I learned how to make pasta since I was really young by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... she is the true host and the true protagonist of this story.

She lived her childhood during the second world war, her mum taught her how to feed children with just 2 ingredients: eggs and flour.
Whenever I sat in her kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of that time. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: not just the handmade pasta technique but an entire tradition passed down through the ages.
I decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.

Over three years, we've hosted more than 5,000 travelers in our kitchen.

And soon other grandmas in our small village decided to be part of this crazy project!

Nonna Angela, Nonna Gio, Nonna Lalla, Nonna Marghe, Nonna Renzia are waiting for you, amore!

I scheduled this for a team building event and loved it! I will never make boxed pasta again, very easy to follow recipe and instructions and the hosts were incredible and so nice! I would highly recommend this experience!

Really such a great experience. My wife and I were a little nervous going in but it was just so much fun. They're very funny and patient, and we loved every minute! Made for a perfect "date morning."

It was great to cook at our kitchen at home and feel like you are in Italy 🇮🇹! I love it that Nona speaks italian and Daniel translated for us. My daughter and I enjoyed it a lot and ate it all right after the workshop. Live it!

We had this experience as part of a team building activity and must say that we were all very happily suprised and proud of ourselves at the end of the session. Chiara and Nonna are so nice and positive and the energy is great! Wonderful stories are shared, and most importantly amazing pasta is made. We were all left in awe with our hand-made delicious results! We definitely recommend this activity for teams, groups of friends or even family. Great activity that will exceed your expectations. Grazie mille Chiara e Nonna. Tanti bacci 😘
