Classes in Italy

In 2000, Giuliano and his wife, Lael, started their own cooking school – Cooking with Giuliano Hazan at Villa Giona – a Renaissance villa outside Verona. Together with partner Marilisa Allegrini of the famed Allegrini Winery in Valpolicella, the Hazans will lead you on an incomparable culinary excursion. Trips to Italy’s finest – and often hidden – food and wine producers, daily classes preparing traditional Italian meals, and dining at some of Italy’s best-loved restaurants will make your week nothing short of a total immersion in Italian food, wine, and life.

Classes are limited to 12 students, and are held each spring/early summer and fall.
Here’s what some of our students say about Cooking with Giuliano Hazan:

It may sound like a cliché, but it was truly a dream-come-true…. Each morning I awoke with such eager anticipation for the trip that awaited us that day and the culinary adventure planned for that evening. I was NEVER disappointed….”
– Barbara Zawoysky, Clifton Park, New York

“The field trips were all memorable. …even the ‘locals’ don’t have the opportunity to visit the types of places we visited. Very, very special.”
– Leon Perakis, Palo Alto, California

“I feel as if I have a whole new understanding of Italy and its food and wine.”
– Mitzi Klukvin

“The Villa is spectacular; one can imagine checking in and never leaving.”
– Susan Martin, Washington, D.C.
