Introduction: Adele is now offering online and in person cooking lessons! New service for Thumbtack, grab her as you can! All the best Italian and French dishes, specialties and unique recipes with the secrets of her late Mom, Giselda-Gissy. THE ITALIAN EXPERIENCE An immersive experience in cooking and speaking Italian The Italian Experience was born out of the desire of its founder, Adele Binelli, to pay tribute to the wonderful cooking skills of her late mother, Giselda-Gissy. Adele, a language teacher with a PhD in Linguistics, is passionate about her Italian roots, and it was through her desire to share that passion with others that The Italian Experience was created. The Italian Experience – Where Italy is brought to YOU!! During your Italian Experience, you will be immersed in both the incredible recipes of Gissy, and the beginnings of the Italian language, with Adele as your highly experienced teacher and guide. During each event, you will receive a full Italian lesson, beginning with the vocabulary of the recipes, along with the basics of Italian grammar. At the same time, you will be cooking the time-honored Italian masterpieces from Gissy’s recipe box. The Italian Experience is a truly unique and unforgettable event! Bring your apron, a notebook and a pen, and let Italy come to you! As we set the stage for cooking, we’ll gather around a big table, sip some fine Italian wine, and share in preparing the ingredients for the evening’s feast. As you chop and mix, Adele will lead you in your first Italian lesson until, before you know it, you’ll be able to read and understand the entire recipe written in Italian! As you cook, Adele will share secrets to the best Italian dishes, as well as unique family recipes and appropriate wine pairings. Once the food is ready, it will be time to sit down together and share in the warmth of the traditional Italian table. Part of the fun is the chance to eat, drink, share thoughts, laugh, and truly enjoy. At the end of the evening , you will come away with a new sense of appreciation for Italian language, culture and dining. But you’ll also leave having made new friends, and with handwritten recipes from Momma Gissy’s own recipe box. We Bring Italy to You!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Adele&Nicola arrive to your place with all products, ingredients, mixers and wine for the planned dish. You need to provide pots and pans with kitchen utensils only. And have a notebook for the Italian lesson! We start relaxing with an exquisite aperitivo by Nicola, as Adele sets the stage for cooking. You learn the first Italian words and expressions while the ingredients are being prepared. And then we start! You are part of this wonderful experience, cooking risotto, gnocchi, tagliatelle… the list is endless - you will have chosen the dish of the day beforehand. AND, at the same time, you write on your notebook what Adele&Nicola are writing on their blackboard explaining the basics of the Italian language! Isn’t this wonderful. Adele&Nicola will leave you the original, unique recipe written in Italian with its English translation. Of course, you will also have tons of Italian vocabulary and phrases relating to Italian food and cooking!
