Cooking Experience

Chef Mandi Gianadda

With my ancestral roots in Italy, and having lived here with my family for the last 10 years, I am excited to share my passion and experience in Italian Cooking. I create balanced menus around fresh, seasonal ingredients and prepare traditional homemade meals specifically for you.

I am qualified in food service management; I have 20 years of international experience as a chef and manager in high-end event catering and as a private chef and villa manager here on Lake Como.

I am offering cooking experiences, family style dining and drop off ready prepared meals. I can also custom make cooking experiences and events to suit your individual needs.

Cooking Experiences: come and spend the morning with me preparing some of your favorite and some less well-known Italian dishes. This is a hands-on informal experience where afterwards we will sit down and enjoy our freshly prepared meal admiring the beautiful view offered here at Villa Matilda.

Poolside Dinner: on a beautiful evening let me prepare a casual family style dinner for you. You can relax and enjoy knowing that everything has been taken care of.

Drop Off Dinner: after a long day tiring exploring, I will prepare something for you to easily heat up at your convenience. It will be ready for you whatever time you arrive back.
