What you'll do

Our classes are 3 hours long and consist of 2 hours of personalized cooking instruction during which we will prepare and learn the basic concepts of different kinds of dough and their application. We'll prepare a 3 course meal focused on classic Italian staples:
We'll start by learning the history and preparing a classic pesto alla genovese which we are going to serve with trenette pasta.
Then we'll proceed making a delicious chicken involution filled with prosciutto di parma and melty fontina cheese to be served with 2 side orders: a roasted garlic mashed potatoes and a savory zucchine in scapece, a Neapolitan specialty.
To finish our meal on a sweet note we'll prepare the most celebrated Italian dessert: Tiramisu'!

Finally for the last hour, our guests will sit down in our cozy dining room and they will be served everything we've prepared together.

Meet your host, Ivan

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I was raised in the coastal northern Italian city of Trieste, a stone throw of distance from Venice. At age 14 I started working in some of the busiest and best restaurants. First in Italy, on the Adriatic riviera and in the Dolomites, eventually expanding my horizons to work in Vienna, Bruxelles and finally landing over the pond in New York City in 1998.
Since then, I worked in many bastions of Italian cuisine in the Big Apple and I've been featured many times in the New York Times, Esquire, the Michelin guide and I'm being recognized by my peers by being bestowed the title of Master Chef in Italian Cuisine by the Academia Barilla and featured in Best Chef America in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
In 2016 I started my own cooking school Red Inside Culinary to pass on all my hard earned experience to anyone who loves food and life.
