Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Lasagna radicchio e stracchino
  • Tagliatelle (homemade pasta) with ragù
  • Tiramisu

I await you in the pulsating heart of Bolognese history and culture, in a part of the city center adored by both locals and tourists. The culinary experience I propose begins with a warm welcome: an aperitif to break the ice. Upon your arrival, you will be able to taste a selection of Parmigiano Reggiano accompanied by balsamic vinegar, to get closer to the authentic flavors of our land. During the cooking course, I will teach you the seven golden rules for preparing perfect pasta dough. Together we will learn how to create delicious lasagna with radicchio and stracchino, giving a creamy and light variant to the traditional baked lasagna recipe. Certainly, there will be tagliatelle, another pillar of our cuisine. And to finish another classic: tiramisu!

It was the perfect day with Oriana. Learned a great deal and she was a delight!

I had a wonderful time with Oriana in her beautiful home. I learned a lot during the class but also had a really good time, chatting and eating the delicious food. Thank you for the warm welcome!

My husband and I greatly enjoyed meeting Oriana and her lovely daughter. Her daughter took us on a tour of Bologna that focused on the markets and a few landmarks (Fountain of Neptune) and famous central square. We then met in Oriana's lovely apartment to prepare Tortellini and Tiramisu. She was helpful with instructions, warm and engaging and the food we made was delicious!! There was a special treat where we tasted Parmesan that was 100 months old. Yum!!! We are our delicious lunch on her balcony - it was an absolutely delightful time with Oriana and her daughter. We highly recommend this experience!

Nice host, beautiful place with amazing views from the terrace. We spent a good evening cooking, talking, laughing and eating.

Oriana was a lovely, hilarious and generous host. Her rooftop terrace was amazing with great views. The wine was flowing, she was a great teacher with fantastic stories. We made 2 types of pasta and tiramisu which we ate together at the end. Me and my friend were in a group of 4 with two other girls from the US. This was one of the best things we did on our trip in Italy. Would highly recommend.

Cesarina from 2018Location: Bologna    Languages: Italian and English
Oriana, our Cesarina, lives within walking distance of one of the most historically rich and picturesque places in Bologna, the Basilica di Santo Stefano.  Here, in one of the most beloved areas of the historic town, by both Bolognese and tourists, Oriana introduces us to her family: Salvatore, her husband, and their four children that they love to pamper by cooking them healthy meals, while passing on the family recipes. Oriana is originally from Naples, but living in Bologna, she has learned how to make sfoglia, the typical local pasta, and ragù alla Bolognese. She delights in choosing the best cuts of meat to prepare her excellent bollito, or boiled meat, and for the smallest of her daughters, a lover of tortellini, she cooks this local pasta strictly in meat broth.
