Hi from Cristina!

Cristina welcomes her guests in a villa surrounded by greenery with large outdoor spaces and large windows, where you can admire the garden and the centuries-old olive trees. A little corner of paradise not far from the center of the Eternal City. "Since my tender age I have always looked with admiration the love with which my grandmother, of Apulian origins, worked for hours in the kitchen. I still remember her hands and her aprons, often soiled with flour and the aroma of 'good things and genuine' that spread throughout the house and enveloped me in a pleasant feeling of well-being."

The Pizza and gelato cooking class with Cristina was fabulous, fun, and delicious! It was a highlight for our family. Thanks so much

We did the Four Roman Pastas masterclass with Cristina and it was great! It took a while to get out to her beautiful home (about an hour and 2 buses from our hotel in Piazza Venezia), but it was so worth it! Her garden was absolutely beautiful and an idyllic place to enjoy our four (count ‘em, four) plates of pasta. Definitely come with an empty stomach because it was a lot of food! We started by making two types of fresh pasta, then we started on the sauces. Starting with the base of cacio e pepe to learn the fundamentals, we then moved on to pasta alla gricia (cacio e pepe + guanciale), then carbonara (gricia + egg), and finally amatriciana (gricia + tomato). We watched her do the first two, taking lots of notes, then we got to take the reins on our own - having a private lesson meant we were really able to ask questions and learned a lot. She also followed up with recipes on WhatsApp after the class and we’re excited to try them all when we get home!
