CIBO was formerly located in Bologna as the premier cooking school in the gastronomic capital of Italy. Chef Stefano and his instructors would hold classes for students from all over the world in a professional kitchen.
Now he has adapted the program to create a unique culinary experience for private parties. Away from the hustle and bustle of a typical tourist environment, Chef Stefano enjoys the ability to both entertain and teach his guests from his private chalet.
Stefano's mountain retreat dates back to the 19th century when it was part of a monastery. In a small village near Verghereto, the kitchen still has the stone oven that was once used by the nuns to bake bread for the local population. It has 4 bedrooms and the Tiber River's humble beginnings border the property as a brook. One of the two fireplaces is still used for cooking. You'll have the whole house to yourself.
