    I am Monica, a passionate cook who has always loved preparing delicious meals, even for large groups of people.

    To start, we will prepare an appetizer with fried pizza and sage, paired with Prosecco. Then we will move on to fried squash blossoms, vegetables such as zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, and fried polenta with seasonal sauces. We will prepare fresh pasta, bigoli, with 00 flour, accompanied by our homemade sauce. For dessert we will make "Fried Buccellato," a typical local dessert, or Tiramisu upon request. We will pair the dishes with Prosecco or red wine, your choice. We will taste dishes prepared in the garden, season permitting. Join me for an unforgettable dining experience!

    Monica was a delight. She welcomed us into her home and we had a wonderful learning, cooking, and eating experience. She shared her love of food and cooking with us in a friendly, enjoyable way. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    It was truly a pleasure spending the day with Monica and her husband. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our pasta making and enjoyed the foods Monica prepared. She was such a delight! I would highly recommend this activity! The only negative I have was that there was no Market tour, which is how it was advertised with "Get Your Guide", but that was no fault of Monica's. She was simply the best!

    Monica and her husband were exceptional! They were warm welcoming and so wonderful! They asked what we wanted to make and were good at managing expectations due to time. They were so generous and knowledgeable and kind. It was a truly magical experience for my family. The children loved it! Thank you so much for a special memory and evening!!!

    We had a great evening with Monica! We cooked several dishes (prepared among other things different types of pasta) and had great conversations.

    Monica was absolutely incredible! She was patient, a great teacher and full of knowledge on how to cook the Italian way! All 8 of us dearly loved our experience and we all learned so much. This was well worth the money and it was one of our favorite experiences in Italy! We highly, highly recommend this experience.
