Inspired by

Cucina italiana

When you attend a Chianti Cucina Italiana Cooking Class, you’re attending an unforgettable night of excitement, creativity, anticipation, and classic Italian food & wine. During the evening Executive Chef Fabrizio Bazzani recreates three historical Italian dishes inspired by the pages of La Cucina Italiana. Each course is then expertly paired with an Italian wine from Chianti’s award-winning wine list.

First published in 1929, La Cucina Italiana is a magazine for those who are Italian in their hearts and in their kitchens and has become the foremost authority for the Italian living experience. The readers of La Cucina italiana, like guests of Chianti Il Ristorante, revel in everything Italian. They are epicureans who are eager to discover food and wine that ventures off the beaten path. Food is the bridge that connects us to the country, the traditions, and the emotions of the Italian experience.
