What you'll do

Welcome from Chef Dennis in one of the first and most recommended Home Food Class in town!

Feel like home in our real Bolognese house in the very center of Bologna, 7 minutes walking from the main square. In our cozy and 100% safe environment, we'll feel how Pasta is an experience of Love and Tradition, made with the Fresh ingredients our Italian Mum would choose for us on a Sunday Morning :)
I Promise it to you as I did to all the 1500+ happy people who took this class (more info, pics and contact at IG PastaRisottoBologna)

Starting from scratch, YOU'll make the dough manually, I'll tell you how to play with it and we'll make our own meal through - both - a traditional and a creative process.
While YOU'll create all the different fillings, the proper sauce(and a surprise one, made right at the moment!).

Then we'll have a break to taste 5+ different kind of cheeses and local aged ham. Guided and unlimited tasting it's necessary to learn a way to get a proper result that you will be happy to replicate when you will be home

In this cooking class you'lI learn how to make filled and traditional pasta: Tortelloni, Tortellini, Ravioli, Agnolotti, Tagliatelle and Garganelli. So far just 3 classes finished to eat all of them. It's not a challange, but :)

Why an Home Experience in an Italian House? Well, restaurant kitchens are worldwide spread and all the same. Home is care! :)
Other things to note
My goal is to let you know the most simple way to make an excellent dough. If the dough you'll do back home will be great, your pasta will be as well! Nice and good tricks & tips to make your filled and not filled pasta back home without having hundred different tools :)

Where you'll be

Via del Pratello's spirit represents an intact evidence of the city's nightlife tradition, where students and locals converge giving life to a dynamic and vibrant street. Its historical pubs - cheap and no demanding - are the shelter for endless chatting with the company of a beer/glass of wine.
We'll be in our typical Bolognese apartment, with a window to the Pratello movida and another one which looks at the red roofs.

My daughter and I had the most wonderful pasta cookery lesson from Dennis. We learned how to make 5 different types of pasta and were clearly instructed and encouraged throughout. It was brilliant and we got to eat what we had made. Learned a tremendous amount as Dennis is so knowledgable.

If you visit Bologna, this is the cooking class to take. Dennis is an expert, not only in creating pasta, but teaching the process from start to finish. You will not be disappointed, and you will come away with new skills to impress your friends and family back home. Gratzi!!

Dennis’s class is a must for anyone interested in learning how to make authentic Italian pasta, at any level of experience. And even if you aren’t, I think you should push yourself and try it anyway, because at the very least you’ll have a better idea of how something you’ve probably had a million times is made. I told Dennis my preference for learning about dumplings like ravioli and tortellini, and he took me through the process from start to finish, both for dough and filling. He broke down the steps in ways I could easily understand, which meant that he never had to take over for me. When we sampled the result at the end I was left amazed that this was food I had made basically by myself! Dennis sends a PDF with the recipes after the class, and I can’t wait to make pasta again back home for family and friends.

Go learn with Dennis in the food capital of Italy! I've made pasta before and I still learned a bunch at his lesson, and had a great time doing it.

It was a very nice experience. We cooked several types of pasta with different sauces and everything was delicious. Dennis gave me some useful tips. Also, even though we were following a recipe, I was asked to do some customizations and do some changes to my taste, which was quite nice
