3 Secrets to the Mediterranean lifestyle - health, happiness and simplified living!

Best Pasta Making in Italy

Unique Pasta Tasting At Award-Winning School

One of the beautiful highlights of Dario’s training of world-class chefs for their Post Diploma Program in Italian cuisine is getting to experience great home-cooking food at exceptional destinations and top restaurants around the world.

Today, one such destination is Alma, the Award Winning Cooking School that Dario is affiliated with. It’s our pleasure to come here every year, as they showcase their various menus. It’s a top-notch cooking school, celebrating their cooking achievements, and their menus present pasta making from start to finish, in addition to delectable desserts.

Godfather of Italian Cuisine

Like the well-known Italian Godfather movies, the Alma Cooking School was founded by the Godfather of Italian cuisine, Gualtiero Marchesi. The chef had his first experience in the kitchen when his parents ran the hotel and restaurant, L’Alberga del Mercato. It is unanimously believed in cooking circles that chef Gualtiero creates the Italian version of the French nouvelle cuisine.

Dario was trained with this master chef and also worked with him accordingly for many years. Like Dario, Gualtiero was born in Milan, and both men’s cooking techniques are being used all over the world today. Master chef Gualtiero Marchesi died in December 2017.
