The Academy Mission

We curate and facilitate masterclasses, courses, and training programs, alongside professional seminars and recreational events, all designed to highlight the world-renowned Italian culinary arts.

We champion the Italian agri-food heritage by offering refinement classes, with a core focus on safeguarding and preserving the authenticity of original recipes and techniques.

Our classes empower pastry chefs, pizza makers, bakers, chefs, cooks, sommeliers, and food service managers, equipping them with a range of Italian recipes and techniques.

Most importantly, they’ll develop a deep understanding of the significance of using top-notch ingredients and learn how to effortlessly incorporate them into their cooking repertoire.
