Hi, I'm Patrizia, your local host for this vegetarian cooking class in Siena. I'll welcome you into my kitchen where we'll learn to cook three seasonal recipes using local ingredients sourced at km0. We'll create an appetizer using fresh, seasonal vegetables, make the famous pici all'aglione, and finish with a delicious traditional dessert such as meringata with forest fruit. We'll personalize the lesson according to your preferences and tastes to make the experience even more special. During the lesson, we'll use high-quality extra-virgin olive oil from the Tuscan hills to enhance the flavor of the vegetables. At the end of the class, you'll taste the dishes we prepared during the lesson, served in a three-course menu paired with local wine. Are you ready to learn to cook vegetarian?


We had a truly enjoyable evening with Patrizia. We made the most amazing tiramisu and enjoyed helping to make pasta from a true expert. Patrizia, along with Antoinette (interpreter), guided us through a lovely evening of making ravioli, tortellini, pici and enjoyed some Tuscan wine. We would highly recommend sharing a table with these wonderful people.. They have so much guidance to offer in making the perfect pasta and tiramisu. We can’t wait to get home to try it.

We had the most wonderful evening with Patrizia! She was the most personable and wonderful host we could've asked for. She was so knowledgeable about her craft and truly cared about our experience and if we were learning and enjoying ourselves. We made two different types of pastas (sooo delicious) and tiramisu! She also served us wine and aperitif! A very authentic experience and was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! I would love to do another class with her if I came back!

We had the most amazing night with Patrizia!!! She welcomed us into her home and shared her amazing culture and food with us. It exceeded our expectations and wouldn’t recommend for everyone to enjoy a night here like we did.

We were so fortunate to have nonna Patrizia for our first ever cooking class. We were 2 adults with a 5 year old and a 1 year old but that was not a barrier at all. She welcomed us warmly into her home and made us feel comfortable right from the start. Her in-depth knowledge and skills of pasta and pastry-making shone through. There was passion and, above all, patience with the way she taught. The clever tricks and techniques we learned will stay with us forever. After everything, we sat down to enjoy the wonderful lunch of stuffed ravioli, and the exquisite torta della nonna that we had prepared. I recommend this to anyone looking for a true and authentic Italian home experience.

*SENZA PAROLE* wie wir während des Kurses so schön sagten. Wir waren einfach nur begeistert von diesem einzigartigen Erlebnis bei Patrizia. Von der herzlichen Begrüssung bis zum gemeinsamen Essen einfach perfekt. Wir haben viel gelernt aber auch gelacht! Die Unterstützung von Eli war sehr bereichernd. Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Zeit.

Cesarina from 2019Location: Siena    Languages: Italian, English, Spanish

Siena is a city famous for its art, the delicious food, and because its Palio is the most important in Italy. Many are its faces, and the city is unique. A few steps from Piazza del Campo we meet Patrizia. The family of our Cesarina has been from Siena for generations and her passion for cooking was born in her family. In the kitchen, she loves to use creativity and imagination, but always paying attention to the tradition of flavors and tastes of her land. At her table, guests can enjoy dishes with a strong and unmistakable taste, made with genuine products: legumes, vegetables, meats, extra virgin olive oils, ingredients that give life to the most typical recipes of Siena, admiring the Campanone of the Torre del Mangia.
