What you'll do

Cook with one of the best chefs ever: Our grandma, Nonna Nerina. She and her sisters will show you how to prepare the perfect pasta—no machines, just your hands, the freshest local ingredients, and love. You’ll be part of our crazy family for a day and join us as we walk the tiny medieval streets to Grandma’s kitchen, located in the old winepress where my great-grandpa used to make wine that the community tapped straight from the barrel. It's a special place for my family and the entire village.

Your host

Chiara & Nonna

Host on Airbnb since 2014
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 asked if I could post photos online, to which she replied, “Do what you want, I don’t understand you at all.” Today, she knows what an impact she’s making because people from all over the world come to our home to cook with her, making her very happy.

What's included
