    It was an amazing experience. Paola was funny and helpful and a great teacher. I would do her cooking class every week if I could. It was the best meal I had in Bologna. Thank you Paola. 💜🇮🇹

    Paola delivered a super lesson. My daughter and I really enjoyed our time in Paola's home and the cookery lesson. She was very welcoming, informative and a wonderful Cesarine host. I would highly recommend the experience.

    Paola was a gracious host from beginning to end. I got lucky and ended up being a private experience. Learned how to make tagliatelle and tortellini and tiramusu. Learned helpful tricks for rolling the dough and about transparency of it to know when ready. Friendly and useful to beginners and intermediate cooks. I can say hands down I left the experience with the biggest grin of self satisfaction making delicious food.

    What a great experience! Paola was a wonderful hostess and a great teacher! She was very patient with us and accommodating to the different levels of cooking experience. Paola had a great sense of humor and had us all laughing and comfortable very quickly. It was a large group of 10 and she handled that very well. I highly recommend this experience!!
