The gf cooking course was very well thought. Mama Isa's Cooking School is the best!

All the gluten free recipes were delicious, and classes were easy to follow.

We attended a week long cooking course and it was amazing.

Each recipe concentrated on new food preparation and cooking techniques.

My son enjoyed it a lot and felt very proud of himself after completing each recipe.

I will be looking to do more advanced courses in the near future.

Taught the basics through to more complex dishes about authentic gluten free recipes.

Thank you very much.

Highly recommended.

I found this gluten free cooking classes and they were very fun and informative! I loved learning about the gluten free ingredients and products we used and the gluten free recipes we are making! I really enjoyed the gluten free pasta making and focaccia making techniques and the tips as we went along. Chef ISA is a great teacher! It was definitely worth the money! I give it 5 STAR OUT OF 5!

Our gluten free cooking class was AMAZING!! Everything was perfect. We booked a gluten free cooking class for a group of 6 and had a wonderful experience. From the beginning, it was easy to communicate with chef Isa. And the class itself was so much informative and fun. Most importantly, everything we made was delicious and of course gluten free! We had a few guests who were vegetarian and vegan, and the chef was so accommodating. This was my first cooking class and it certainly will not be my last. It was such a special and fun experience. Thank you for providing this gluten free course and making us much more confident in the kitchen! I highly recommend this class or any of their classes.

Great gluten free hands on cooking class, great teacher and really interesting yummy! Four of us spent a fantastic day in class with Chef Isa learning about flour-free alternative and authentic Italian recipes to prepare a selection of dishes. Isa is a natural teacher and as we worked through the dishes she provided great tricks and tips. I look forward to someday coming back for other classes and would definitely recommend Mama Isa's Cooking School if you're looking for a unique gluten free experience and to create some delicious memories of Italian Food! Take a look or her website: https://isacookinpadua.altervista.org/gluten-free-classes.html

Mama Isa's gluten free cooking class was superb!

We had the best time and even my wife who is not gluten free loved every second and enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish!

The fresh gf homemade pasta, a creamy risotto and of course the famous gluten free chocolate cake "Torta Caprese" was amazing! We are so happy we made the decision to spend our time with chef Isa. They are one of a kind. THANK YOU! Make sure you go to her class.

A wonderful week long cooking course completely gluten free. What a great experience! During the week Chef Isa - a talented chef - taught us how to make gluten free recipes, every day different pasta, pizza, focaccia, risotto, meat, fish, desserts, gelatos. Of course gluten free. During the course only 3 people! She shares her tips and tricks on how to prepare and handle the foods. The course lasts a week and it was a food coma ;-) We highly recommend visiting her cooking school!

Week Long Gluten Free Cooking Course for Celiacs. We chose to take the week long gluten free course in December with my husband : https://isacookinpadua.altervista.org/week-gluten-free-cooking-course.html Chef Isa did an amazing job of tailoring the gf cooking course to our needs and desires. Group sizes will not exceed 4 guests!

We spent about 4-5 hours each day, cooking and talking, with wine after most of the pasta making or bread making or cooking work was done, of course.

We made and some of the classic Italian GF pastas from scratch. It was amazing.

We most appreciated being able to go over finer points of plating, finishing dishes, wines, and culinary tips/tricks.

The School has an impressive array of culinary and pasta tools and supplies.

Chef Isa did her best to give personal attention to us.

Some of what we covered (of course gluten free): stocks and risotto, fettuccine, gnocchi, focaccia, pizza, ravioli, meat and fish dishes, gelatos, tiramisu, chocolate torta caprese.

I recommend without hesitation the week long gluten free course for celiacs. Isa really terrific knowledgeable chef and working with her was a joy.

My husband and I had a fantastic time. One day would not have been enough.

You can take more than 12 different gluten free cooking courses.

Students learn to make some famous Italian dishes but gluten free dishes. A gluten free diet/lifestyle does not have to be boring! In these classes, students will start to learn dishes such as egg pasta or gf pizzas or creamy risotto gf. The school accepts beginners or more advanced cooks! You cook up some delicious foods and you have a great time learning at the same time!

This gluten free course was AMAZING! Personalized and everything was well-done and safe. Chef Isa went above and beyond to meet the needs of our variety of dietary needs - gluten-free, no vegetarian and even one guest who doesn’t eat dairy food. We were so grateful for her attention to gluten-free needs as eating in Italy can be a challenge for a person with Celiac disease. We made delicious gluten free pasta from scratch and many other GF recipes. Definitely the best cooking classes we have taken!

