Excellent host! The four in our party enjoyed taking turns in the various stages in making two pastas and tiramisu. We were served tastY bruschetta, meats, cheeses and and olives prior to making the pasta dishes. Our dishes were very good, thanks to an excellent chef. Highly recommend this host.

My husband and I had a wonderful evening with Paola as she shared her recipes and techniques for making pasta. We made tortelloni and tagliatelle, which were delicious with the sauces that we ate them with. We thoroughly enjoyed the stories and tips that she shared with us. The whole evening was a delight! We would highly recommend Paola and her cooking class! Thank you for sharing your love of cooking!!
