What you'll do

If you need a different time or date, please message me. In this BYOB experience, you will make traditional fettuccine pasta. I will teach you tips and tricks from my family on making quick and great tasting pasta. We will make a bechamel sauce (contact me for diet restrictions). I can tailor the class to your skill level, from beginner to advanced or come back for a second advanced class. Ingredients and sauces may vary by the seasons. This experience will last one hour. However, sometimes we may go over if it's a larger class. **This experience is the Winner is the 2019 Airbnb “Belong Anywhere” Experience Award for the Midwest**
Other things to note
There may be Airbnb guests or animals. I have a cat and small dog. I can also host single travelers who want to learn how to make pasta and groups up to 9. If your group is larger, message me and I may accommodate

**This experience is the Winner is the 2019 Airbnb “Belong Anywhere” Experience Award for the Midwest** My Italian grandmother, Nonna, first got me interested in making pasta the hard way, but the most tasty way. I’ve been making pasta for more than 20 years. I make homemade pasta every year for my big Italian family on Thanksgiving, and on smaller occasions throughout the year. I also make pasta on a regular basis throughout Chicagoland. Teaching others to cook makes me happy. Please join me in my home for an unforgettable homemade pasta meal. BYOB. Seasonal ingredients. Gluten free available.

Where you'll be

You will get a personalized experience in a local Chicagoan’s home, making homemade pasta for lunch, dinner, or even a late-night meal. My kitchen is a small, city-style kitchen. You may have a private lesson or you may have many people in a small space. Avg. price of a pasta cooking class in Chicago: $85/pp Average Private lesson: $125/pp. My demo class is a good value. Private lessons available. Do not book if you’re claustrophobic-10x10 space.

Such a great time! We’re locals and the thought of doing this on our own seemed complex and overwhelming. Robin has the tools and qualifications to make this a wonderfully enriching and simple experience. Highly recommended.

Robin is not only a pasta making expert, but she is also a wonderful person with thoughtful stories and someone you can easily connect with. The pasta tasted awesome, we got to be a part of the entire process, and I could not recommend this experience more.

Overall a good experience. The only thing I would comment on is the kitchen being a little cramped. It can fit about four people comfortably.

Very fun experience for a great price. Robin is so welcoming and thoughtful. Did not realize pasta making would be so easy. Robin showed us a traditional recipe and gave us tips on how to personalize it and make it delicious!

Robin was very welcoming and we had a great experience cooking with her. Her instructions are clear and the food was great :) Would definitely come back in the future, whenever we are in Chicago. Thanks again

This Airbnb experience was so much fun! My roommates and I went to celebrate a birthday and we had a great time learning how to make homemade pasta, which is much easier to do than you’d think! Robin helped make things easy and even gave us a recipe card and certificate afterwards(!!). It was also great getting to know the other participants in such a causal and fun environment. Would definitely recommend!
