"I highly recommend booking in for the Italian dinner option. It was so wonderful to check-in in the afternoon and then not have to leave the property until check out; that way we could really appreciate the beautiful rooms, outlook and wonderful hospitality".
Trip Advisor Review
We journeyed to Luino, home to the largest fresh food markets in Europe. This was an exceptional opportunity to immerse ourselves into the region and absorb authentic Italian gastronomy. As our innovative approach to further our limited knowledge, we dined in several restaurants tenaciously seeking outstanding cuisine we could offer at HideAway Haven. With positive results, our education about regional cooking was quickly expanding.
We personally approached the chefs of two restaurants where our meals were particularly outstanding and asked if a cooking class was offered. With personal invitations under the direction of two of the finest chefs in the region, we were given private cooking classes in their kitchens. We learnt about simplicity and quality and the importance of allowing the ingredients to shine through. With Chef Nonna and her interpreter, we together prepared several authentic dishes which now are offered to our guests.
Please ask about our menu and enjoy a home cooked authentic Italian dinner during your stay with us.
