Shared Experience
Your experience

    Cinema on a plate.

    With this experience, I invite my guests to immerse themselves in the world of cinema and savor iconic dishes from various films. This is not about simple regional recipes, but rather a journey through Italy enriched with touches of Middle Eastern flavors. From "Mid-August Lunch" to "The Ignorant Fairies," to make you feel like the protagonists.

    In the film "Mid-August Lunch," one of the most beloved guests is our cherished pasta, which always knows how to bring everyone together: baked pasta prepared with classic Bolognese ragù and béchamel, all topped with generous amounts of Parmigiano Reggiano.

    The stars of "The Ignorant Fairies" are the white meatballs, enhanced with apple, onion, and spices, to be enjoyed with confit tomatoes or other seasonal vegetables.

    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!

    My mom and I had a wonderful time! Paola was an excellent teacher, very friendly and patient with us first-time pasta makers. We loved getting to know Paola and she gave us some great recommendations for our time in Bologna. The food we made was delicious and she gave us the recipes to make ourselves at home! Such a great experience, I would 100% recommend it to anyone!
