Principe di Savoia’s Tasteful Lesson Plan

  • Laurie Kahle

For those who wish to do more than just savor Italian food and wines, Milan’s Hotel Principe di Savoia has introduced cooking and wine-pairing classes, available through 2012. Students get a hands-on lesson in the classic Milanese cuisine of executive chef Fabrizio Cadei, followed by dinner at the hotel’s Acanto restaurant, featuring the class menu accompanied by wines selected by sommelier Alessandra Veronesi. The price of 245 euros (about $335) per person also includes a certificate, an apron, a chef’s toque, and a photograph as mementos. Veronesi also hosts wine-pairing classes (55 euros, or about $75), that focus on Italian wines, wine-based cocktails, and sparkling wines. A 15-day advance booking is required.
