) online school you will discover and love the Italian songs that we grew up with as well as the latest and most popular ones.
+ You'll have access to our private playlist on Spotify so that you can listen to it whenever you want.
+ You'll get to hear legendary Italian musicians and songwriters like Lucio Battisti, Claudio Baglioni, Mina, Lucio Dalla, Domenico Modugno, just to mention a few.

+ Our playlist will grow and grow and grow.
See the Beauty of Italy from Home
So many of you have told us how much you miss traveling to Italy, seeing the many beautiful places there are, and just taking in the Italian vibes. In our Italian Home Cooking (made simple!) online school you will be able to visit Italy from home. Yes!
