Our Cesarina Margherita is Bolognese doc, passionate about cooking and wine expert. Everything in his house, overlooking the Municipal Theater, has a story: the furniture, the service of plates, glasses, cutlery, tablecloths and, of course, the recipes that keep the family secrets. Secrets that guests can 'savor' while enjoying the dishes prepared by Margherita, from mother Paola's chicken to grandma Marisa's pinza with mustard, defined by our Cesarina as "dishes that warm the heart" and which can be adapted to any request, from vegetarian to gluten free, always respecting the culinary tradition.

Gracious, knowledgeable, and welcoming, Margherita created the perfect experience for myself and two friends. For our class, we made tiramisu, tortellini, and tortelloni together. She skillfully accommodated all of our requests, and made us feel comfortable in her beautiful home. Food turned out incredible and delicious. Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful experience cooking with Margharita. She was very welcoming and engaging, her home is lovely and she was great with our kids, explaining every step of the cooking process. After we had a lovely lunch eating the 3 course meal we made. I highly recommend this experience when visiting Bologna, it’s truly special.

Bellissima esperienza nel cuore di Bologna...Margherita è stata molto paziente nell’insegnarmi l’arte della pasta fresca fatta a mano e le ricette della tradizione. Ho passato una piacevole serata degustando i tortelloni preparati con lei, in compagnia della sua splendida famiglia che ringrazio per l’accoglienza e la disponibilità.
