I learnt how to make pasta by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... I spent my entire childhood making pasta with her!

Whenever I sat in my grandma's kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her own mom and grandma. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: the handmade pasta techniques and traditions passed down through the ages. I learned everything from her, and decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.
Soon other grandmas around Italy joint our projects, sharing their pasta secrets!

Over three years, we've hosted more than 4,000 travelers in our kitchen (check our in-person experience at https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/55449).
Now we're launching our online experience...let's cook together!

Great experience. Learned now to make pasta by hand first time. The hosts were very helpful. We under estimated size of pans needed. Needed cooking instructions.

I cannot begin to tell you what a great experience this was. Our hosts were both great instructors and flat out hilarious. The instructor is very patient with students and translate all of Nonna's sass. There was dancing and music. The meal produced some seriously delicious ravioli. I took this experience with a friend and now we absolutely want to meet these wonderful chefs in person when the pandemic is over. For now, teaching on video is really quite good and surprisingly effective. Thank you all for your good humor!

we had a great time making pasta with Auntie! It was such a great experience to share with our family who we can't spend time with right now with the pandemic. I would highly recommend it! And the pasta turned out delish. Thanks!!

Nonna and Elisabetta made the experience so much fun and easygoing! It was a fun way to switch up our Saturday night and we will definitely be making pasta again soon!
