Indulge in the Authentic taste of Italian Cuisine made for you or with you by Roberto. 

Roberto Bagnato is a true Italian, full of passion (particularly for food) and it’s catching. Spend an evening with him and you’ll be thinking of moving to Italy. Born in the beautiful Southern region of Calabria, the toe of Italy and famous for its olives, Roberto is just like the region: true to his roots. He believes in good old fashioned cooking, inspired by his ‘Mamma’ – his best critic! 
 
Roberto loves food but being a qualified chef working behind the scenes in the kitchen was not for him. Inspired after volunteering at a local school, he found his desire to be with the customer, helping them to create and eat the dishes... was far more rewarding! So Cucina a Casa was born. 
 
If you want a night of fun and flour, contact Cucina a Casa and Roberto will be on your doorstep with his apron! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

For special occasions, large events, dinner parties or just a luxury night in 

Roberto set up Cucina a Casa to create authentic and bespoke Italian cuisine at people’s homes for special occasions, dinner parties or just  
a luxury night in. 
 
As your private chef, Roberto will create menus tailored to your personal tastes and cook the meals in your own kitchen.  
A range of menu options is available to suit your needs. A menu plan is created in consultation with you. 
 
 

How it works 

Once you have contacted me, I will provide a menu and a quote based on your brief. When cooking in your home, I will arrive at a pre-arranged time to prepare the food for you. The majority of food is prepared fresh on site so full use of your kitchen will be required. I may bring additional kitchen equipment with me on the day, but I will use your serving plates, dishes, cutlery etc. 
 
Once the food has been served and you and your guests are enjoying the final course, I will say 'arrivederci' and leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening! 
 
Whether you would like help with preparing a dinner party, want to perfect your cooking skills or simply fancy a get together with friends, doing something a little bit different – classically trained chef Roberto is available for private cookery lessons on either a one-to-one or group basis. 
 
 
 
 

The Process 

 
 
 
 
Following your booking, a tailored menu will be agreed to reflect your event/occasion, personal tastes as well as your level of cooking expertise. 
The lesson can be 1-2-1 or for a group and will take place in your own kitchen. Your own equipment is used making it easier for you to recreate the dishes in the future. 
All meals can be prepared ready to eat straight away, later that day or the following day as you choose. 
Once the menu and budget have been finalised, Roberto will purchase the ingredients and bring them along on the agreed date. 

What you will learn 

During the cooking lessons you can learn techniques such as knife skills, cooking tips, making fresh pasta etc. 
Dishes can include Italian specialities such as bruschetta, fresh pasta with traditional sauces, Gnocchi al Ragu',Risotto, Tiramisu'... 
Please note that these are only examples, once you have booked your lesson we can discuss your preferences.
