A very (!) personal atmosphere, an extensive explanation of traditional Italian dishes that are easy to cook. Just as we had indicated as our wish.

Francesco is a a wonderfull host. She combines het coooking experience with a personal approach while teaching you the finesses of the Italian kitchen. She, and her husband, make you feel at home in their beautiful house and garden. We chose the regional recipes and Francesca included our special wish for a soup. Francesca, thanks a lot for a magnificent and tastefulll experience. If you are on a holiday near Lago Maggiore or Lago d’Orta you should really take a cooking class at ‘Cook on the lakes’! By the way, we felt very safe because she took all corona measures seriously.

It was a great experience to cook with Francesca- she has a beautiful place in the woods and her knowledge about cooking and baking is incredible. We learned a lot and had much fun. It seemed like cooking with a friend or family. There was no problem to follow the Covid-19 regulations. We will definitely come back! Kirsten and Carla from Freiburg, Germany.

Francesca is a warm person and a great teacher. She welcomed us into her beautiful house and amazing kitchen. We did the risotto and tiramisu class, as we love risotto and we want to cook it at home. She is very passionate about Italian food and traditions and made sure we understand the basic principles of cooking a delicious risotto. We had a great time and planning to go back for another cooking class 😉

Francesca is friendly, easy going and absolutely a good teacher. On this day we had 3 recipes: PIZZA , FOCACCIA and PANZEROTTI. I found very interesting particularly to learn about the the types of wheat and how they influence the dough. It was for sure a great experience that I’ll help me to bake much better pizzas in the future. Thank you very much for the amazing Sunday. I recommend fro everyone that is looking to improve their cooking skills and enjoy a nice day in Novara.
