La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine

At La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine, we want you to discover our food, our chefs, and the producers who inspire us through our selection of cooking classes.

Beloved Chef Lidia Bastianich has handcrafted a variety of classes and events at our cooking school, each offering a unique culinary experience. Open to all ages, La Scuola is a place where you are encouraged to play with your food through free live demonstrations and ticketed hands-on classes. Learn to shape gnocchi, cook Italian regional dishes, pronounce “bruschetta” like a true Italian, and taste the difference between an extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany vs. Sicily. La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine is Italy for food lovers, curated by people who are passionate about food and drink.

Eataly chose Valcucine to design our cooking school because we believe in the art of craftmanship, especially when it comes to food. Valcucine designs timeless kitchens that are made to last generations. La Scuola di Eataly by Valcucine reminds us that some of the most meaningful shared experiences take place in the kitchen.
