The Casa Lara Cooking Experience

The tantalising taste of sunripened tomatoes, fresh oregano, parmesan cheese and rich olive oil.

The smell of garlic frying with oregano and rosemary; images of Italy; feelings of well being and contentment; sunshine and undulating hillsides and deep verdant valleys… Welcome to the Casa Lara cooking experience at La Fenice Agriturismo, Rocca di Rofferno, Bologna, Italy.

Emilia-Romagna is Italy’s gastronomic paradise. Emilia extends along the flat land west of Bologna to cities like Parma and Modena. Bologna sits in the centre. Romagna extends east to the Adriatic Sea. Florence is one hour south of Bologna and Venice about 2 ½ hours north by fast train.

Our Cookery School | All About Us

The joy of walking in the Appenine hills; gathering fruits, herbs and many varieties of much sought after mushrooms. This is the true enjoyment of sharing my Italian Food experience in Emilia Romagna – the authentic home of Parmesan cheese, Parma ham and Balsamic vinegar. For me it is a Food Heaven!!
