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!

This was such an incredible experience! I had never had gnocchi before and to make it from scratch made it even more delicious. Chiara and Nonna were great hosts, were very engaged, enthusiastic, and ensured our entire group was taken care of! This experience being virtual did not take away from the bond we had with one another as well with the our group. I cannot wait to attend another experience soon.

Such a great experience! Chiara & Nonna were very entertaining, patient and engaging. Our group got to make gnocchi and pesto from scratch, and their recipe was so delicious! They were pretty high-tech also, having multiple camera angles, which really allowed you to see how Nonna was preparing everything. I am definitely going to recommend this online experience to friends and family. Grazie mille!

It was just amazing and fun! Chiara and Nonna are super cute and lovely and we really enjoyed spending time with them! They showed us how to make lasagne and now we are prepared for the next dinner night. The camera angle was also perfectly set up and the music suited Chiara and Nonna. All in all, something we can highly recommend.

Chiara and Nonna are great! Clearly both are knowledgeable and practiced in pasta making, and they were able to make the whole thing really accessible to a true beginner. They had us point the camera down at what we were doing at points so they could give us tips which I really appreciated. It was a lot of fun and super delicious!
