Your experience
  • Trio of appetizers with seasonal vegetables
  • Tagliatelle and ravioli with seasonal aromas
  • Classic tiramisu, with pistachio or fruit

After the reception, we will turn to the creation of dessert, the classic tiramisu. Afterwards, we will move to the veranda to enjoy a trio of appetizers, accompanied by a glass of prosecco, recounting aspects of our lives. We will then return to the kitchen for our guests to be guided to learn the art of pasta making, particularly tagliatelle and ravioli but also gnocchi or orecchiette. Finally, we will gather at the table to enjoy the dishes we have prepared, enriched by our unique seasonings and flavors, favoring typical and seasonal products. With food, we will try to convey knowledge about the place, its history and local traditions and products to satisfy guests' curiosity.

Our time and experience with Maria was fantastic. We had an absolute blast learning to make ravioli, tagliatelle and tiramisu and just talking about our lives and past experiences. Maria's house and personality were very warm and welcoming and we would love to return in the future.

I enjoyed the class Maria P. taught. She explained things clearly and was will to use google translate to be sure I understood. I would recommend her cooking class to everyone. Plus Desenzano is a beautiful spot.

Our Cesarine experience with Maria was outstanding. She welcomed us into her lovely home and immediately we felt comfortable and relaxed. She taught us how to prepare authentic Italian pasta Tagliatelle and Ravioli, and the classic Tiramisu! She also prepared for us an appetiser of delicious antipasti, all of which was suited to our dietary preferences - we really felt like we had been invited to a friends house for dinner. A truly unique experience we will never forget, I would recommend to anyone who wants a taste of authentic Italian home cooking and warm hospitality! Grazie Mille Maria!

Cesarina from 2023Location: Desenzano del Garda    Languages: Italian and English
I really enjoy working in the kitchen and love learning to prepare new dishes, which, along with traditional recipes, are always well-received at my table. I have Neapolitan origins, so those who come to eat at my place usually prefer that cuisine. However, I take pleasure in cooking any kind of recipe: from appetizers, soups, first and second courses of meat and fish, to desserts. All of this is tied to a light and flavorful cuisine, limiting the use of fats and fried foods.
