Your experience
  • Passatelli in broth or fish sauce
  • Tagliatelle
  • Spinach and ricotta cappellacci

Course and menu of three fresh pasta dishes: passatelli pesaresi, cappellacci with spinach and ricotta, and tagliatelle. I will offer a welcome drink to get to know each other and welcome you to my country home in the hills overlooking centuries-old olive trees. We will prepare typical passatelli pesaresi with broth or fish sauce; to make the passatelli we will use my great-grandmother's "fer," an ancient tool that still bears the marks of all her preparations. We will then put our hands to pasta to prepare the exquisite cappellacci filled with ricotta, spinach and Parmesan cheese dressed with a fresh tomato sauce.

We will finish with the beloved tagliatelle topped with a ragout of seasonal vegetables. For the three recipes we will use eggs from my happy hens!

I surpised my partner with the cooking class. Silvana is very nice and explains how to make delicious courses. I would recommend the cooking class to my family and friends!

My Mother and I booked this experience with not a second thought as it sounded like an amazing experience. What we experienced with Silvana and her husband, Stefano, was even more incredible than what we could've imagined. The food was sublime. Making passatelli from scratch, enjoying countless appetizers, and all while enjoying Silvana and Stefano's warm hospitality made it an experience we won't soon forget. Not to mention we enjoyed our lunch in their backyard under the olive trees while looking out at the mountains; simply stunning. If you're coming to Pesaro or the surrounding regions, you MUST make time to go to Silvana's!!

My wife and I were guests of an an exceptional Italian lady and her husband. We received a warm and hearty welcome into a beautiful home with a large garden. Silvana’s husband cultivates olives and - as an extra - I received a short introduction into the art of growing olives to produce a first rate olive oil. After the antipasti on the terrace (piade and parmigiano accompanied by a very suitable prosecco) we were asked inside to enjoy the first course in the preparation of which we were able to lend a hand: passatelli , a tipical dish of Le Marche offered with a very tasty salad. The main course, parts of squid roasted with potatoes and more “frutti di mare” was as excellent as the “primo”. This was followed up by an incredibly tasty “dolce” with fresh strawberries and vanilla, a creation of Silvana herself. Actually I should not have spent so much time on the menu, although it was perfectly wonderful, because the main experience of the evening was the openness, friendliness and patience (with my Italian) of our hosts! Hardly ever have I met with such friendly, interesting - and interested - people. I’m afraid we stayed much too long because time really flew that night. Altogether: I really love Italy and the Italian cuisine. So this evening was, for me and my wife, one of the most pleasurable experiences we ever made. The Cesarine idea is excellent. It allows the person interested in Italian culture a lively and intensive contact with an important aspect of this culture: the cuisine - but most of all the friendliness of the people who make this culture come alive, Silvana and Stefano, two excellent ambassadors of the Italian culture.

Wow, what a fantastic evening spent with Silvana and her husband Stefano. Her food is fresh, flavourful, and impassioned, and together we shared a homemade meal that was simply a slice of heaven. Their hospitality is second to none and I look forward to the day that I can return.

Che esperienza meravigliosa! Da abruzzese fuori sede amo conoscere la cultura gastronomica del territorio e grazie a Silvana ho scoperto tutti i segreti di un'ottima piadina sfogliata. Silvana è una Cesarina fantastica e consiglio assolutamente un'esperienza culinaria con lei! grazie per l'accoglienza, le chiacchiere e l'ottimo cibo e vino. Alla prossima cooking class! 😊

Cesarina from 2020Location: Pesaro    Languages: Italian and English
"I like everything that belongs to nature, and in my free time, I dedicate myself to the cultivation of minor fruits, olives, and vegetables, in full respect of the rhythms of the earth, and with a totally natural approach. I strongly believe that a large part of our well-being is related to the quality of the food we eat. My house in the hills is located 15 minutes from Pesaro, in a relaxing place where reconnection with the earth comes to life thanks to the rustle of the leaves of the 500 olive trees that surround it. My table is consequently characterized by simple foods, mainly made with the catch of the day from the Adriatic Sea, and accompanied by what our land offers us."
