Liaise with vendors, butchers, and bakers as you pick out the tastiest ingredients to prepare your meal. With your groceries in hand, take a short walk to the cooking school, a brand-new facility in the heart of the city. Put on your apron and follow the chef's instructions in order to create exquisite traditional dishes. Learn how to create dishes such as cheese fondue, ragout, fresh hand-rolled pasta, and dessert. Measure, mince, mix, season, and stir to create authentic Milanese cuisine.  Take a break to savor a selection of premium wines and local cheeses.
