The Italian Larder


“Travel with us on an intimate culinary voyage through Italy, guided by a passion cultivated over a decade. At Pudding Pie Cookery School, my journey into the heart of Italian cuisine began with the tutelage of dear friends, imparting the secrets of authentic flavours. A decade ago, my path intertwined with an Italian love story, marrying into a family whose roots span the gastronomic treasures of Lombardy and Calabria. Surprise someone special with the ultimate Italian cooking experience. Our gift vouchers promise hands-on classes, personalised instruction, and a journey through the heart of Italy’s culinary traditions.

This immersion within my Italian family unveiled a world of culinary traditions and techniques, enriching my understanding and love for authentic Italian fare. Each dish became a story, a connection to centuries-old recipes passed down through generations—a legacy of taste, texture, and technique.

My heart beats for Tuscan cuisine, particularly the warmth of its hearty stews that simmer with history and flavour. From the fragrant Ribollita to the robust Peposo, these dishes hold a special place in my culinary repertoire, infused with the essence of Tuscany’s rustic charm. Looking for a unique and thoughtful gift? Our gift vouchers for bespoke Italian cookery classes are the perfect choice. Ignite a passion for cooking with expert guidance and tantalising recipes.

Now, I invite you to join me on this personal gastronomic journey. Drawing from the wealth of knowledge and experiences gained from my Italian friends and beloved family, I’ve curated bespoke Italian cookery classes tailored to your tastes. Imagine crafting your favourite sauces, mastering breads, perfecting pastries, blending Tapenades, or creating the iconic Pannetone—all within the sanctuary of your own kitchen.

While we prepare to unveil an exquisite collection of Italian hampers and procure the finest Italian produce, let these classes serve as a tantalising preview of the gourmet adventures to come.

Stay tuned as we prepare to introduce a dedicated section on our website, brimming with the essence of Italy’s culinary heritage. Reserve your spot in these bespoke Italian cookery classes, and together, let’s savour, learn, and create memories, one delicious dish at a time.
