Participants of this class on Saturdays are invited to join Matteo for a tour of the nearby Barossa Farmers Market at 8am where you will have a chance to meet our wonderful producers and collect the produce for your class. The meeting point is at the information booth inside the market entrance.

You will have time to visit the rest of the market on your own before meeting Matteo back at Casa Carboni for your class at 9am. We offer tea and coffee before the class begins.

In this hands-on cooking class you will prepare an Italian long lunch menu inspired by Matteo's home region of Emilia Romagna using beauiful local produce sourced from the Barossa Farmers Market & the farm gate such as: 

  • Piadina Romagnola served w Barossa Valley Cheese Co cheeses, artisan cured meats & Torzi Matthews local wild olives
  • Fresh Pasta: Hand Made Tagliatelle with Ragù alla Bolognese
  • Potato gnocchi
  • Zuppa Inglese a decadent dessert with layers of sponge cake dipped in Alchermes with classic and chocolate crema pasticcera...

Matteo’s philosophy is to teach recipes that can be easily replicated at home so you can prepare these wonderful dishes for your friends and family. Whether you are a beginner or confident in the kitchen, Matteo keeps calendar class sizes to small intimate groups so he can ensure you get the most out of the class.

After the class you will be seated in the Enoteca and dine on the wonderful dishes you have just prepared with a glass of European wine and Illy coffee.

You don’t need to bring anything just wear comfy clothes and a big appetite! If you would like to invite a friend to join you for the Italian Long Lunch at midday after the Taste of Italy class on Saturdays please advise at the time of booking, the cost is $85 per person and includes the 4 course lunch, a glass of wine and coffee.

Great value. Inspired a 14 year old boy to cook gnocchi that's worth 5 stars. Left feeling full, satisfied, entertained and inspired.

Learned how to make beautiful Italian food in a very simple manner. Enjoyed eating that food in the company of some interesting people. Really enjoyed the class overall.

Matteo and Fiona are great hosts! Loved the venue, the class and atmosphere at the casa. Matteo is organised, very knowledgeable and gets everyone involved. The smaller class size allows everyone to participate and generally just have fun. Me and my new pastamaker hope to make lots of homemade pasta for family and friends for years to come! Big thank you to the Carbonis!
