Hi from Elena!

One perspectives we can have of Bologna is from above, enjoying the view from the city’s towers and monuments, from its hills and terraces of various local places, and from the enchanting terrace in the home of our Cesarina, Elena. From here, we can admire the classic Bolognese rooftops that are tinged to an even more intense red come sunset.Here, we can experience the authentic flavor of Bologna, observing it from above and savoring its delectable cuisine.As we know, Bologna is very famous for its gastronomy. This important notoriety dates back to the Middle Ages, when the city began to welcome students and professors from all over the world to the University. This is how Bolognese cuisine became rich, abundant and very varied. Elena's cuisine offers the classic aromas and flavors of Bolognese tradition: from passatelli in brodo (fresh egg pasta in a meat broth) to 'polpettone' (meatloaf), from 'crescenta con mortadella' (flat bread with cured ham) to 'torta di risoì (sweet rice and almond cake), all following her mother’s recipes.

We had Elana’s husband teach our class. He showed us many family secrets for creating pasta, sauce, and dining with friends.

We had a great time with Saverio, he was a really good teacher. We had a lot of good food and wine. We can recommend this, we loved it!

Saverio was delightful. We learned so much, he was a gracious host and amazing chef. We enjoyed our cooking experience, our time with Saverio and a divine dinner! Looking forward to receiving the recipes to try making here at home!

4 flights of stairs. Little interaction with hosts, too much bread, not as described. No music, only offered 1 wine, excellent tortellini in broth & tiramisu, not worth 200 euros even though all food had no preservatives. Hosts changed time only after we sent msg to confirm.

We really enjoyed this cooking class! The host was very knowledgeable and provided us with great recipes. Would highly recommend this class.
