Your experience

    In my kitchen inside the farmhouse in Pistoia's oldest nursery, with the help of just a few tools and an electric oven, you can learn how to make your own fresh bread at home in just three hours. During the class, I will guide you in the creation of two types of bread: the large loaf with a golden, crispy crust or sandwiches and Piadina Romagnola. You will learn the secrets of doughs, baking, shapes and textures. At the end of the class, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your breads with us or take them home with the recipes and information provided during the class. I will also give you info on flours abroad. Don't miss the opportunity to create your own homemade bread and delight your palate with the authentic flavors of Italian baking!

    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)!

    What a lovely evening - a very personal cooking experience with Luisa in her home. Some great cooking tips and conversation as well!

    If we could give her 10 stars we would! She was gracious fun and amazing to work with. We never felt rushed with our class and made tiramisu and 2 types of pasta. We sat to lunch and had an excellent conversation Would recommend making time for this class!

    Thank you for the best meal we had in Tuscany! So much more than a meal. We learned to make our own pasta from the family traditions. Incredible meats, wine, and cheeses and an evening full of personal conversations. We learned so much and felt like members of the family. Thanks for sharing the old ways of cooking and opening your home to us. It was our most memorable experience!

    Cesarina from 2022Location: Pistoia    Languages: Italian and English
    "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."
