Ciao! I am Italian and I love everything about food. I cook with all my senses. I love texture, color, smell and taste. They are all very important to me in a dish and everything needs to be balanced. I let nature guide me when choosing the freshest ingredients. I try to cook with local seasonal ingredients whenever possible.

In my classes you can learn how to make simple Italian family styles dinners for those evenings that you do not have a lot of time to cook or you can learn how to make a more elegant and sophisticated meal for a special occasion. I can teach you how to make easy healthy children's meals and amazing birthday cakes that are still healthy. I can also offer recommendation on how to stock your pantry efficiently for the weekly meals and how to choose the freshest ingredients when shopping.

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before
spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

Awesome teacher. Very personable. This was my first lesson and I'm looking forward to more. She was able to help me decide where to focus first and plan my lessons to my best advantage.

Lorna was great baking with my 12 year old grandson. He was awaiting hip surgery so the class was a great distraction for him and the end product a beautiful chocolate cake to take home was a fun reward.
Lorna was very well prepared, had all the ingredients and tools laid out, let my grandson do much of the work measuring, mixing etc and even had baked a similar cake the night before so there would be a cool cake to frost and decorate.
His review: it was great.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

I have been cooking professionally for 5 years. Focusing on Mexican Cuisine and wondering with cuisines from all over the world.
I have recently graduated from The Culinary Institute of America after deciding to take a step further in to the culinary world. There, I was able to learn the fundamentals of French, Asian, Mediterranean, Latin and Italian cuisines.
I will help you learn the basic skills required to understand any cuisine. From knife skills, balancing of flavors, textures to basic cooking techniques.
Lessons are catered to the needs/goals of every individual. I will help you get to cooking the best dinners in no time.
Send me a message and questions are encouraged!

About Lian
I am a food lover, always searching for great things to taste even when not working. I enjoy learning about new ingredients; how to eat them, how to cook them and the history behind them.

Over the y
ears I have realized how food can tell so much about a place and its people which is why I decided to pursue a career in the food industry. I can give you tips and tricks which will help you realize cooking is not too hard as long as you have the passion and determination to make beautifully tasting dishes.
My experience is solid with Mexican cuisine especially tacos. In my hometown Chicago, I have been working with a restaurant concept of new and exciting tacos. We use the humble tortilla as a vessel to transport some of the most delicious fillings from all over the world, while leaving the traditional staples of Mexican Cuisine shine on the menu.

I can organize to fulfill the needs of each individual student. The food world is very large, but depending on the interest of the student we can head on a path and part from there.

My curriculum will be based on the basics and according to experience/ability of each:
Safety
Knife handling/Skills
Cooking Techniques

I can't wait to show you a taste of what it's like to be chef! I have plenty of stories about kitchen life and my travels. The most important thing to remember is to have fun, enjoy the moment and never stop learning, because everyday has something new to offer!
