Your experience

    I will welcome you into my home, inside one of the oldest nurseries in Pistoia. In my kitchen I will teach you how to make egg pasta according to my family's tradition. You will be able to try kneading and rolling out the sheets with a rolling pin or with the small manual Imperia machine.

    You will be able to choose from classic formats such as tagliatelle or farfalline or make garganelli (a type of macaroni from the Romagna tradition) or inganna-prit (a kind of mock cappelletti). You will be able to choose at the time whether to enjoy the pasta immediately topped with a Tuscan mascarpone and sausage sauce or take it home with you. The lesson and eventual consumption will be enhanced by a good local Tuscan red wine, printed recipes and numerous tips and anecdotes.

    If we could give her 10 stars we would! She was gracious fun and amazing to work with. We never felt rushed with our class and made tiramisu and 2 types of pasta. We sat to lunch and had an excellent conversation Would recommend making time for this class!

    Thank you for the best meal we had in Tuscany! So much more than a meal. We learned to make our own pasta from the family traditions. Incredible meats, wine, and cheeses and an evening full of personal conversations. We learned so much and felt like members of the family. Thanks for sharing the old ways of cooking and opening your home to us. It was our most memorable experience!

    Great night, Luisa made very good food for us and had so much knowledge about the area. Great experience!

    It was a delightful afternoon with Luisa learning know to make different egg pasta shapes and chocolate mousse. She was entertaining and fun to talk to. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow. I love that the ingredients used are simple items one would have on hand in every kitchen, egg, flour, butter, cheese, spinach, EVOO and easily substitutable with other stuff. And the ratios are easy to remember as well. Highly recommend as an activity to do especially when you are tired of churches and museums. And home made pasta and chocolate mousse are definitely something I can whip up again and again at home. Highly recommend! It was lovely to sit and enjoy what we made over a glass of wine at the end of it!

    Ottimo. Luisa è bravissima a fare e insegnare. Siamo stati benissimo, ci siamo divertiti e abbiamo imparato a fare diversi tipi di pasta all'uovo casereccia. Abbiamo poi mangiato la pasta che abbiamo fatto. Consiglio l'esperienza a tutti. Grazie mille.

    "I was born in Romagna, but now after more than 35 years in Pistoia my home is Tuscany. In the green, but a few kilometers from the station and the Piazza del Duomo. I have a creative and curious soul and in the kitchen, through the dishes of the Romagna and Tuscan tradition, I express at best my spirit of welcome. I love to make homemade pasta, bake bread, cook the classic desserts of the tradition."
