My husband and I had a fabulous cooking class with Oriana in Bologna. She is delightful and we so enjoyed learning her pasta making techniques and other dishes that we enjoyed over lunch in her home. A very lovely and memorable day. Didn't feel like a tourist but more like a friend coming over for a visit.

Our cooking class with Marzia and Sisto was a great experience! We learned how to do pasta, sauces and tiramisu but on top of that we had a great moment with our hosts so kind and nice people! We recommend this cooking class a million!

Antonio was a fantastic tour guide and host. Loved his passion about everything and more importantly, he helped us cook fantastic food. overall, a brilliant experience

Great experience in an informal setting, sitting down to eat our creation with the family after the lesson. My wife and I didn’t leave until nearly 9:00.

Very nice Italian cooking class at the home of a lovely Italian family
