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."

My specialities
  •  Tigelle (specialty of Emilia) with mixed mushrooms
  •  Tortellini in capon broth

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.

Martina was amazing. She made us feel so welcome in her home and explained about not only what we were cooking but about the city as well. She helped when needed and walked us through step by step. We had an amazing time and cannot wait to try these recipes at home! My husband said next time we are there we are going to do her food market and cooking tour!

Mertina was an excellent host. Shr took her time with us and explained all our silly questions. She was engaging and intelligent. We recommend her highly and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the class

Martina was a delightful host - so hospitable, knowledgeable and welcoming. The tour of the town and markets was a great place to start learning more about Italian cuisine and culture. She was a great teacher - very patient and encouraging. Martina was able to provide a lot of great suggestions for the remainder of my Italian itinerary! It was a brilliant experience, would highly recommend.

Martina è stata perfetta! Solare, simpatica, gentile, accogliente e chiara nelle spiegazioni. Abbiamo trascorso una splendida mattinata, ci è sembrato di stare a casa di una amica che conosci da tanto tempo! Sicuramente torneremo a trovarla. Grazie mille di tutto!
