What Are the Benefits of Taking a Live Online Cooking Class?

2020 has put serious restrictions on our ability to travel and explore the world. Taking a live, virtual cooking class with Ambra will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of a traditional cooking class from the comfort of your own home.

Because the cooking classes are hosted live over video conference, you can ask Ambra questions, show her how your dish is coming along and even interact with other participants. You can even book your class with friends or coworkers for a much-needed connecting activity or a fun private event.

No matter where you live, joining Ambra’s virtual cooking will allow you to get a taste of Italy and enjoy an exciting virtual social event from the comfort of your home.

Who Is Ambra Torelli?

Born and raised in Italy, Ambra holds an MA and a Phd in Italian Studies; and she taught Italian Literature, Language and Culture at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, with particular emphasis on the cultural aspects of Italian cuisine.

Her platform Little Bites of Beauty sprung from the combination of her studies, her passion for healthy food, and the teachings she absorbed growing up in a family of extremely talented cooks, that instilled in her the love for wholesome, handmade food.

During her cooking classes, Ambra shares her enthusiasm for making everything from scratch using loads of fresh vegetables and whole foods, together with stories and traditions about the Italian culture.


If you get an opportunity to take a cooking class from Ambra, please make sure to take advantage! Ambra is a delight and you learn a ton in a short period of time plus have fun doing it! She has such an amazing insight with herbs and flavors that take food to the next level. Plus, her class was fun and the ingredients were readily available. I hope to take more classes with her in the future.

Kara D., Atlanta, GA

This class is a unique opportunity to cook in a small group with someone from northern Italy. It was amazing to use simple ingredients and herbs I have growing in my backyard, to create delicious flavors. I have many more ideas now! The class was conversational; Ambra answered all questions and gave tips on different recipes and how individuals could modify their dishes for certain diets. It was a fun, casual atmosphere – her family even joined in! Most importantly, her methods were easy to follow and the dishes were absolutely delicious! I’ll be cooking them often for sure.

Maureen L., Boston, MA

It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! The class size is small so the environment felt personal, and the process casual and friendly… More like cooking with your friends than “getting instruction.” It felt like a visit to Italy! And I enjoyed learning how to cook food in a different way and getting another’s perspective.

Stella S., Upstate New York

The class was so much fun! It was great to have insight to others cooking, like a new way to use color in a drawing in different ways than you normally do. I would have never ever thought to put fresh basil on green beans, what a great marriage! Ambra has a great personality and it was so wonderful to meet her and her family!

Nicole C., Cleveland, OH

Cooking with Ambra was very enjoyable. It was as close to casual cooking with her in her kitchen, as you could get without traveling to Italy. The class was simple and FUN; the food was very tasty and I loved seeing how real Ambra is in the kitchen! (I loved watching her dad cutting onions because they make her cry 😉 That is real!)

Tammy L., Holland, MI

I have had a fun time making easy and delicious food! Ambra gives you everything you need to be prepped beforehand and the class just flows smoothly. It’s easy to ask questions and Ambra gets involved with all her students! She is definitely a ray of sunshine in this world today! Plus you have a fantastic meal to enjoy! Everything was wonderful: I’ve never had fennel before and it’s to die for!

Lisa S.D., Jacksonville Beach, FL

I loved the opportunity to take part in the cooking class. I looked forward to it all week and Ambra absolutely did not disappoint. It has been a highlight of my summer. My belly is full and happy.  I look forward to the next one!! And let’s face it, this is as close as we’re going to get to Italy while the world is turned upside down.

Anita F., Canada

Ambra has an incredible knack for turning simple foods into healthy meals that have distinct Italian flavors. That’s important because her dishes remind me of some of the best meals I’ve ever eaten while visiting Italy. Because she knows what it’s like to live + thrive without gluten + dairy, she’s figured out how to recreate or tweak recipes to make them “safe” yet still incredibly delicious. I learned so much from Ambra about simple cooking (I even send clients to her blog) and I know you will too!
