Attending a cooking class, on holiday

Lessons from the great chefs: spice up your holiday

Being a good cook means tempting and captivating your diners, and having fun. So why not attend a cooking class taught by Forte Village’s fantastic chefs? Our superb Cooking Academy will teach you the basics of the very best traditional Italian and international cuisine, how to perfect one of its pièces de résistance, or how to create a whole menu. If you really love your family and friends and if you want to unleash your inner cooking talent, then don’t miss this unique opportunity. One cooking lesson a day, and you can show off your new-found skills when you get home.

Cooking Academy lessons will take place in the kitchens of the Forte Gourmet restaurant. Like in the best cooking class, the participants will have their own workspace. The week-long course will show you how to create a whole menu, from nibbles to pasta dishes, including how to make the perfect tomato sauce of course, as well as main courses and pastries. If you prefer, you can take part in just one lesson on a particular theme. All participants will receive a kit comprising a recipe book and apron.
