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 as well as wine tastings and cocktails parties.

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!
