Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Tagliatelle
  • Fried crescentine
  • Tiramisù with coffee and cocoa

Our lesson will begin with the preparation of the dough for the crescentine and tagliatelle. While the dough is resting, we'll dedicate ourselves to preparing the dessert. Following this, we'll roll out the dough for the crescentine and the egg pasta for the tagliatelle, which we'll then proceed to cut. The crescentine will be fried on the spot and served as an appetizer, accompanied by cured meats and cheeses. Depending on the chosen menu, traditional or vegetarian, the tagliatelle will be dressed with a delicious ragù or a vegetable sauce, both previously prepared by me.

I look forward to seeing you!

Highly recommend, couldn’t ask for a better host to teach us traditional pasta making. Paola is amazing. The result of our pasta and tiramisu was delicious. It was our first time ever doing something like this and the outcome surprised us.

My husband and I went to get pasta making class….. Paola was incredible! Her house and kitchen were very clean and beautifully decorated. As a host, Paola was classy, welcoming and treated us like royalty. She was a kind, patient and funny instructor. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a blast and if we could, we would give her 20+ stars. I wish I can take her home (USA) with me because she is fun and her food is marvelous.

My family and I had a wonderful experience with Paola during our cooking class. She made us very welcome, explained very well about the cuisine of Bologna and what we were about to make. Not only that, she was amusing and interesting and made everyone laugh and be involved.Paola’s house was also very much of an Emilia Romagna’s style and we loved looking at her kitchen, dining room and garden outside. She made us feel like we were old friends of hers. Memorable experience

What a fabulous morning spent with Paola, learning how to make tortelloni, tagliatelle and tiramisu. Paola is a wonderful teacher and very warm and welcoming. It was a fantastic hands on experience to learn how to make these dishes, and to then to sit down and enjoy them with Paola's warm hospitality, and good company from the other participants. A highlight from our visit to Bologna!
