"How Does A Cucinamore Cooking Party In Your Kitchen Work?"

During the party we will prepare 3 courses. My parties are an informal and fun way to learn about authentic Italian food and the general approach to family style cooking in my country.

The minimum group size is 6 (minimum charge for the party even if fewer people are attending). 
Special conditions and terms apply to groups of 15 participants and up. Please contact me directly for details.

A deposit is required upon reservation and will be fully refunded if a cancellation or rebooking is made 72 hours or more in advance of the event date. No refund will be made after deadline. 

The host is kindly requested to collect the balance from all participants, and then provide total payment on the day of the party.


“How far do you travel for your Cooking Parties?”
I am located in Leesburg and travel to a radius of approximately 1 hour drive away.

“How long does a Cooking Party last?”
Parties last on average approximately 3 hours. I arrive to the location 30 minutes before the reserved starting time. 

“What if the number of my guests changes after I placed my reservation?”
An email requesting confirmation of the party will be sent 7 days prior to the event. You can change the number of participants up to 72 hours before the reserved date/time, as long as the minimum party size is maintained.

Enough with the winter already!

Are you ready to put this winter behind you and welcome a new
"Primavera" (Spring)?

Imagine this for a second:
Friends in your kitchen chit-chatting... open windows to let the warmer air in... great music playing... a glass of chilled wine in your hand...

You and your friends happily working with me on these dishes that you will then be savoring
(or any other ones, because I have plenty for you to pick from):
  • Ricotta, Spinach and Pancetta Crostini
  • Shrimp, Asparagus and White Wine Linguine
  • Baked Mediterranean Vegetables
If the thought of this scenario brightens your day, then you’re just my kind of friend!
It's easy to make this dream come true!
Contact me today to reserve your Primavera Party and get ready for the real fun!

Mention this email and there might be a little special something for you, from my kitchen to yours, with love!
