    Risotto with saffron, boasting that distinctive yellow colour and an unmistakable flavour, is the favourite dish of the inhabitants of Milan (and not only!).

To learn how to cook it to perfection and to surprise your guests on your return home, the answer is a team building culinary experience with an expert chef. Participants will be divided into two groups and, following an out-of-town excursion to purchase the rice at an old mill, where they will also have a chance to learn about the various techniques involved, team members, under the experienced eye of the chef, will begin honing their skills in the preparation of this dish which will then be served and submitted to the judgement of the other participants and the chef himself.

The best way to discover the real Milan is to stroll around the city on foot.

In 1944, Pinketts wrote, “Milan by night is awash with a sea of people” and he was right.
