Gourmet Traveller defined Luciana’s cooking school as ‘teaching the Simili Sisters' recipes as well as following their philosophy of introducing the time-honoured traditions of regional Italian cooking to a new generation’. You will learn that Italian food is not about techniques but carefully balancing ingredients, giving you the opportunity to discover the real flavour of Italian cuisine.
