Alessandra was a gem! She welcomed my daughter, her boyfriend and I into her home and took the time to teach us how to make native recipes. Learned amazing new techniques and the food was delicious. We were so full after we didn’t eat for another 10 hours. Good food, great memories —- Thank You!!!

This was such a fun class and the food was amazing. Alessandra was so kind to let us into her home and teach us to cook. This is the best way to experience local culture and cannot recommend it enough.

Alessandra C., and this experience was excellent. Alessandra had an appetizer waiting for us with great wine. She was kind and patient when teaching us some new skills and explained the process of making the food while providing some history along the way. Her home was cleaned and all the food was delicious. I can't wait for my next trip to Bologna to cook with her again!

Alessandra made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into her kitchen. She shared with us some history of Bolognese cooking and demonstrated her masterful skills as she taught us how to make some pastas and a dessert. She made it all look so easy. We loved joking around with her as we had wine and socialized with her friends and family. We can't wait to try our newly found cooking skills and the recipes when we go back home.

Alessandra, our Cesarina, loves to share her passion for cooking. A passion that combines her memories of the scent of her grandmother's home, where she spent the afternoons when she was a child. In her beautiful home, Alessandra serves the traditional dishes from the Emilia region, prepared with care and attention in the search for quality staple ingredients. In some recipes you can find a small Apulian influence, as Alessandra has roots in Apulia.
