Shared Experience
Your experience
  • Homemade stuffed egg pasta, with ricotta and parmigiano, seasoned with butter and sage
  • Homemade pasta with water and flour seasoned with vegetables form the garden
  • Tiramisù

I will welcome you in my kitchen, in the house inside one of the oldest nurseries in Pistoia, with a homemade welcome drink. I will teach you my family recipes. You will learn how to make cappelletti, a homemade egg pasta filled with ricotta and parmesan that you will taste dressed with butter and sage. Then you will learn how to make strozzapreti, a short homemade pasta made with water and flour that we will dress with vegetables from the garden. We will conclude by making tiramisù, one of the most famous Italian desserts. If the weather is fine, you can spend part of the event in my garden.

What an unforgettable experience! Our food-making lunch with Luisa in Pistoia was truly the highlight of our trip to Italy. From the moment we stepped into Luisa's warm and inviting home, we felt like part of the family. Luisa's passion for Italian cuisine shone through as she guided us through the art of pasta making, sharing fascinating insights into the history and culture of each dish. It was educational and so much fun. Even our 8-year-old daughter had a blast, getting hands-on with the dough and proudly creating her own pasta. Luisa's patience and enthusiasm made everyone feel comfortable and engaged. The food we prepared together was absolutely delicious, and we left with full hearts and full bellies. If you're looking for an authentic, enriching culinary experience in Pistoia, this is it! Highly recommended.

My 12-year old daughter and I had an amazing time with Louisa! It was fun to learn old family recipes in someone's home and why Pistoia is home to amazing plant nurseries and the heart of Tuscan landscape design. She was full of knowledge about Pistoia - check out her book "Pistoia and its Soul: Do you know this Tuscan city?" As my daughter said, "This was the BEST pasta we have had here in Italy!"

Grazie Mille Luisa! We’ve had a great and very authentic experience making pasta with you. Thank you for the warm welcome, the beautiful stories you told us and the delicious pasta (we made ourselves)!

My friend and I had a wonderful expereince with Luisa. She was so kind, and Luisa was a very patient teacher. She made us feel welcome and comfortable, and I feel that I can definately make the pasta we made together once I return home.

"I was born in Romagna, but now after more than 35 years in Pistoia my home is Tuscany. In the green, but a few kilometers from the station and the Piazza del Duomo. I have a creative and curious soul and in the kitchen, through the dishes of the Romagna and Tuscan tradition, I express at best my spirit of welcome. I love to make homemade pasta, bake bread, cook the classic desserts of the tradition."
