The courses are held at:
1) A Holiday Farm in the countryside
Conducted in English or Italian, the courses are set on a holiday farm near Reggio offering optional board and lodging. It is located 4 kms from the center of Reggio Emilia and is easily reached by bus or bicycle. During your stay, the owners can offer many possible activities such as: golf, horseback riding, mountain biking, and nature hikes through the Reggiana hills. Italian lessons are available upon request.
The cookery lessons can also be combined with an Italian language course held on the holiday farm or at Reggio Lingua.
2) Restaurant in the hills
The course is conducted in Italian in a restaurant in the hills to the south of the city with accommodation available in several local B&Bs. Situated 20 km from the centre of the city the area is of great historic and natural interest. Visitors also have the opportunity to explore the castles of Canossa and Rossena, take wonderful walks to age-old stone hamlets and ancient churches, fish in mountain torrents and visit local folk festivals and celebrations.
The cookery lessons can also be combined with an Italian language course held locally or in Reggio Lingua. A car is recommended to get around.
3) Private home
The course is held in Italian in a private home in the city of Reggio Emilia or in the hilly countryside of Canossa. A perfect holiday for individuals or couples who would like to learn Emilian home cooking in a friendly Italian family environment. Their host/hostess will introduce them to the locals and take them to the market to choose the best local produce to be used in the preparation of traditional dishes, handed down through the generations. They can test out their spoken Italian as a guest in an Italian family or at a local B&B.
