My family and I moved from Italy 6 years ago, and I’m 100% Italian. I was born and raised close to Rome in a little town called Sezze Romano which is famous for its artichokes. I learned by watching my grandmothers, organizing parties with my mom, cooking with my mother-in-law. In the kitchen there is always friendship and warmth. I started Bellangela because I wanted to invite others to experience Italy, starting at the table…
Have you ever wanted to experience Italy but didn’t know where to start? Do you enjoy history and culture and really good food? Are you overdue for an adventure, where you don’t have to worry about anything and you can just enjoy life?
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Angela’s hometown of Sezze – it doesn’t get more authentic than this. In the Lazio region, nestled between Roma and Napoli, is Sezze, with 2,400 years of history and rich culinary tradition. Tour the sights, taste the food, learn the culture, make some connections in the small group setting, and experience Italy at its best.
Delight your guests with a very authentic Italian food experience directly in your home: usually a typical Italian meal consists of an appetizer (antipasto) to stimulate the appetite, a first course (il primo) usually based on pasta, rice or soups, a second course (il secondo) based on meat or fish, possibly served together with a side dish based on vegetables (il contorno). The feast is closed with an espresso (il caffe’) accompanied with desserts (il dolce). The final touch usually is liquor, to help with the digestion (l’ammazza-caffe’).
I will design a typical Italian meal for you and I will recommend a genuine combination based on your preferences. I will shop for all necessary food items and ingredients and then prepare and cook the meals for you in your kitchen.
I decided to start teaching Italian cooking to give you the how-to’s and let you find your own way in your kitchen: family recipes, my experiments, and shortcuts that help everyone in the kitchen. My Italian cooking classes are designed for 4 to 6 students: I like to be able to answer questions and offer a real hands-on full class, usually 2-hour long. I’m also available to organize parties with your friends, colleagues and kids, at your place or in my home-kitchen. My goal is to offer an Italian lifestyle experience, so we’ll start with a complimentary cappuccino, and after cooking we will enjoy the food we made around the table, chatting… Italian style!
Students have been so happy about my teaching style and the experience I offer, that I’ve been recognized as Best of 2018 by Lessons.com – thank you, grazie!!
I offer catering with authentic Italian recipes: imagine appetizer-buffets, or 100% Italian-style Lasagne, or home-made pasta with my secret Bellangela Ragu’ sauce, and don’t forget some special desserts, like my family recipe for Tiramisu’ and Sicilian Cannoli, to name a few.
I’ll assist you on designing your special catering needs for your party: prices will vary depending on the combinations.
Angela's food was met with high praise at my dinner party. Everything was so delicious, especially her lasagna, which is AMAZING!!! It made our dinner party so easy and fun for me.
Our clients have been very happy with her private chef services for dinner parties. She would be a great choice for anyone looking for a catered dinner party, a cooking class event with friends or would like weekly meals delivered.
