We had so much fun with Barbara and Paola. Welcoming, friendly, and able to adapt and accomodate my temporarily one-handed husband (due to a broken arm). Very excited to have learned to form tortelloni. Loved the language exchange, getting to practice my little bit of Italian and to help with phrases in English. From the welcoming drinks on the balcony to the after lunch coffee, it was a relaxed time and a pleasure to get to know two lovely Italians. Mille grazie! And you are welcome at our place to Oregon to cook Pacific Northwest food anytime

We had a very nice evening with Barbara and Paola. We made fresh tagliatelle the authentic way and meatballs with mortadelle, ricotta and pistachio. We also made the best tiramisu (which I normally don't like, but they convinced me.) I can only recommend barbara and paola! They are so sweet and hospitable. They made my holiday complete. When I come back to bologna, I want to meet them again and make new dishes with their spontaneous, friendly hospitality. I would dare to say that I love them. A thousand thanks for the wonderful evening

Barbara e Paola
Cesarina from 2022Location: Bologna    Languages: Italian, Spanish, English

Barbara and Paola welcome us to their home in Bologna.  Barbara, after many years of work in the bank, decided to make the bed and breakfast in her home, an apartment in the fair area of Bologna, realizing a dream. " I love to cook, using seasonal products purchased directly from those who produce them. It's nice to welcome people at home, around the table,  people meet, talk and feed in all senses!". Paola was born in Ferrara, but is Bolognese by adoption. " Of the origins I keep the memories of a child of the summers spent in the garden playing and working the land with her grandfather and the recipes of poor dishes handed down by the women of the family. On Sundays, the dough rolled strictly with a rolling pin...I was enchanted to observe the skill of my mother and grandmother. From them I learned to make cappelletti first and tortellini then, after our "emigration" to Bologna."
