This was such a wonderful experience. Paola, Barbera and Maya were excellent hosts. We learnt a lot but most importantly, we had a great time. I highly recommend this to anybody looking for a more authentic and intimate cooking lesson from two lovely Italian’s!

We had a wonderful time with Barbara and Paola. They were lovely, gracious hosts and good instructors. We achieved our objective of learning how to make tortelloni and learned some new tricks to making pasta. We also had a great language exchange in both Italian and English. All around a great experience to have while traveling in Bologna. We highly recommend Barbara and Paola!

Barbara and Paola were amazing and such wonderful hosts! We enjoyed our evening learning to make our own pasta and tiramisu and we can’t wait to try out our new skills at home. Thank you Barbara and Paola for an unforgettable evening, you made our time in Bologna!

Barbara e Paola
Cesarina from 2022Location: Bologna    Languages: Italian, Spanish, English
Barbara and Paola welcome us to their home in Bologna.  Barbara, after many years of work in the bank, decided to make the bed and breakfast in her home, an apartment in the fair area of Bologna, realizing a dream. " I love to cook, using seasonal products purchased directly from those who produce them. It's nice to welcome people at home, around the table,  people meet, talk and feed in all senses!". Paola was born in Ferrara, but is Bolognese by adoption. " Of the origins I keep the memories of a child of the summers spent in the garden playing and working the land with her grandfather and the recipes of poor dishes handed down by the women of the family. On Sundays, the dough rolled strictly with a rolling pin...I was enchanted to observe the skill of my mother and grandmother. From them I learned to make cappelletti first and tortellini then, after our "emigration" to Bologna."
