La Cucina Caldesi Cookery School

The Italian Cookery School in London, Gerrard’s Cross and Bray, Berkshire.

Learn to cook like a true Italian with expert teachers at our cookery school in our ‘little corner of Italy in Marylebone’ or at our schools at Caldesi in Campagna in Bray, Caldesi’s Kitchen in Gerrard’s Cross or via Zoom.

More than 20 years ago, Giancarlo and Katie taught friends and guests how to make fresh pasta in their restaurant on a Sunday.  It proved so popular they established La Cucina Caldesi, a purpose-built cookery school open 7 days a week and have since been running their 3 restaurants, the cookery schools and have written over 15 cookbooks.

We now run regional Italian cookery courses ranging from fresh pasta making through to mastering the art of creating the perfect risotto, from cooking with fish and shellfish to making the most of the Italian vegetable garden and beyond.  We also offer a range of courses focussing on low-carb and gluten free eating and from time to time run courses exploring other international cuisines.

Select from our day or evening cookery classes or arrange your own bespoke individual or group event.  Our venue is also available for private dining or dry hire.

You can also buy someone a gift voucher for one of our courses or a meal in one of our restaurants or take a look at our shop for inspirational presents and signed cookery books for the foodie in your life.

Bookings can now be made online, by calling us on 0207 487 0758 or by emailing us at
