"I'm an altamuran transferred to Milan. I delight in preparing everything from pasta to bread to biscuits, ranging in my recipes between meat dishes, fish, legumes and vegetables. I enjoy continually experimenting with new dishes and am curious about every kitchen in the world. I have been keeping my yeast for several years. I prefer raw materials to km 0, of growers of Lodi. I'm an empathetic and sunny person; I like to have people in the house and take care of them at the table. Passionate about interior design, I'm very attentive to the care of my home because I like that my guests have a visual pleasure in addition to the taste."

My sister, niece and I had a lovely time with Santa. The whole experience was wonderful - from Santa's warm personality, to her cozy home-- she had food and drink out when we arrived and fun music playing. She was very well prepared and taught us in a way that we now feel confident we can create a tasty pasta meal with tiramisu for dessert for our family and friends. Highly recommend this opportunity! Thank you, Santa!

Santa is an amazing teacher and chef/cook! My husband and I had never made any type of homemade pasta nor tiramisu, and under the guidance of Santa, we are looking forward to trying these dishes at home! We appreciated that she was patient and gave excellent instructions along with the history behind the dishes, all FRESH and local ingredients. She is extremely knowledgeable and kind and her home is very inviting with the perfect ambiance and lighting! The antipasti prepared for us was lovely, and the wine paired with the dishes was perfect! A wonderful experience all together, and I highly recommend her and her specialty dishes! She speaks English and Italian, so that was a plus as we're just learning Italian. We will definitely take another class with her again, as should you!

It was by far a really great experience to learn to make pasta and tiramisu from Santa. We were already impressed when we walked in by her friendliness and after we tastetet the antipasti that she had prepared for us we were sure that it was going to be amazing. We learned unter her careful eye to do tagliatelle, ravioli and tiramisu. This will be our signature dishes when we get home for sure! We thank her for everything and can only recommend this course!!
