Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Piadina with pickles, cheeses, and jams
  • Tortelloni
  • Tiramisù

Every dish you'll taste at my home is homemade and full of flavor, suitable for both adults and children.

The appetizers are enhanced with pickled vegetables, prepared personally by me, and homemade jams. These are perfect to enjoy with cheeses, particularly with Parmigiano Reggiano. In this experience, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to cook Romagna-style piadina, a traditional stuffed fresh pasta dish, and tiramisu. I'll welcome you into my kitchen, where I'll teach you the secrets of the Emilia-Romagna culinary tradition.

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!
