    Who said that Bolognese cuisine cannot be vegetarian? In this course we will learn not only the art of hand-rolled pasta, but also some very tasty recipes to satisfy a plant-based diet or simply those who feel like a change every now and then. Pesto lasagna with béchamel sauce, parmesan cheese and pistachio grains will amaze even the most traditional Bolognese palates, a light and fresh version of tagliatelle and finally tortelloni filled with pumpkin or other vegetables depending on the season. All this in our cozy attic while tasting pignoletto and a welcome appetizer.

    Io sono emiliana, fin da bambina ho visto e aiutato mia madre nella preparazione di tagliatelle, tortelloni e lasagne, tradizione che purtroppo non ho portato avanti. Questo corso con Maria Sole ha risvegliato in me la memoria di gesti antichi e la voglia di "sporcarmi" le mani di farina per far si che questa arte non si perda. La versione vegetariana che propone Maria Sole coglie perfettamente il mio sentire e coniuga la tradizione con l'evolversi del gusto moderno. Ospitalità impeccabile ! Maria Sole ha condiviso insegnamenti e "trucchetti" con piacevolezza e competenza. Consiglio vivamente a tutti il suo corso. E vi assicuro che anche chi la sfoglia la sa già fare ci troverà nuovi spunti e nuove idee.

    Absolutely fantastic class with Sole. My son and I had a blast and I finally learned why my pasta dough always ends up too firm! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn some more plant-forward recipes .... they're delicious.

    Our class with Sole was the highlight of our visit to Bologna! Not only did we learn to make fresh pasta tortelloni, lentil ragu tagliatelle and pesto lasagna, but we also had an amazing dinner and had so much fun.

    My daughter and I had a delightful time last night with Cesarine Maria Sole and Rossella. They taught us how to make three delicious dishes with homemade pasta and their hospitality was exceptional. We were able to experience firsthand how genuinely wonderful the Bolognese people are. We highly recommend booking a cooking experience with them!

    Maria and Rossella were wonderful. They showed me how to make tortelloni, meatballs, and tiramisu. Also, paired the food with great wine. Perfect day with perfect hosts.

    Cesarina from 2022Location: Bologna    Languages: Italian and English
    "With a grandmother from Bologna and a grandmother from Sicily, I could only have a passion for good cooking since I was a child. After several courses and a food and wine master's degree at the Gambero Rosso school, I traveled abroad working as a cook in various restaurants; when I returned home, I the desire to let even those who don't know it taste our cuisine, explaining its origins and processes.Mamma Rossella and I welcome you to our home where together we try to convey a little of that passion and love for good food to our guests too . Ours is a healthy cuisine, which focuses on the quality of the raw materials, but which does not forget tradition. In addition to the typical Bolognese specialties, we love vegetable cuisine and pastry. Our strength is synergy: our mother, the excellent mistress of home and wine connoisseur, she knows how to welcome guests and pamper them while I take care of the cooking and explain the preparations both in English and in Italian".
