What you'll do

We will start with a welcome coffee and cookies to get to know each other a little bit. Then we will get right to the action by starting to prepare the filling for the Ravioli: I'll show you how to do a really taste filling with ricotta and spinaches, salt pepper and nut mag. Then we will start with flour and eggs and hands in dough! From the base of the dough you will do in first person, following my instructions, three different shapes of pasta. We will roll it out by hand and start making shapes for Ravioli & Tagliatelle, but not without a small aperitif with tomato basil “bruschetta” and Prosecco! It is already time to prepare another dough, the one for the Gnocchi with flour and potatoes. Our menu is ready: gnocchi with pesto, tagliatelle with special sauce and ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinaches, with butter and sage sauce. Together we will cook the pasta and prepare the table to eat together all the fresh pasta you have made! A cheer and buon appetito!

I'm Francesca, passionate about cooking and gastronomy. I learned the art of fresh pasta from my grandmothers and from Marzia, a friend and pastamaker, a true guru of fresh pasta. I love sharing this passion of mine in my small home workshop. Before opening the house I worked with several pastamakers who taught me some tricks of the trade. This experience won the "airbnb most successful newbie florence Aword 2018" award and the "most growing experience 2019" award.I have worked in the restaurant business for years, and this has helped me know how to organize people during meals, help them learn new things and share moments of conviviality.This is a passion and a mission. Together with other friends I often organize gastronomic themed events. I wait for you in a magical, artistic, intimate of my house!

Where you'll be

This experience has recently moved to my home. We are really very close to the city center, so you won't find it difficult to reach it easily by public transport or on foot. The atmosphere is really familiar and very intimate, far from traffic in a quit area.I am happy to host in the place where I live, which has turned into a true fresh pasta workshop, with all the necessary comforts and equipment. A real Florentine home rich of arts and light!

Francesca was warm and so fun! She is great with communicating from before the class even starts to making sure you understand everything throughout. The class was fantastic and she is not kidding when she says to come hungry!!!

I cannot recommend this experience enough. Francesca makes you feel at ease and at home as soon as you enter. She is an absolute delight to spend some time with. Oh, and the food is fantastic! We were full before the final course was served… but we made room! Personally, I have been Intimidated to make gnocchi, but Francesca made it clear and easy. If you are on the fence, book this experience. Well worth it!
