A bustling kitchen filled with laughter, the aromas of tomatoes, and a sprinkle of flour in the air. That’s the magic of cooking classes!

Food has this amazing power to unite even the most unlikely of culinary comrades. Think about it – when you’re chopping veggies or stirring a simmering sauce with a group of strangers-turned-co-chefs, you’re not just making a meal, you’re creating memories.

It’s like a delicious bonding experience! As you navigate the recipe together, there’s a beautiful chaos that unfolds. Someone might accidentally add a tad too much salt, while another person might unleash their secret talent for perfectly flipping tortilla. And let’s not forget the joy of tasting each other’s creations – from mouthwatering mains to decadent desserts, it’s a feast for the senses!

But it’s not just about the food – it’s about the journey. Cooking classes are a delightful mix of teamwork, creativity, and, let’s be honest, a pinch of culinary chaos. Whether you’re a kitchen novice or a seasoned chef, there’s always something new to learn and laugh about. So, grab your apron, sharpen your knives, and get ready for a cooking adventure filled with flavor, friendship, and plenty of foodie fun!”

Riccardo is an incredible Chef! His Italian background together with so many years abroad have allowed him to develop a unique combination of presentation and culinary skills. I strongly recommend Riccardo for any needs you might have.


Riccardo has been catering all my parties and all my dinners for the last 4 years. His talent is incredible, he has been able to create something new for all my guests every time and I have always received compliments. We also created the so-called "A Tavola Club" in Denver, where 6 to 8 couples used to get together once a month for a gourmet dinner, and every month Riccardo prepared a special menu for us... everyone has always wished to come back for more of his dishes!
