Young Italian chef with a big passion for fresh pasta and risotto! As many Italians I started cooking with my mom. But then I continued my studies in a Cooking Academy and after that I also attended the University where I graduated in Food and Wine Sciences. I've worked in various restaurants for almost 2 years and I'm also a WSA Sommelier.

I love to travel all around Italy to learn from local people the culinary tradition of this amazing Country. In all my trips I collected many stories that I'd like to share with you. Join the class and enjoy the art of making Arancini.

I'm also a live experience host, check https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/783659 , with more than 330 reviews with 5 *.

Riccardo’s Arancini Cooking Class was absolutely fantastic. Riccardo was a wonderful chef and host, he really took the time to walk us through each step and took some moments to share personal storytelling. We did this private class with my family for my birthday and we couldn’t have had a better experience! Thank you so much for teaching us to make the most delicious Arancini and we can’t wait to recommend your class to friends. Recommended to anyone who loves to cook, learn and experience something special.

Yum! I haven’t had arancini in a long time so I was excited to learn to make them! Riccardo was knowledgeable and fun! We even got to meet his cat. Overall it was a great class and we ended with plenty of yummy arancini. This was definitely an easy recipe to get all of the ingredients we needed, I didn’t have to order anything online - which made things so easy for me! Thanks again for the fun class Riccardo - and pineapple belongs on pizza!!

This was a terrific experience! We made enough arancini for the entire family - and saved more for later! Riccardo was an excellent teacher and explained everything clearly, with easy-to-follow steps. We also learned about the history of arancini and other ways to make the dish another time. Our arancini were delicious and we plan to add this recipe to our regular rotation. Highly recommend!

What a great experience with Riccardo He was friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. It was a great way to spend the evening in Italy from home, making Arancini Siciliani — the result was delicious and Riccardo is a friendly guy. It was easy to follow up with him. Absolutely recommend! Grazie
