An amazing experience to discover local food in Bologna directly in a bolognese cooker ! Alessandra was very kind and she explains a lot of things on food and culture. We hope we will practice as well as she did ! Thank you

We had a wonderful time during our cooking class with Alessandra. Alessandra is really passionate about cooking and was so nice and welcoming with us. It was such a great experience to have with my friends, that we highly recommend!

Una bellissima mattinata con Alessandra, che nel suo appartamento nel centro di Bologna mi ha illustrato tutte le dritte per preparare i tortellini perfetti, che abbiamo naturalmente realizzato partendo da zero, preparando sia il ripieno che l'impasto. Alessandra è una padrona di casa e un'insegnante squisita, che mette subito a proprio agio e con cui è facilissimo trovare immediatamente l'intesa. Oltre ai tortellini (il suo brodo è eccellente), mi ha offerto anche una piadina fatta in casa con crudo e squacquerone ed un paio di calici di Pignoletto. Consigliatissimo per chi vuole imparare l'arte del tortellino e della pasta fresca, qualunque sia il livello di partenza

A fantastic class! Alessandra is a charming and patient teacher, very knowledgeable and interesting. The menu was well chosen and the class well paced, and we came away with skills and recipes we can use at 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.
