Update on our cookery classes


It is with a heavy heart, after following the government guidelines in relation to Covid-19, that we have made the decision to cancel all planned courses until the end of September. 


In these exceptional circumstances all students who had booked a place on our own classes will be offered the opportunity to reschedule their course until July 2022. 


We will also do our best to contact you directly to re-book your class. 


If you hold a Mariella Bliss voucher,  we have decided to extend the validity of all the gift vouchers purchased before Christmas 2019 to the end of July  2022.


Please contact us via mail or phone to re-arrange. 


We thank you for your understanding and patience during this unsettling time and look forward to cooking with you in the near future.


Take care and keep safe.

Dear Mariella,  my heartfelt thanks for a simply excellent day. We learnt such a great deal about your lovely country, its people and above all its superb food. You explained everything so thoroughly, but in such a way, that it seemed all easy and fun.

We had a fun filled cookery session with Mariella yesterday. Such a professional and friendly lady. She certainly wasn’t expecting such a loud array of women I’m sure, but she dealt with 8 different personalities extremely well and we made some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted. Can’t recommend Mariella highly enough. If you want to learn to cook authentic Italian with a professional, funny, lovely teacher then this is the course for you
