  • Tiramisù

Bologna, a city famous worldwide for its tradition of fresh egg pasta! In this cooking class, we learn to make two types of pasta and dessert. We start with the preparation of the dough, starting from eggs and flour, then proceed with the art of the rolling pin. Once we have our sheet of pasta, we create different shapes: tagliatelle and tortelloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach. Let's discover together the secrets of each recipe and the curiosities about the tools of the trade. At the end of the course, everyone is seated at the table (in the garden during the good season) for a luncheon or dinner featuring fresh pasta, accompanied by excellent local wine, and it concludes with a classic: tiramisu. It will be a day dedicated to home cooking, tradition, and fun!

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!

Paola was warm and welcoming to us, and explained how authentic Italian pasta and dessert is made. We had great hands-on experiences preparing great food. The created meal was delicious to enjoy. A Cesarine cooking class is highly recommended as part of an Italian holiday, thank you!
