Italian food from this region encompasses everything from fish appetizers, to typical risottos and meat dishes. Not to mention the desserts, such as the fragrant “zaeti” biscuits or the typical zabaione! 

    So from fresh pasta, to meat, fish and vegetables, with this cooking lesson you will have the authentic experience of being an italian cook fo a day!
