Your experience

    I welcome you to Modena, a city that mirrors my heart: rich in traditions and love for good food. I spent my childhood in the kitchen, alongside my grandmother, savoring the aromas and flavors of tradition. I distinctly remember the morning scent of homemade fresh pasta, such as tagliatelle and other local delicacies. My grandmother taught me to 'get my hands in the dough', a precious lesson that I still cultivate with enthusiasm, dedication, and that I enjoy letting my guests discover. You can watch how I prepare fresh pasta, to make tasty tagliatelle with ragù. After the pasta, there's the tiramisu, done to perfection. I look forward to sharing with you the delights of Modena, its authentic flavors, and its rich culinary tradition. Are you ready?

    Una esperienza molto piacevole, le Cesarine molto simpatiche e prodighe di consigli e spiegazioni. Molto chiare le cose da fare per ottenere una sfoglia per fare la pasta in casa. Il risultato è sorprendente. Ottimo !!!!! Una bella esperienza da consigliare e riprovare.

    We enjoyed our morning with Luisa and her friend Ilaria. They were so welcoming and we had fun spending time with them. They gave us a quick tour through the covered market and purchased some cherries to taste before heading to Luisa's home. She showed us how to make homemade pasta (tagliatelle and farfalle) and served it with her own (pre-made) ragu, as well as appetizers, wine, a main course, and tiramisu, all of which she had made in advance. The food and wine were delicious and we had a lovely time, but for the price, we were expecting a more hands-on market and cooking experience.

    We had and excellent experience. Luisa and Maria were wonderful hosts: patient and encouraging. We can’t wait to go home and prepare the pasta and tiramisu for the rest of our family. We couldn’t have had a better time. Thanks so much!!

    Maria Luisa
    Cesarina from 2019Location: Modena    Languages: Italian and English
    Modena is a city rich in tradition, famous throughout the world for good food and passion for the automotive industry. On its hills, you can see castles, fortresses, towers, and medieval villages, testimonies of its history, in a landscape that satisfies mind and spirit. Luisa spent her childhood in grandmother's kitchen, surrounded by the aromas and flavors of peasant cuisine. Every day she smelled the scent of fresh homemade pasta, tigelle, and crescentine, and it was exactly her grandmother who taught her to 'put your hands in the dough’. Our Cesarina lives closer to the historic center, where she hides a real treasure: the old family vinegar factory, which she loves to show her guests.
