Hi from Maria Cristina!

Parma is a small but enchanting provincial city with a French air and a great culinary tradition. Splendidly framed by Parma’s beautiful historical center, Maria Cristina welcomes us in her enchanting residence.Here, in this house that gives access to a garden of secret beauty in the back, we have the occasion to meet our Guide who – as she tells us – has always loved to cook, ever since she was a little girl. Her passion for cooking was passed down to her by her mother and her grandmother who, with great mastery, would serve up extraordinary menus of which she holds the secrets today.

We had a wonderful time in the home of Christina and Enzo. Christina is a wonderful chef and teacher and Enzo provided the enthusiasm and walnut liquor. So much fun. The highlight of our trip to Italy. Would do it again in a flash.

Me and my son, 15 yrs, had a wonderful experience learning how to cook pasta in a beutiful family home. The hospitality was fantastic and we felt very well taken care of. Now we are buying our own pasta machine to further develop our skills. A highly recommended activity and memorable day of our journey. 👌🏻🇮🇹

We had the BEST time with Cristina and Enzo. I did the lesson with my 2 daughters and we arrived a bit stressed and flustered due to a travel hiccup getting to Parma. Cristina made me a coffee, got the girls started and let me regroup. We made amazing food in their beautiful kitchen and enjoyed it with wine and the company of Enzo and Cristina. Enzo walked us suite a ways to meet my husband and pointed out sites along the way. A great experience.

Our experience was wonderful! Maria made very different dishes than the usual pasta. We loved the appetizer, meatballs, eggplant, wines and cherry tart. Maria and her husband were very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend this food experience.

Cristina and her husband offered an unforgettable experience that my wife and I will cherish and remember for the rest of our lives. They welcomed us in their beautiful home and were immediately treated to pastries and coffee. Cristina patiently showed us how to make tortelli and zabaglione. They even went so far as to give us a taste of their local salami. Cristina’s husband was very jovial and eager to share. He poured us some delicious Lambrusco and gave me a taste of some quality grappa. They made our stay in Italy very special and I thank them for showing me a side of Italian cooking many of us don’t get to see. Also, Parma is a beautiful town.
