We absolutely loved our experience at La Cucina di Sandra. We enjoyed a "Night in Rome" with Sandra and her husband in their converted warehouse space which is filled with warmth and hospitality (not to mention amazing cooking aromas).

Where else in Melbourne can you have the experience of such an intimate chefs table? The classes are run in the stunning warehouse conversion that is Sandra's home. The beautiful, relaxed atmosphere sets the scene for a night of gastronomic delight. The quality, innovation and fresh approach to lesser known aspects of Italian cuisine has to be experienced to be believed. This truely is a cooking and eating experience like no other!

The evening at Sandra's cooking school was exceptional. Being welcomed into the home of a truly passionate and generous food lover set the perfect mood. Once relaxed and seated with a glass of wine you then watch several magnificent courses prepared for you whilst hearing the interesting facts about the ingredients and why they were selected (quality and deliciousness amongst other things). Sandra also shares her knowledge of local produce and suppliers as well as some genius cooking tips. There's also great conversation with the other students/attendees.
