Let Us Bring Italy to You

 Cooking with Culture is the only authentic Italian cooking and culture school in Alabama, founded and owned by true Italians. Come, eat, drink, have fun the Italian  way!

We offer classes in Italian cooking & culture, language and cocktails as well as wine dinners, private cooking parties, murder mystery dinners and more.

Our approach is very unique as we not only teach you how to cook delicious, healthy and authentic Italian meals but you will also learn the culture and history behind each dish.

We bring you the real Italian convivial spirit and atmosphere without the airfare!

Our passion lies in educating people to eat and live according to the most wholesome and authentic Italian traditions. We mix  Italian cooking, culture, history, lifestyle and language to gift you moments filled with food, fun, laughter, knowledge and happy memories!
