Discover Something New at La Scuola

At La Scuola di Eataly, we believe that the more you know, the more you enjoy. We want you to discover our food, our chefs, and the producers who inspire us.

Beloved Chef Lidia Bastianich has handcrafted a variety of classes and events at our cooking school, each offering a unique culinary experience. Whether a cooking class, an introduction to cheesemaking, or a wine tasting, La Scuola’s events include delicious dishes made before your eyes, ever-flowing drinks, and – of course – stories about the culinary world (think: dinner and a show).

When you participate in any cooking class at La Scuola, you're eligible for 10% off all retail purchases made in Eataly's market on the day of the class. At the end of class, you’ll receive a grocery list, adapted recipes, and tasting notes, so that you’re ready to recreate the evening in your own kitchen.

La Scuola di Eataly is Italy for food lovers, curated by people who are passionate about food and drink. Sign up yourself, or give the ultimate experiential gift!
