Cooking Classes for Adults

Learn to Cook Authentic Italian Meals From Scratch That You Will Be Proud to Share With Your Friends and Family!

Davide Cerretini is an Italian chef who was born in Livorno, Italy. He has been in the restaurant scene in the California Bay Area for the last 27 years. The owner of Cacciucco  (the first Livornese cuisine restaurant in the world) and the legendary Botto Bistro, he became widely known when he waged a hilarious and successful war on Yelp, which led to him starring in the movie Billion Dollar Bully and appearing on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Now he's here to teach you Authentic Italian Cooking!
In a world where a Yelper from mom’s basement tells you where to go to eat and a chef with a British accent explains how to cook and eat Italian food, a native Italian chef who grew up in Tuscany sharing family cooking secrets may just be bizarre and hard to process. We get it. Where is the ranch sauce? Why is he yelling at chicken parm? What makes his Nonna think she knows her way around a kitchen?

It’s upsetting, honestly. However, if you can push past the initial confusion we have great faith that anyone with a taste bud will soon be on their healing journey, discovering how simple, delicious and easy it is to eat like the REAL Italians eat (increased hand gesturing may also occur)...

Testimonials

What our customers say about us:

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 enjoy making these recipes again and again--and my family loves to eat them!

Davide’s asparagus was so good, I was eating it out of the pan while cooking the pasta. How can each meal be better than the last????
Wendy H. Richmond
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 pici pasta for lunch tomorrow.
Shawn W. Seattle
Tuscany, where the air is so dewy sweet in the Spring that every meal carves notches in your mind, never to be forgotten... Chef Davide pairs both simple and exotic ingredients in a traditional, intimate way. Pair his food with unapologetic, cutting but endearing wit (see him in the YELP!-centric movie, Billion Dollar Bully) and you have a complete performance.
