Your unique food experience takes place in Marco’s restaurant, located in a beautiful 150-year-old building that is decorated in the shabby chic style. The dining tables are handmade from old doors on the property. The warm lighting and interesting décor make for great talking points throughout the evening! The restaurant is also very close to Mount Pilatus, a major tourist attraction in Lucerne. Marco feels that travelers don’t often get the opportunity to try local food while in Switzerland, so he is excited to share his cuisine with travelers.

During your two-hour, hands-on cooking class you will learn to make a few Swiss specialties with a trained pastry chef, who also loves to cook.

Join Marco in his professional kitchen, a space designed for teaching, to cook the dishes that you will be eating later. During your two-hour, hands-on cooking class help Marco prepare three dishes from scratch - a seasonal starter, a main and dessert. After your cooking class join Marco at the dining table to relish the dishes you helped prepare.

Learn about authentic Swiss cheese, chocolate and other local produce while enjoying a meal that includes a platter of local meats and cheese, salad, chnöpfli (fresh noodles or dumplings) for a main, and for dessert, Swiss chocolate cake with pink peppercorn.

What a fun experience. We had the restaurant to ourselves with Marco, and it was a fun time. There were 6 of us and everyone participated in the cooking process. Marco made sure everyone was comfortable and had a role to play in making our meal. The meal was delicious and we would recommend to anyone to try it. It's relaxing and enjoyable. Marco joins you for the meal, and the conversation is an added bonus to the experience.

On our last day in Lucerne, we attended a class by Chef Marco. Since we were the only couple, we had a private lesson. He welcomed us with an appetivo and cheese as we chatted about the menu. The kitchen was spotless and well organized. He explained everything as we set our our mise en place and involved us in every step of the meal prep and cooking. We made chnopfli, ( a type of American macaroni and cheese, with spatzle) salad from his chef garden, and flourless chocolate cake. As we sat down at a table in his quaint dining room, he served us delicious German white wine and our meal. I highly recommend this experience of enhancing your culinary skills and learning about Swiss cuisine and cooking as part of your Switzerland experience if you are in the Lucerne area!

Yes, we learned how to prepare a Swiss dish... but Marco does much more. We had a wonderful evening from beginning to end. It’s more like a dinner with friends. I would love to do this again!!

Thema Pfeffer hat uns sehr beeindruckt und wir haben vieles darauf gelernt. Das gemeinsame kochen hat uns sehr viel Spass gemacht in einer entspannten Atmosphäre, die spezielle Vorspeise, Salat, Hauptspeise u Dessert war abwechslungsreich und hat uns sehr geschmeckt. Dann das Esslokal ist der Hammer, das muss man einfach gesehen haben. Man kann sich auch bekochen lassen. . Nur alleine dies ist eine Reise wert.
