We had so much fun learning to make pasta with Patrizia. She was a great teacher and made the whole experience memorable. We are both excited to put our new pasta making skills to the test!

Patrizia was so accomodating to our intolerances (lactose) by searching high and low for the right products. She welcomed us warmly to her home and was brilliant and so very patient in helping us to learn the art of making and cooking pasta. Also we were able to make Tirimisu to finish off our gastrinomic experience. The use of an Interprter was such an important component of our experience. Thank you Thank you Thank you 😊 🙏

We had the best cooking experience with Patricia. It was the highlight of our visit in Italy. She was a thoughtful teacher and I could tell that she genuinely loved to cook and teach.

We had the most wonderful time cooking with Patrizia and her son! She was so knowledgeable and welcoming! This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, and I cannot wait to make some of the recipes at home!

We had a wonderful time learning to make pasta and tiramisu with Patrizia and Laura as her translator. It was a very fun experience and Patrizia was a very friendly and patient teacher. We learnt lots of great tips and tricks and all the food we learnt to make was delicious! Would thoroughly recommend this experience if you are visiting Siena!

Cesarina from 2019Location: Siena    Languages: Italian, English, Spanish
Siena is a city famous for its art, the delicious food, and because its Palio is the most important in Italy. Many are its faces, and the city is unique. A few steps from Piazza del Campo we meet Patrizia. The family of our Cesarina has been from Siena for generations and her passion for cooking was born in her family. In the kitchen, she loves to use creativity and imagination, but always paying attention to the tradition of flavors and tastes of her land. At her table, guests can enjoy dishes with a strong and unmistakable taste, made with genuine products: legumes, vegetables, meats, extra virgin olive oils, ingredients that give life to the most typical recipes of Siena, admiring the Campanone of the Torre del Mangia.
