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.
Our love affair with food drives us to promote sustainability, diversity and culture in our communities–starting in the kitchen. Our goal is to share our passion for cooking with you and to inspire our community to combat food waste. Together, we can make a difference.

Each corporate team building activity is designed to nourish both your team’s minds and hearts, as they create something delicious with their team and enrich their understanding of a new culture.
Here are some of the company’s we’ve had the pleasure of working with:
"I organized a dumpling cooking class for my company for Lunar New Year. The chef was based in Shanghai, which was awesome! Silvia was super responsive to all of my questions and helped provide a great experience for my team. She was also on the Zoom and helped facilitate a fun class and asked the chef questions while we were cooking. Everyone enjoyed the class and the dumplings turned out super delicious. Definitely recommend this experience!"
