I'm a teacher and a certified cook 2° level of risk. My family has been from Bologna for three generations, since the beginning of 1900'. As a child born in Bologna, the so called city of Food, I could hardly wait till the holidays to make tortellini, adoring the festivities that got the family reunite. I learned from my mom to treat food ritualistically using seasonal ingredients. Food has always had an important place in my life and teaching how to make fresh pasta has come easily.

Our cooking class was wonderful! Grazia was a warm and welcoming host and excellent instructor. She made making pasta fun and easy! We really enjoyed her class — a highlight of our trip to Bologna! We would definitely return!

Grazie is a very good cook and she creates a very cosy atmosphere in her flat. During the course you learn a lot about the traditional cuisine in Bologna. The dishes were delicious and we had a great time at the pasta class.

Joining the cooking class with Grazia was an amazing experience. She introduced us to the art of making pasta, answering all our questions and sharing with us her knowledge, tipps and tricks. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant and chatting with Grazia the time flew by. The pasta and her preparation of the dishes were delicious. We definitely will try to reproduce the results at home and highly recommend Grazia‘s class. She is a great host and did everything to make us feel like we are at home. Thanks a lot!

Grazia is a very warm and knowledgeable woman. Learning how to make fresh pasta was a great experience, one I can only recommend. Grazia prepared the ragù and the filling for the tortelloni in advance and she instructed me on how to make the fresh pasta. Afterwards I got to eat the freshly prepared pasta, which was delicious. :)

Grazia is à wonderful and inspiring teacher! My husband and I had a great time preparing two different kinds of pasta in a sympathetic atmosphere in the house of Grazia. She taught us the most important rules for making pasta and we can’t wait to try it at home. We truly recommend her class for everyone who is visiting Bologna.

Une très bonne expérience, Grazia m'a très vite mise à l'aise. Elle est prévenante et pédagogue, elle s'est adaptée à mes allergies alimentaires. Les pâtes que nous avons réalisées étaient excellentes et je me sens à l'aise de les refaire à la maison.
