Hi from Barbara!

"I grew up in Acqui Terme, in the countryside, with my father and family who were farmers and producers of wine (for family consumption). I have always enjoyed cooking delicious and tasty things. Recently I'm specializing in the production of fresh pasta and pizza. Main courses of meat, including horse (Salento influences, especially pieces of horse). I could easily offer both a Piedmontese and a Salento menu with homemade orecchiette and pieces of horse, accompanied by an excellent Salento primitivo. I like strong flavors and savory dishes and I always try to give the dishes character. I like to use flavors and spices."

My specialities
  •  Tomini al verde

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. We learned a lot. He absolutely hates spinach, but Barbara made a mix of spinach, leek and ricotta cheese. (I need that recipe!) He had a large portion of the ravioli when it was complete. Now, he wants to make ravioli at home. But I do not have any of the equipment- so I have to roll out the pasta etc with a rolling pin and make them by hand. Oh well.... We would certainly do another class like this again.

Barbara was a delightful host. Warm and welcoming and immediately made us feel at home. She was very patient and helpful in teaching us. Had lots of interesting stories about food and wine making in Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal she helped us make and her company. We've learnt many valuable skills in pasta making which we plan to use at home. Grazie !

Barbara was very engaging and the apartment welcoming. The food was extremely well prepared and Barbara made it seem effortless. And of course the food was delicious.

Barbara is a fabulous host and cooker. She explains very well what we are doing, she is sharing a passion for cooking. We did very traditional recipes from Piemont. She gave me good tips taht I'm using now in my professional kitchen. And its fabulous ! I have a great moment, like if I was with a friend.

What a WONDERFUL time we had with Barbara!! She was the perfect hostess and what a cook! We enjoyed the local market and chatted about food and culture. I am still thinking about the Tira Misu and that apron! Thank you Barbara, for having us in your home.
