Classic Italian Cookery Class

Share our passion for Italian cooking on this cooking class. Master pasta and sauce recipes as you take iconic Tuscan and Sicilian food to the next level.

Italian cookery is about embracing fresh produce and seasonal crops, celebrating each new vegetable or pulse with a new dish. During this Italian cooking class your taste buds will be whisked to Tuscany and Umbria as we teach you how to make your own pasta, build your confidence in your kitchen skills and create modern twists on iconic Italian dishes.

Learn how to rustle up a whole Italian feast; from a quick and simple pesto sauce through to a series of melt-in-your-mouth surprisingly fast, delicious Italian desserts including an easy no-churn ice cream alternative. Finish off with an espresso and take home Italian recipes to enjoy time and time again.

Looking for our Authentic Italian Pasta Masterclass?

A lot more pasta but just as full on flavour, our Authentic Italian Pasta Masterclass will have you making pasta from scratch and whipping up accompanying sauces. It's a great companion to this Classic Italian course.


Excellent Italian cooking course

We went to Food at 52 for an Italian cooking course last night and cannot recommend it enough! It was a fun, relaxed evening but also very informative and full of tips and recipes that we can't wait to try at home for ourselves.

So FUN!!

I flew from the states and went to this cooking class the same day I arrived and I am so glad I did. The staff were all lovely and welcoming and the food we made? Amazing!! It was Italian night and we made homemade pasta among many other delicious things. Needless to say, none of us went home hungry! There was plenty of wine and great conversation throughout the night and the staff was amazing. Thank you Food at 52 team for a great start to my London vacation. My recommendation - Book it!
