What you'll do

I know that it's a very strange moment and that sometimes staying at home can be boring, so let's do something fun and satisfying for the whole family: let's make pasta from scratch together as if you were here in Italy with me!

We will first introduce ourselves and go over all the ingredients we'll need, and I’ll share anything you may need to know. Then we will start mixing, kneading, and smelling, and I'll answer your questions and check in on how everyone is doing.

After the experience I'll send you the recipe and we'll keep in touch if you want to book another class with a different recipe!

This experience is for families, so kids are welcome. Also, if it’s your first time making pasta, don’t worry, you'll see how easy it is :)
Other things to note
This experience is designed for families and kids of any ages are welcome :) Send me a message if you have any questions.

After your booking, you'll receive a Zoom link to connect with me!

Ciao everyone! I'm Silvia, a professional chef for the last 10 years and a teacher for adults and kids at Gambero Rosso Cooking School and at Eataly store in Rome. I’m also the host of “Shop, Cook, & Eat Pasta with Chef Silvia” on Airbnb Experiences, and am the Community Leader of Rome.

Over the past 3 years, I’ve welcomed more than 3,000 people to my kitchen in Italy and received thousands of 5-star reviews. Now I’m bringing my pasta making tips to your kitchen with this online experience!

I started cooking at the age of six when my Nana used to wake me up with the smell of homemade bread (my first great memories of my childhood are all about food!). I love sharing family stories, cooking tips and lots of laughs!

Your family will learn to make pasta and more as Italians do, I promise :)

We loved this class and Silvia was delightful! It was so well paced, the sauce and pasta were delicious, and we loved Silvia’s stories and instructions. A wonderful experience l!

Great experience! Sylvia helped us arrange a private party for a post-holiday family get-together, and it was a great way to have some family "together" time even though we were spread across 3 states and 2 time zones. Sylvia was laid back but still gave clear, easy to follow instructions for the pasta and sauce. We had a lot of kids, all different ages, and Sylvia made an extra effort to be sure that they were included in the fun.

What a wonderful way to spend a morning by making a new lunch for your family! Silvia was fantastic: she explained the history of the pasta, made us laugh, & showed us how to cook a fabulous meal. We also learned she has kids classes too! Which we will soon book for our daughter!

Silvia is so wonderful. My son and I took the class this morning, and it was a huge hit. We learned a lot and got to know Silvia. We are now planning a class for our whole family!
