Ristomama opens the doors of the most beautiful Italian houses to travelers in order to give them the opportunity to cook a typical meal and then eat it with the chef, discovering an incredible world made of flavors, aromas, colors and traditions.
The service follows two steps: the cooking class and the meal. In the first part of the meeting the cooking teacher cooks with the guests the menu chosen at time of the booking, teaching them recipes and tricks to get delicious meals using local ingredients and seasonal vegetables. While preparing the dishes along with the cooking teacher, the guests actively participate to the creation of the meal that they are going to eat.
Later, guests and cooking teacher will eat the meal they′ve cooked together, drinking a glass of wine and chatting, just like good friends do. The total duration of the course, meal included, is about 4 hours.
Some cooking teacher also offer the chance to go shopping at the market together. As a matter of fact, the preparation of a meal begins with the selection of the best ingredients: to know where the seasonal vegetables can be found and how to pick the best fruit and vegetables is essential. And if you learn all that hrough the stands of a local market, kissed by the sun and surrounded by a swirl of colors and scents, well, that is an unforgettable experience!
To live the Ristomama experience select the city you are about to visit and choose the cooking teacher that inspires you the most.
Specify the menu you like (please remember that if you book in advance some dishes, that change from season to season, may not be vailable!), the number of people who want to participate and the date of the meeting. When booking you′ll have to make an advance payment; you′ll pay the total amount the day of the lesson, at the cooking teacher′s house.
The payment is carried out in two different moment phases:
The sum is paid online at the moment of the booking. The deposit is also the amount of money that will pay the mediation work carried out by Ristomama. If the users cancel at least 48 hours before the lesson, the amount previously paid is entirely reimbursed. If the users cancel with less than 48 hours before the lesson, the amount previously paid is entirely withheld and used as a reimbursement for the cooking teachers’ work and expenses for the preparation of the cancelled lesson.
