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.

I had the pleasure of attending an in-person cooking class led by Chef Mariana, and I must say it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Chef Mariana's expertise and passion for cooking shone through as she guided us through the art of pasta making. Her explanations were thorough, making the process easy to understand, even for beginners. The class was a delightful blend of learning and hands-on experience. We not only learned how to make two different types of pasta but also received detailed instructions on crafting a delectable vegetable Bolognese sauce and mastering the intricacies of crafting a perfect tiramisu. Chef Mariana's teaching style was engaging and patient, making the whole experience enjoyable and educational. What stood out was Chef Mariana's flexibility and attention to individual needs. She graciously modified the menu to accommodate my dietary restrictions without compromising on taste or quality, ensuring that everyone could fully participate and enjoy the dishes. The setting for the class was equally impressive. The apartment where the cooking class took place boasted one of the most breathtaking views of the city I've ever seen. The combination of great food, expert teaching, and a stunning backdrop created an ambiance that was truly unforgettable. I highly recommend this cooking class to anyone looking for an exceptional culinary experience. Chef Mariana's skills, along with her accommodating and knowledgeable approach, make this class a must-do. I'm already considering returning for their sushi class, as I'm confident it will be just as exceptional as this one. Whether for friends, family, or personal enrichment, this cooking class is a culinary adventure that's worth every moment.
