La Cucina Caldesi is an Italian cooking school located in the heart of Marylebone in London. Founded by Giancarlo and Katie in 2005, the goal of their cooking school is to share the secrets of the Italian cucina della mamma. The italo-british couple share the secrets of Tuscan cuisine through their school and also have written a couple of cookbooks.
I was offered a voucher by my dearest colleagues for an amazing 4-hr cooking class named Pizza Pizza Pizza. Despite the name we did not only make pizza but also focaccia, some pecorino and olive sticks, a delicious typical salad – Insalata dell’unita – and the best italian cake I ever tried – the Torta Caprese.
I highly recommend this school and will definitely go back. The class was simple and well organized and the atmosphere fantastic. We had lots of fun with Stefano, our teacher. Giancarlo came at the end of the dinner, told us some fun italian stories and did a few magic tricks 🙂
They also have a cooking school in the countryside and a Caffé next to the cooking school in London.
