Mama Isa is determined to teach her guests basic cooking skills. She has the ability to teach guests and the ability to effectively demonstrate the science and the art of Italian Cooking.

Mama Isa says: "My duty is to transmit to the next generation everything I have learned and experienced. Teaching a cooking class is a great way to share my culinary expertise, in the spirit of sharing and hospitality! It's important to me that my guests leave my cooking classes feeling satisfied on several different levels: sight, smell, taste.
I strive to wow and impress my guests at each opportunity. One of the greatest feelings for me is to see their expressions when they take a bite of what we have prepared during the cooking class". 

She loves this famous quote: "This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!" - Julia Child. It's so true! She repeats this quote at her cooking classes, of course!!!!
