Casa Carboni is an Italian Cooking School and Enoteca in Angaston, 1 hr.
15 minutes drive from Adelaide
in South Australia’s Barossa Valley.
Casa Carboni was established by Fiona and Matteo Carboni in 2012 after
moving to Australia from Parma, northern Italy late 2011. The Carbonis
were destined for Melbourne however a dear friend managed to lure them
to the Barossa for a visit insisting that they would love the local
produce and lifestyle of this fertile land. “Casa Carboni is an
extension of our house (‘casa’ pronounced kaza means house/home in
Italian) where we welcome friends, family and visitors to enjoy a true
Italian experience made of food, wine and being together or ‘stare
insieme’. We want to create an environment where we exchange
information, experiences and culture and feed each others passions”.
“Our dream has always been to start a business around food and wine, and
when we discovered Angaston, with it’s weekly Barossa Farmers Market,
beautiful farm gate produce and an incredible group of like minded
people passionate about sustainable farming and ‘buy local’, we
instantly thought we could create something here and build a future for
our babies, Sofia and Filippo’. “After all the wonderful places in
Europe we have visited we never imagined we would find what we were
looking for in Angaston in South Australia”. The aim of the cooking
school is to offer an Italian experience at 360 degrees. Recipes
inspired by Matteo’s homeland and his dear Nonna Pia, brought to life by
the extraordinary farm gate produce available here in the Barossa.
