For the last 15 years Chef Davide Cerretini has been offering wildly fun and successful cooking classes at his restaurants, Cacciucco and Botto Bistro. Now he is able to connect with you all online and offer hands-on cooking classes virtually so you can join him in creating authentic Tuscan dishes from the comfort of your own kitchen, interacting Live as you all cook dinner at home together.

How Our Classes Work:

We send you the ingredient list and wine pairing suggestions on Sunday. You buy and prep your ingredients.

You join Chef Davide live on Zoom on Thursday evening and cook your dinner along with him.

You eat your amazing, restaurant quality meal  with your family!

Classes start at 5:00pm PST every Thursday Evening!

We  our students!


Cooking with Davide is the high point of our week. The dishes are easy to learn to make and use such simple ingredients, but they're FULL of flavor. I love spending Thursdays cooking along, but I also really enjoy making these recipes again and again--and my family loves to eat them!

I've been taking Davide’s Virtual cooking course for the past 8 months. I’ve learned to make so many incredible meals. Davide walks us through every step of the preparation and teaches us all of the tips and tricks that he learned while cooking in the kitchen with his Nonna in Italy. My whole family looks forward to Thursday nights - it’s the highlight of our week! Thanks to Davide, I’m starting to think like an Italian in the kitchen.

Super delicious! My kids loved the lamb, needed to have cooked more. Already asking when I can make this again. My daughter is ready to try the cold greenbean sandwich for lunch tomorrow.

Our Most Popular Options!

Joining our cook-alongs for a month (or 6 months) not only offers you by far the best value, but it also allows you to fully experience being part of our community, cooking like an Italian and growing your skill-set and comfort over time. We LOVE having our students become part of 'the family'. The bigger the Italian family gets, the louder we are and the more our hands move!

Explore All Our Thursday Evening Live Classes!

If you want to get a taste of what our cook-alongs are like, pick an upcoming class and join us for one night to see what it's all about. After that you may have Tony and Sal knocking on your door to politely suggest you join our other classes. We're sorry about that but it's an offer you can't refuse. 

Pre-Recorded Classes

These were live classes that unfortunately you missed. The good news is that somehow they fell off the back of the truck so you can get them at the Italian black market value while stocks last.

Frequently asked questions

What should I expect from this class?

These classes are designed to give you an up-close and personal experience of cooking with a chef in his kitchen, a behind-the-scenes evening where you join him and his family for dinner prep. They are relaxed, informal and fun. You should expect to be able to follow him easily and produce a delicious meal in real time. Have your ingredients prepped ahead of time for best results!

Do I need any prior cooking experience to do this class?

The less you know, the more you will learn! In any case, it will be a fun, stress free, entertaining, educational experience. (No, you don't need any special culinary skills to participate). 

What happens if I can't make one or more of the Live events?

Not to worry! You will be receiving every class in video format, as well as the recipes for the dishes we cover, so you can catch up whenever you like.

Do you offer any kind of refund?

We are happy to offer a full refund within 24 hours of purchasing, as long as the live class has not happened yet, or the recorded class has not been watched in your account. 

Do I need any special equipment?

We created a menu that can be prepared even in the smallest and most modest kitchen, using basic cooking utensils. 

Can I share the link and invite some friends?

Sorry but no. At the beginning of every class we will be checking the attendees against our guest list and we will only permit one device per guest to access the session. We want this course to be a special and exclusive experience for those who have paid to be present. If you would like to refer someone to our classes we would be happy to enroll you in our affiliate program so you can earn 10% commission on their purchase. Please contact us to set that up! 

How many people will each meal serve?


What happens if I can't find some of the ingredients?

All the dishes we make will consist of easily sourced ingredients, but in case you are not able to get them in time you can always just watch the Live demonstration and then make the dish at a later time when you have everything you need. In addition, you can always ask questions about substitutions on the FB group.
