    We had a great day learning about the traditions and cooking with Elena! The home is so welcoming and truly allowed us to relax and have a perfect afternoon. We couldn’t recommend enough!

    Our host was very passionate about cooking and shared lots of information and cooking tips. He was a great host for myself and my two teenaged boys whom he engaged in the process. dinner after on the terrace was amazing.

    We had an outstanding experience with Saverio in Bologna. He carefully taught us how to make pasta and answered many other questions about Italian cooking and culture. He was a gracious host and was very attentive to details. The setting was a beautiful house in the city with a variety of artworks and a rooftop terrace for dining. We will definitely do this again in the future.

    We had a wonderful time cooking with Saverio! He was gracious, informative, funny and a great chef. He welcomed us into his and Elena's beautiful home as if we were old friends. We made three dishes (tortelloni, passatelli and gnocchi). We enjoyed fabulous antipasti, bread and tiramisu (the best ever!) that Saverio prepared for us. Dinner was served on their rooftop terrace with an incredible view of the city at sunset. We highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn more about Bologna, its history and cuisine from a local expert! Grazie di tutto, Saverio!! We made three dishes (tortelloni, passatelli and gnocchi).

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Bologna    Languages: Italian and English
    One perspectives we can have of Bologna is from above, enjoying the view from the city’s towers and monuments, from its hills and terraces of various local places, and from the enchanting terrace in the home of our Cesarina, Elena. From here, we can admire the classic Bolognese rooftops that are tinged to an even more intense red come sunset. Here, we can experience the authentic flavor of Bologna, observing it from above and savoring its delectable cuisine. As we know, Bologna is very famous for its gastronomy. This important notoriety dates back to the Middle Ages, when the city began to welcome students and professors from all over the world to the University. This is how Bolognese cuisine became rich, abundant and very varied, not unlike Elena’s cooking. Elena’s elegant table offers up the classic aromas and flavors of the Bolognese tradition, from passatelli in brodo (fresh egg pasta in a meat broth) to 'polpettone' (meatloaf), from 'crescenta con mortadella' (flat bread with cured ham) to 'torta di risoì (sweet rice and almond cake), all following her mother’s recipes.
