If you admire the skills displayed by top chefs, why not learn directly from them? Classes taught by some of Cleveland’s best chef-instructors allow you to choose from several teaching formats including demonstration, hands-on, and multi-day learning options. Enjoy a flavorful experience as you learn the secrets of the latest cooking trends or how to master traditional culinary skills. Attend a class with family or friends or give the gift of good taste with a gift certificate from the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking. Check back often to discover our newest classes, treat your taste buds, and master your abilities in the kitchen.


Gourmet tastes and grand accommodations are just the beginning of our private events.

You can also celebrate your special occasion with extraordinary food in a welcoming environment by reserving our Sapore restaurant all to yourself.

Gift certificates are also available, for the kitchen genius or food enthusiast in your inner circle.


Join Loretta Paganini herself on an insider tour of one of the most culinarily sophisticated countries in the world. Together with a small group, you’ll discover hidden restaurants and unique cultural experiences you'd never find as a tourist alone. Meet masterful chefs, explore local tastes, and see Italy as it's seen through Italian eyes.


Turn your home cooking into a restaurant-quality experience with our expert-written recipes. Push the boundaries of your own culinary limitations and make your own versions of creations from our region's greatest chefs. From appetizers to desserts, you'll find the perfect dish to complement your cooking style and bring new tastes and experiences to your kitchen.
