Your experience
  • Tasty savory pie
  • Pumpkin Tortelli (homemade pasta)
  • Jam tart

I have selected a menu that represents the Parma tradition and my family's cuisine. To start, a delicious savory pie appetizer, followed by tortelli stuffed with pumpkin or herbs. Finally, we will conclude with my tart, prepared with 'picchelle' plum jam, typical of our area, or with black cherries.

Each dish will be prepared strictly by me. I am waiting for you to share this tasty culinary journey!

We had a wonderful time in the home of Christina and Enzo. Christina is a wonderful chef and teacher and Enzo provided the enthusiasm and walnut liquor. So much fun. The highlight of our trip to Italy. Would do it again in a flash.

Our experience was wonderful! Maria made very different dishes than the usual pasta. We loved the appetizer, meatballs, eggplant, wines and cherry tart. Maria and her husband were very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend this food experience.

What a great afternoon we had with Cristina and Enzo in their amazing kitchen! We loved every moment of their charming hospitality. Cristina let us help with making the pasta. Her kitchen is downright dreamy. I highly recommend this experience and know that it will probably be the highlight of your trip to Italy.

We have been touring through Italy for 2 weeks and seen many gorgeous cathedrals and food tastings but nothing compared to this tour! What an authentic, fun, tasty experience!! We loved our Cesarina so much! She took us to all the local shops to collect the food we were going to cook, every detail of our meal was hand picked from local vendors and we got insider knowledge of the choices that were best to shop at. Then we arrived to her home and were blown away by how beautiful it was with all the authentic Italian decorations and family style kitchen. We made the most incredible meal and really enjoyed getting to know our Cesarina and her husband and their lives as well as her cooking. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone! We would eat at Christina's home every day of the week!! Thank you!

Maria Cristina
Cesarina from 2018Location: Parma    Languages: Italian and English
Parma is a small but enchanting provincial city with a French air and a great culinary tradition. Splendidly framed by Parma’s beautiful historical center, Maria Cristina welcomes us in her enchanting residence.

Here, in this house that gives access to a garden of secret beauty in the back, we have the occasion to meet our Guide who – as she tells us – has always loved to cook, ever since she was a little girl. Her passion for cooking was passed down to her by her mother and her grandmother who, with great mastery, would serve up extraordinary menus of which she holds the secrets today.
