Let Us Bring Italy to You

Cooking with Culture is the only authentic Italian cooking and culture school in the US. Founded in Birmingham, Alabama, we offer Italian cooking & culture classes as well as private corporate events.

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!
