Il Cucchiaio di Legno
Part kitchen goods store, part high-end deli, ‘The Wooden Spoon’ organises small evening and weekend cooking classes in Milan. One-day workshops can cover anything from professional slicing techniques to the preparation of meat tartare or baccala. Expertly led seminars, detailing the local history and current production methods for specialities such as salame, truffles and olive oil, are also held on a regular basis. Most classes are in Italian, although you’ll need little language skills to attend the tastings; contact owners Mauro and Barbara for more details.
