Your experience
  • Mixed antipasto from Trieste
  • Tagliolini (homemade pasta) with fish sauce and vegetables
  • Tiramisu with seasonal fruits

We'll start our culinary journey with a freshly brewed coffee before heading to the local fish market, where we'll see a wide variety of seafood and mollusks. Next, we'll visit the vibrant vegetable market, where seasonal produce of all colors and flavors will be on display, along with local cheese, herbs, and taralli. After a short walk to my home, we'll enjoy a traditional Trieste aperitivo and finger food before starting our cooking class. We'll learn how to make homemade pasta such as tagliatelle, pappardelle, or ravioli, with a traditional sauce and finish with a famous tiramisù. We'll then gather around my beautiful antique table, where you'll be served with exquisite dinnerware, an aperitivo, and a good wine to accompany the delicious food.

Fantastic experience - will definitely make my own pasta and Tiramisu when back in UK. Giovanni was welcoming and we had a wonderful lunch at the end of the experience. Fully recommend

Giovanna was such a good host. We loved our time with her, the way she showed us how to make the pasta, and was patient as we took the time to try it ourselves! It was an experience we will never forget. She was such a gracious host, making sure we had everything we need. The food was delicious, especially the sauces she prepared ahead of time. You will love this experience if you book it!

Thank you so much for the lovely lunch! We learned a lot from you today, especially how to make paste, tagliatelle in concrete, from scratch. It was so delicious! We really enjoyed cooking with you :) All the best, Simona e Luca <3

Cesarina from 2018Location: Trieste    Languages: Italian, English, French
The city of Trieste is well known for its history, its port, the Bora wind, its historical cafes filled with the scent of roasted coffee beans and a gastronomic melting pot that must be discovered and rediscovered...  We can explore and experience classic Mitteleuropean Trieste cuisine at the home of our Cesarina, Giovanna.  Giovanna loves simple traditional cooking made with fresh ingredients and seasonal fruits and vegetables. She seasons her dishes using excellent olive oil, aromatic herbs and spices, with small forays into the kitchens of the world. In Giovanna’s kitchen, you will discover a pantry laden with sauces, preserves, pasta, spirits and sweets, all strictly homemade.
