CIBO - Culinary Institute of Bologna offers unique, hands-on cooking classes taught by English speaking, professional restaurant chefs.
Stefano believes that cooking must be a shared experience. His job is to question and then to listen. He views himself more as a facilitator, imparting knowledge, answering questions, and coming up with a plan of what to prepare for a meal but always starting from the student-cook taste and preference. The goal is for the students to leave with the knowledge that they can return home to wherever they live and duplicate what they made at the school. His classes are about learn cooking skills and having fun.

I spent 5 full days working with staff at CIBO. The morning session was taught by Lucia and the afternoon session was taught by Alex. They are both wonderful instructors. Not only do they focus on local ingredients and preparations, but they also teach you about the culture and history of specific dishes. One of the best parts was that there are no "real" recipes - it's more about availability, taste, and personal preferences. Both instructors really focus on the student as an individual and try to cater the class to their personal wishes. I cannot recommend the school enough.
