Hi from Martina!

"It all started in kindergarten, I just wanted to be in the kitchen helping the cook and never in class. I grew up in a small town on the Bolognese Apennines, at my grandparents' house. From Nonna Giuliana I learned what it means to show your love for the family through the kitchen, gathering for the Sunday lunch ritual. From Rina, a special woman who I describe as 'everything I have not', I learned to welcome and take care of people naturally, at any time. When I was a child I was enchanted to observe their movements, their hands and I tried to imitate them.  Knead, mix, wait and see the results. I open the doors of my home to convey what I have learned, accompanying my guests on a journey between past, present and future."

A really fun class. We enjoyed making pasta , but had just as much fun learning more about the Italian culture. Martina is an excellent host and made us feel comfortable from the minute we walked in the door.

Martina was a very engaging host and I enjoyed cooking the various aperitifs that she had chosen for us.

Martina was a warm and welcoming host. Sharing stories about her neighborhood in Bologna’s arts and culture district while we walked around on a gorgeous near-spring day. We visited an authentic locale market and park, returning to her impeccable and charming home where we created and shared a tasty lunch. It was lovely way to spend a weekend day while on a business trip to Bologna.

Martina was awesome. She took a lot of time with us and we didn't feel rushed. This was a birthday present for my teenage grandsons and was the highlight of their vacation to Italy.
