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!

Really lovely way to spend my time on a birthing lockdown evening. Nice easy company, and I learned skills I'll use for life - how to make wonderful torfie pasta, my favourite!

My Niece thought of this experience for her moms birthday. It was very fun. Chiara and her grandma were fantastic. It was so easy to learn from these two ladies. They were happy and friendly to all of us. The home atmosphere was perfect setting for the class. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience

We had a private class for family for my mother’s birthday and it was a wonderful experience. Chiara and Nonna were just wonderful and I learned a lot! Best virtual experience I’ve tried during the pandemic by far!

Who knew we could make homemade pasta?! With the help of our gracious Italian hosts and teachers, we had a delicious fettuccine meal in an hours time! The time was engaging, food delicious, and overall a great experience! MUST DO!

Es war ein ganz tolles Erlebnis in diesen Zeiten. Ich konnte ein wenig von meiner Küche aus nach Italien reisen. Das nenne ich über Grenzen hinweg kommunizieren....Deutschland, England und Italien. Chiara war so herzerfrischend und Nonna einfach fantastisch. Immer wieder gerne.

This event is so great for people to get together and learn how to cook something valuable virtually. Being able to connect with the hosts as they taught us from their home kitchens in Italy was especially cool. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic and fun experience.