This is the third or fourth hands-on cooking class that my husband and I have taken at the Mama Isa's Cooking School over the past 10 years.

Whenever we’re visiting Venice or Veneto region or Italy on our week-long stay, I always book a gluten free cooking class well in advance of our visit because these are very popular and fun and can sell-out if you don’t reserve in advance!

The Gluten Free Hands-On Cooking Class is limited to only 4-6 total attendees each class.

The School offers different menus and gluten free recipes each day so it’s great to get to choose what you’d like to learn how to prepare.

Our last gluten free class included these dishes: Homemade Fresh Gluten Free Pasta with Guanciale Pancetta Amatriciana Sauce, Branzino baked in a salt crust, and Hazelnut Panna Cotta. Delicious!

The one day gf class includes complimentary wine, homemade limoncello liqueur and a lovely entree antipasto.

It makes for a wonderful entertainment complete with a delicious meal. Enjoy!

The week gluten free cooking course was the experience of a lifetime!

My husband and I took a week long gluten free course at Mama Isa's Cooking School.

What a wonderful cooking adventure! We both had an absolute blast.

Chef Isa told us that we would become addicted to Italy. She was right!

This is the perfect way to go.

All the details (about accommodation, gluten free recipes, meals, travel infos) are pleasantly handled by Isa.

Not only did we get to enjoy fabulous and authentic gluten free food, suggestions, and accommodation, but we got history lessons too, because the chef is a food historian!

All we had to do was enjoy...enjoy the enjoy the gluten free food and wine, enjoy cooking with great chef!

Can't wait to go again.

We've been on many trips to Italy over the years. This exploration of gluten free culture, gluten free food/wine in Italy was the most and best immersive experience we've ever had.

The chef, sous chef are such incredible people who personalize and care and make you feel part of their extended families for this very special week in Italy.

Add this to your bucket list for sure!

Mama Isa's Cooking School is one of the best week long cooking courses I have taken. It was easy to register for the week course, gluten free of course! The week long course about gluten free recipes is well organized, full of instructions and fun.

Great gluten free cooking class, great teacher and proof that homemade pasta gf, gf pizza, and desserts can be gluten-free and really yummy!

A hands on lesson not a demonstration.

A must do if you want to learn how to cook an authentic gf meal in Italy.

A friend & I took a gluten free cooking class with Chef Isa while visiting Venice and we had such a great time!

We made a delicious gluten free pizza topped with Parma Ham as an appetizer and then learned to make homemade spinach & ricotta ravioli (gluten free) with a sage butter sauce.

Chef Isa was awesome; so friendly and so detailed in the instruction.

Great tips & tricks to ensure we can replicate the recipe at home.

The food was delicious and the experience was truly memorable.

If you enjoy cooking you'll love this experience!

I recently attended the 3 day gluten free cooking course at The Mama Isa's Cooking School. The course was very well organized, taught, accessible and hands on. The teacher was knowledgable and friendly and the food was delicious!

I appreciate the fantastic gluten free tagliatelle from scratch, pizza gluten free, fish and meat with vegetables, gf desserts and gf gelatos!

I now have a range of authentic recipes that allow me to meet my own health needs, and cook for a family without cooking different food for each of us.

I would highly recommend the course to those wishing to increase their knowledge!

What a beautiful kitchen! We munched on an appetizer platter (gluten free of course) and drank prosecco while preparing our gluten free meal. The gluten free cooking class was fantastic: completely hands on!

Isa was easy to work with considering we had one vegan and 3 plant based ladies among us. She has a wide range of menus to choose from. She gave us great tips for cooking as well as buying pasta tools.

I highly recommend this cooking class. We are already thinking of having another course together with Isa

What a great gluten free cooking class! Chef Isa is a talented chef who taught us how to make gluten free pasta from scratch , and it was SO delicious! She shares her family tips and tricks on how to prepare and handle the dishes. She expertly guided us in creating three dishes, tagliatelle, duck ragu bolognese sauce, and homemade gelato gluten free from scratch. We had an amazing day learning from Chef Isa, eating our fabulous meal paired with wonderful wines.

We highly recommend visiting her gluten free cooking class .

A must-do in Italy.
