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!

10/10 loved learning with Nonna and the personal touches with questions while working. Looking forward to another class with a different dish sometime soon!

We loved our private pasta making class! The hosts are charismatic and charming, the production quality is top-notch and they let us choose the pasta we cooked!

We loved this experience so much! Even though we could not physically travel to Italy as we had planned due to the pandemic, Chiara and Nonna brought Italy to us and we had the best time. We will definitely be making this pasta again I would love to do another class with them and learn something else. Grazie mille!!

An amazing experience! Chiara and Nonna were fabulously energetic, kind, and encouraging!! Even though our pasta was not as beautiful as Nonna’s, we learned a lot (and now, we have something to strive for). Would recommend for any duo (friends, couple, or whoever) who is looking to do something different with their evening, anyone who loves food, or anyone who just loves drinking good wine with nice people!
