ABOUT IMPASTIAMO

IMPASTIAMO classes make cooking fun, easy and enjoyable–no matter your skill level. 
 
Whether it’s an online or in-person cooking event, our chefs from around the world will WOW you with tips, tricks and techniques so you can share in their culture and enjoy a mouthwatering dish that you made with your own hands. 
 
Founded in the spring of 2020 by Silvia Carluccio, formerly at Live Nation Entertainment, we set out to pair our love of food with our love of music–a consistent theme in all of our cooking class experiences. 
 
Since then, we've hosted over 300 online cooking classes with chefs from Milan, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Costa Rica, Sicily, Toscany, Spain, and India. We've proudly supported over thirty small businesses including restaurants, private chefs and nonprofits in this time, and that number continues to grow.
