Why Choose The Culinary Institute of Bologna For Foodies?


- Eat What You Create
At CIBO we believe that cooking in the mountains should be relaxing, enjoyable and fun. You eat what you create and every meal is accompanied by our fabulous local wines. To us, a meal without wine is breakfast!

- Complete Italian Cooking Experience
For a complete experience we start the day with a trip to the local markets to choose our menu for the day.  We then will proceed to the chef's mountain retreat where you will prepare lunch and dinner in his kitchen. Or perhaps you may end up cooking over the fireplace in his dining room or a 200 year old stone oven.

- Enhance Your Italian Culinary Knowledge
You can come for a few days or for a week and add a little touring to your trip.  In a week we would have time to meet with local food purveyors, cheesemongers and winemakers. There are also rich cultural and natural site to visit.  Take a bike ride or hike in the woods and picnic near a waterfall.
