Absolutely! Usually, there are always several food lovers among the diners who take the opportunity to share some time with the chef, learn some tricks in the kitchen and the step-by-step of each of the dishes on the menu. For those diners who really want to get hands on, they can of course join the chef and cook!
Drinks are not included by default. However, you can bring your own or purchase drinks from our mini-bar at Villa Talia.
