Finding the Perfect Italian Cooking Tutor

When it comes to cuisine, it's hard to argue with Italian food. Cooking is taken very seriously in Italy and it shows with the quality of food regularly made and the exceptional health of the people of Italy.

Italian cuisine is delicious and varied. The ingredients commonly used include fruits, vegetables, sausages, pork, cheese, fish, seafood, potatoes, rice, corn as well as some wonderful seasoning and spices.

Also, we'd be doing Italian cuisine a great disservice if we didn't mention just how much "Italian" cuisine differs from region to region. While there are a few dishes that are eaten all over the country, you'll find that the regional variations and specialities are worth classifying as cuisines in their own right.

The Benefits of Studying Italian Cooking

Be it pizza, pasta, tiramisu, minestrone, or gelato, you have to get it right. You'd be surprised at just how much of the "Italian" food in London wouldn't make the grade in the country it purportedly comes from.

If you want to make genuine Italian food, you need to study how to make it. Too much Italian food in the UK is made using shortcuts that most Italians would consider blasphemous. Carbonara should never use cream instead of egg yolks, pasta needs to be cooked with sea salt, and never tell an Italian that you like Hawaiian pizza!

Whether it's in a cookery school or lessons with a private tutor, if you don't study proper Italian cooking, you might find yourself making these faux-pas over and over again.

Cooking can be a rewarding pursuit, too. In addition to helping you make better meals and avoid disasters in the kitchen, learning how to cook Italian food is also a great way to have better control over your food, diet, and budget.

If you learn to make Italian food yourself, you can save a fortune on takeaways and eating out. You'll also guarantee that you aren't getting ripped off with subpar "Italian" food, either. When you make a pasta dish, you'll know exactly what's in it, especially if you've opted to make pasta from scratch, too!

Challenges in Italian Cooking

Italy has such a rich cuisine that chefs of all levels will be able to make something. However, some dishes will take you years to get right. After all, there's a reason Italians take such care when preparing food. It's this care that makes the difference between substandard and exquisite dishes.

The simplicity of some Italian dishes can also be problematic. The worst thing you can do is get complacent when making Italian food. After a few attempts at a certain dish, you have to make sure you don't get lazy. When prepared with care, your homemade pasta might be amazing but the quality can drop if you don't make the same effort every time you prepare it.

Private Italian Cooking Tutorials

If you'd like to learn how to cook real Italian food, you can always attend cooking classes at a cookery school or get private lessons from a tutor. The latter comes with several benefits because, as you've seen, it's care and attention to detail that makes the difference when making Italian food.

In a cooking class, you may just be a face in the crowd. Even if your teacher is an exceptional chef and a good teacher, they may struggle to give you the attention and guidance you require. In a private tutorial, there's just you and your private tutor. Private tutors can focus fully on their students, ensuring that they learn all the necessary skills needed to make wonderful Italian food.

Private tutorials can also take place at your own home. It's all well and good learning how to make Italian food in a cookery school but you may struggle to replicate the dishes from your classes once you get home and remember you don't have all the high-quality equipment present in the school.

By learning to cook in your kitchen, you'll develop good habits and muscle memory. Being in a familiar surrounding will also make you more comfortable and allow you to learn more quickly. No time will be wasted looking for utensils or ingredients as long as your kitchen is tidy and well-organised!

Finding an Italian Cooking Tutor

If you'd like to learn how to cook Italian food from a private tutor, just search on Superprof for one. The website is home to plenty of cooking tutors and many who specialise in different types of Italian cuisine.

To find the right tutor, take the time to check out their profiles, see how much they charge, compare their qualifications and experience, and see if they offer that all-important free first lesson!

With so many of the tutors on the site offering free tutoring for the first hour, you can try out several different tutors before deciding upon who's the right one for you. Discuss why you want to learn to cook Italian food, tell them about your experience with cooking, and chat about the finer details like cost and availability.

After all, if you're learning to cook Italian food for a job, that's a lot different from learning to cook Italian food for friends and family. Similarly, if you're learning to cook Italian food professionally, you'll be dealing with different quantities, portion sizes, and turnaround times.

If for any reason, you can't find a suitable Italian cooking tutor in London, don't forget that you can also enjoy online private Italian cooking tutorials! A tutor from anywhere in the world (preferably Italy), can teach you how to cook via webcam. These tutorials also tend to be cheaper since the tutor won't have to travel to you, they can schedule more sessions each week, and they won't have to provide any ingredients or equipment.

For those on a tight budget, you can also get group tutorials. While these lose the personalised touch that one-on-one tutorials offer, you and some friends or family can always organise this with your tutor and end up paying less per person per hour as you share the cost of the tutoring!

Buon appetito!
