International School of Italian Cuisine

Italian Cuisine’s Philosophy

Dedication, passion, determination, internationality, professionalism.
These words distinguish our daily work and have led our School to train chefs from all over the world for over 30 years.

Our Objectives:
> Training young talent that, after our courses, will have the professional preparation necessary to find their place in the restaurant world.
> Sharing a love for cooking with non-professional “cooks”, creating the basic conditions for happily cultivating it in their home kitchen.
> Hosting lovers of Italian cuisine from around the world and taking them on a journey to learn about local culinary culture.

These have always been the goals of Italian Cuisine.
The School has many years of experience in culinary training, with a staff of industry professionals coordinated by Gianluca Pardini, chef and School Director.

Its location in Lucca’s hills, some of the most beautiful in Tuscany, makes Italian Cuisine the ideal place to study. It promises students, aspiring cooks and food tourists a time of relaxation, rest and leisure, in an enchanting and evocative atmosphere.
