Had a blast cooking with Momi, the head chef and the owner of the restaurant. We had a great time learning and helping out. Even though my daughter and I are horrible at cooking we still enjoyed the experience and had fun doing something we dont usually do. My wife had the most fun and helped cook some of the dishes. She even cooked for the restaurants customers! The view there is picturesque and breathtaking, so it was a great place for photos as well. I highly reccommend this as it is a great experience, wether you are experienced in cooking or not. I really enjoyed it. Renzo was a great tour guide. He answered every question we had in mind and told us a lot of interesting facts with his vast knowledge about Lake Como.

What can I say. We met Enzo our tour guide at Milan's Central Station. Enzo is local to Como and was able to give us a detailed history of the area. From Milan a short train ride to Lake Como where we met our chef and restaurant owner Momi. We then proceeded to the market where Momi picked up his food he was planning to prepare for his restaurant.
The restaurant is located directly on Lake Como in a beautiful setting. Momi put us to work cleaning some squid and we got a real feel what goes on behind the scenes. We were given a chance to help with the pasta making machine. not by hand
We were not too crazy about playing sous chef for a bit but when it was time to eat all I can say is wow.
A short ferry ride back to Como and a train back to Milan and it turned out be a memorable day.
