Your teacher

I started Cook with Luca because I wanted to teach people how to make amazing traditional Italian soul food from scratch.

The aim of my online classes is that you enjoy yourself and other's company, share ideas and cooking tips and enjoy a glass of wine with a delicious meal.

My public classes are also an opportunity to learn new skills, acquire more knowledge about Italian culture, socialise with like-minded foodies and ultimately start to feel confident in the kitchen when inviting friends and family over for a meal!
