What you'll do

While visiting Bergamo, one of the most charming cities in Lombardy, why not try its local cheese? And why not pair it with its excellent local wine? Go beyond the soft mozzarella and the crumbly Parmesan to experience other regional specialties from Lombardy, like gorgonzola, mascarpone, taleggio, bitto… We taste a gourmet selection of regional cheeses. I will make you travel through this fantastic region by discovering: - 6 typical and yummy cheeses, - 3 typical and delicious cold cuts - 3 local wines - home-made cheese focaccia - some polenta taragna - some cakes I will describe the selected cheeses in a simple way that is not so daunting! This will take place in my house, where you can also experience the classic Italian familial dining atmosphere. It’s a great way to learn about Italian food and culture and the time we are going to spend together will be fun, fascinating, friendly and profitable.

Michele

I was a foodie from a young age, always playing in the kitchen and fancying myself as a chef. I started my food activity as personal chef service in the house of people who called me, than I decided to open the doors of my home to all who wish to live an authentic culinary experience. I considers cheese to be an essential part of my food upbringing, as my family owns a restaurant in Calabria, South of Italy ExperienCheese was inspired by my passion for exceptional cheese and a desire to share the authentic taste of Italian style cheese to cheese lovers visiting Bergamo.
