Your host and cooking teacher for the evening is Luciana Sampogna, a graduate from the famous Simili Sisters' school in Bologna, and author of Light of Lucia, the cookbook which will take you through the journey of Italian life, love and food revealing the best of "L'anima Italiana", the Italian soul.

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.
