Cooking Class and Dinner Testimonials

Events in Massachusetts

“Cristiano, chef Angelo, and Franco hosted a special Tuscan Cooking Class at our home in Bridgewater MA. Together with thirteen of our closest friends, we shared fresh Italian foods, great wine, and lots of stories. We made bruschetta, home made ravioli, beef stew, and apple crisp. It was very special and will likely remain one the most memorable events for all that shared.”

Dinner event in Massachusetts

“Thanks to Chef Angelo and the masterful Cristiano Bonino for a most marvelous evening in Weston. Many of us started out as strangers and by evening end had formed community over marvelous food, drink and amazing conversation. We donned aprons and after a detailed explanation of our tasks split into groups and prepped our respective dishes. Chef Angelo then created his magic. We enjoyed many courses and each one more delicious than the next. The evening flew by yet so many moments are marked in our memories. Again, thanks.”

I felt so lucky to have been able to not only attend but participate. Cristiano is a most engaging, thoughtful, and passionate chef/host, and chef Angelo allowed us to explore our own cooking skills through education, patience and charm. From the deliciously planned menu and beautiful hand picked wines to the stories of Italian food and culture, they created a truly memorable experience!!!! Oh they cleaned up the kitchen too!!

“Cristiano organized a cooking class at the BCAE in Boston. Alessandro and Elisa, the wonderful people from Agriturismo Il Molinello Siena taught us how to make pasta, biscotti and other authentic recipes of Tuscany. The class was so much fun, especially dipping the biscotti in the Vin Santo they brought all the way from Italy. I still can’t believe they got it through customs. I hope some day to travel to Italy on one of his tours.”
