Whether you’re kneading the dough for the perfect pizza, crafting delicate pasta, or stirring a rich and savory ragù, the cooking class at Fattoria Terranova promises an engaging and rewarding experience.

A Feast Among Friends
The highlight of the cooking class is sitting down to enjoy the fruits of your labor. This communal meal, set in a rustic and inviting setting, not only showcases the dishes you’ve prepared but also embodies the Italian spirit of gathering around the table. Paired with local wines and surrounded by new friends, this meal becomes a celebration of Italian culture and the simple joy of sharing good food.
