Most of our wholesome and high-quality ingredients come from local producers who are part of our network. The master class takes place at the very own house of one of our chef and ends with a degustation of your own fresh pasta.

Our cooking classes are a unique experiences. We use healthy raw materials, produced mainly by farmers, breeders and artisans of taste who self-identify with our values. We do not only teach how to cook, but also how to understand the products you use in recipes. The food is more than nutrition: it is culture, history, passion. We tell you all this in an informal and friendly way. And then, of course, we start to knead and to get our hands dirty. You will learn how to prepare fresh pasta. Finally, you will eat the dishes that you have prepared yourself. All this will be accompanied by a local wine.You will be challenged with: • Tagliatelle with turmeric, thyme and poppy seeds, seasoned with oil and lemon • Buckwheat tortelli with peas, feta cheese and mint leaf, seasoned with butter and sage • Ravioli with herbs and local butter and hazelnuts • Tortelloni with potatoes and beets with crispy bacon.Equipment and clothing: we provide everything you need for the class; just wear comfortable clothes that may get dirtyChildren: we organize courses specifically dedicated to children. Children above 10 years, normally, really enjoy adults courses as well.
