Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Homemade fresh pasta
  • Tiramisù

We will start with the magic of fresh pasta making. You will learn how to mix flour with eggs to create the perfect dough. With our hands in the dough, we will knead, roll out and shape two types of pasta: classic egg pasta and a squid ink variant for a touch of elegance. Between stories of Italian tradition and cooking secrets, we will transform ingredients into authentic culinary masterpieces. After the pasta challenge, we will dive into the world of tiramisu. Aromatic coffee, soggy ladyfingers and delicate mascarpone will combine to create a dessert that will captivate your senses. I will reveal tricks and tips for making the perfect tiramisu, from organizing the cookies to the ideal consistency of the cream.

Being welcomed into the home of Paola, Maximus and their friend Roberta together with Tobia their little dog was heartwarming. The overall experience of making two types of pasta and tiramisu was amazing. We as a family had an extremely enjoyable time and were amazed with the results we achieved. The hospitality was superb and we enjoyed chatting in a mix of Italian, English and translator. Would thoroughly recommend this experience.

We had the most amazing cooking class with Paola. She welcomed us into her home with open arms. The table set with rolling pin, flour, salt, olive oil, eggs and boards to roll out the dough. She gently walked us through each step of the pasta making process. We made ravioli, pappardelle and tiramisu. In addition, she prepared several appetizers of homemade cheese and sausage for us the enjoy. She made us feel right at home. We highly recommend enjoying this class.

Maria Paola d suo marito sono stati veramente accoglienti. Come incontrare degli amici per due chiacchiere ed assaggi. Ci hanno accompagnato per Viareggio a gustare prodotti tipici locali. Siamo partiti con la Cecina, semplice ma dal sapore ottimo per poi finire in un localino ai bordi del parco dove ci hanno portato due taglieri di salumi, formaggi ed un’infinità di assaggi per una degustazione di qualità e quantità. Il tutto accompagnato da panzerotti, polenta fritta e vino rosso. Per ultimo un salto una gelateria dall’altra parte del parco per un ottimo gelato. La degustazione e la loro compagnia e’ una esperienza da consigliare. Grazie di cuore

This went beyond our expectations! Maria Paola was fantastic…. Food delicious, beautifully set table in her lovely home. She taught us how to make ravioli after our trip to the local market. Maria Paola, her husband and friend went above and beyond with helping us locate family in Viareggio. We are forever grateful.

We had an amazing time at Paola’s. The cooking was great, very well organized and we learnt a lot about Tuscan food, lifestyle and culture while getting to know the lovely Paola, Massimo and their friend Roberta. We cooked together, chatted and then we had a wonderful dinner together. It was great fun, we got super recipes and made new friends. We can highly recommend this experience for everyone.

Maria Paola
Cesarina from 2018Location: Viareggio    Languages: Italian and English
What is there to do, see, taste and experience in Viareggio, far from the most famous streets where Carnival is celebrated?  Viareggio is one of the most charming seaside resorts in Italy. It is a city with an Art Nouveau soul that can be felt within its historic buildings and elegant cafés, all reminiscent of Italy in the 1920s. The city is a beautiful 'sandy corner' of Italy, with rows of elegant beach umbrellas, mountains in the background and white quarries seen in the distance.  In the center of the city, in a type of home referred to as "viareggina" (the typical seaside home of Viareggio), we meet Maria Paola. Our Cesarina inherited her passion for cooking and preparing fresh pasta from her father, who himself had learned to cook from the farmers of the Lucca countryside. As a young girl, she would close herself up in the kitchen to create ‘her dishes,’ and today her greatest satisfaction comes from hosting guests, who are at their ease in the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.  Her culinary skills encompass meat and fish dishes, as well as enogastronomy recipes dating back to ancient Versilian tradition.
