Private Chef - Modern Italian Delights

Discover the delights of contemporary Italian dishes created with modern techniques.

In this private chef experience with Chef Mariana, you'll dine on recipes inspired by classic Italian cuisine infused with modern flavor combinations. First, enjoy braised octopus paired with fresh parsley and red onions. Then, savor in a crunchy and creamy agnolotti filled with smoked corn and ricotta cheese in a corn foam sauce, followed by a peppery arugula and fennel salad studded with oranges and parmigiano. For dessert, sink your spoon into a decadent panna cotta.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to accompany the menu, and may request pairing recommendations from the chef upon booking.

My girlfriend and I had the best time celebrating her birthday with a rustic Italian cooking class in Chef Mariana’s beautiful kitchen! Such a comfortable, fun environment with a gorgeous view of the river. We will absolutely be back for a sushi class!!
