Amazing experience! The knowledge shared was amazing and the food was great. Lots of help and expert skills here - this is the best couple of chefs you can find. Cannot recommend enough, we’ve never cooked pasta before but this was the best for introduction to it!
This cooking experience with Patrizia was amazing! Her and her son Luca We’re so welcoming and their home atmosphere and yard were so beautiful and tranquil! The tiramasu, ravioli and pasta turned out great! Patrizia was a great teacher with great tips for making the pasta! We ate outside in her beautiful yard enjoying our meal and local wines! I highly recommend this experience!
They were very accommodating. Loves the class. Both Maria and her assistant were amazing and friendly. Take their class you will not regret it. Amazing food.
Morena speaks English well and was well prepared for the cooking class. When we arrived, there was a 15 minute introduction, and Morena gave us a sheet of paper with the ingredients and measurements for the recipes written down, as well as the steps to preparing the recipe. We soon began the class with the dessert, followed by two different pasta dishes. All of the ingredients used were fresh, nothing canned or frozen, and the sauces were prepared from scratch. Morena had already prepared a station where we would be working, with all of the ingredients ready for us to use. We started cooking at 10am and finished punctually 3 hours later, then we spent the rest of the time enjoying the feast outdoors while having a pleasant conversation with Morena about Italy.
Emanuela was like our Neopolitan angel. We originally had another cooking class booked that was canceled on us last minute. She was willing to take us in on a moment's notice. Emanuela's skills in the kitchen are unmatched. She was patient, informational, and kind (especially with me—a novice!) My husband who is more comfortable making pasta picked up plenty of tricks from her. We really enjoyed getting to know her and Maria, learning about the region and its cuisine, and spending time at her beautiful apartment. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone passing through Napoli.
Claudia and her family provided us one of our most memorable days in Italy. We have visited Italy many times and always considered taking a cooking class, but this is our first time doing so and we couldn't have been any happier. Claudia was truly a great choice to guide us through our pasta/tiramisu making class. Her family being a part of the experience made it even better. While I have a good command of the kitchen and Jacqui is a great baker, we've never attempted to make fresh pasta. Claudia's instruction has changed that because we now have plans to start making pasta from scratch on a regular basis. After guiding us through the making of our dishes, came the best part, the wonderful family meal we shared. As an Italian-American, our time around her dinner table was reminiscent of most family dinners that I grew up enjoying. Her generous antipasti, which included homemade prosciutto and capicola, inventive crostini and generous wine pours, could simply not be beat. On your next trip to Umbria, it will pay you to seek out Claudia for your cooking experience. We feel like we've made friends with her and her family for life.
Barbara was wonderful! This class was definitely a highlight of our trip. Even as experienced home cooks, we learned a lot (both about food and Italian culture). The food was delicious. Barbara was kind, welcoming and professional.
