Hi from Paola!

Cesarina Paola welcomes us to her characteristic apartment in the Oltretorrente neighborhood or, as they say in Parma, "di là dall'acqua" (beyond the river), in one of the hamlets that overlooks the Ducal park. It is a small paradise, a stone's throw from the center, immersed in the tranquility and greenery of the park. At Paola's home, we discover her great passions: fashion (she is a fashion designer by profession) and cooking, an interest she has been cultivating since she was just a child. Our Cesarina loves to experiment and sample various types of dishes, enhancing the flavors of the local cuisine, adding a pinch of imagination to the classic tradition. "The locally produced staple foods are indispensable ingredients for me and dishes prepared at home transmit the warmth of my family." Her favorite recipes? Erbazzone (a savory pie of greens), savarin di riso, tortelli d'erbetta al burro fuso e parmigiano Reggiano (herb-stuffed pasta pillows drizzled with melted butter and grated Reggiano parmesan), la Duchessa ... all served on a cheerful and colorful table. Paola takes care that all is perfect down to the minimum detail. "My profession always influences me!"

My family and I spent a day with Paola, exploring the local foods and then in Paola & Marco’s home cooking really simple yet tasty food. We had such a good time, learnt how to cook new foods and in very good company. Would 100% recommend this experience to anyone wanting to eat and cook like a local

L'esperienza con Paola è stato molto emozionante. Ci siamo divertiti a cucinare con lei e abbiamo imparato tante cose del posto e assaggiato sapori autentici. Paola ci ha fatto sentire a nostro agio e mangiare i prodotti cucinati insieme è stato piacevole. Consiglio assolutamente l'esperienza!

Dopo questo incontro, le mie figlie hanno rifatto la crostata e le tagliatelle (buonissime!). Paola ci ha trasmesso la passione per la cucina, per i dettagli e per le tradizioni di Parma. Piacevolissimo il pranzo in compagnia e magnifica la casa. Complimenti!
