Academia Barilla Culinary SchoolPart of the job here at Academia Barilla in Parma is to lead cooking classes, and I am one of the chefs that does a regular rotation teaching our customers, friends and visitors about traditional Italian gourmet food.We can cover pretty much every subject in the Academia Barilla instruction kitchens, and each lesson we teach has traditional Italian food as its base. That means you can learn about how to hand make pasta in the traditional Italian style (or better yet, Parma style!), or learn about Winter stews and their importance to Italian culture, while spending time at our beautiful campus.

If you want to get a little more advanced, we can even lead courses on “Italian Sushi” – maybe not as traditional as pasta, but still using traditional Italian cooking technique in a contemporary way.

We also teach about fine dining and entertaining, proper wine pairings and general wine education, and other classes. Our full Custom Courses catalog for the Academia can be found here.

If you’re interested in taking a course with us here at our Culinary Institute, you should first give our American Academia Barilla office a ring at +1 (866)772-2233. They’ll be able to help you choose the best course for you. We’ll love to have you here at our school.

Artisan producrs of Parmigiano-ReggianoDon’t forget that Academia Barilla also does gastronomic tours of the surrounding region here in Parma. You can visit the places where Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or Prosciutto di Parma ham are made on a daily basis. Learn more about those tours here.

Above all, whenever you choose to come just to visit Academia Barilla you’ll be assured of a good time with great food in one of the best culinary locations in the world!!

Buon appetito, and Felice Anno Nuovo (Happy New Year) from the Academia Barilla blog team!!!
