What you'll do

2 guest minimum. NO INDIVIDUAL bookings.

We will prepare an amazing Pasta night with Pinzimonio, Bruschetta, HOMEMADE Spaghetti, Pesto, Tomato-basil sauces, and Tiramisu or Apple Crostata.

Starting with a welcome drink of Prosecco, we’ll celebrate the night together. Bruschetta with fresh bread will be our first treat.

Then, we’ll get our hands dirty making the pasta dough from scratch! I’ll bring my pasta machine to roll it out like a pro.

We’ll make the simple sauces, pesto and tomato-basil and cook the pasta in a flash. You’ll learn a little bit about Italian food culture in the North and the South.

We will end with complimentary coffee and a small bite of pre-prepared Tiramisu, just to end on a sweet bite.

Having lived in Italy for a time and working in a restaurant in Florence, I learned the art of making fresh pasta and "la dolce vita." Having worked in many Italian and Mediterranean restaurants in Los Angeles, I can share restaurant secrets and even my list of the BEST Italian restaurants in LA.

My favorite thing about Joanna's class was her focus on simple and delicious. Everything Joanna taught us used fresh ingredients and focused on bringing out those flavors. Most of the dishes were only a few ingredients, but incredibly tasty. I left the class feeling like I could ACTUALLY make pasta from scratch on my own now. Joanna was great. She was easy to talk to and very welcoming. She created a great environment and knew how to instruct without being overbearing or pushy. She's an amazing teacher, with a great background and qualifications to match. I would highly recommend her class.

I found Joanna on AirBnB Experiences, best decision ever. I wanted to give my boyfriend a creative birthday gift, and at the end of the night he exclaimed "Best birthday ever!!" Needless to say, couldn't have asked for more. Joanna was not only quick with her replies up to the event, but allowed me to be a part of the process - from choosing the courses to offering to join her at the store to pick it all out. The day-of, she brought everything necessary, and made the process super simple for us. All we had to do was relax and have fun! She was so friendly, and made the process so enjoyable and made us both feel like cooking was actually easy! She showed us the basics ( ie knife skills) to the more in depth cooking (ie making the pasta by hand). The menu was amazing... champagne to kick it off, pinzimonio (veggies) and bruschetta as appetizers, angel hair pasta as our entree with two sauces: pesto and tomato basil, and apple crostata with whipping cream and pomegranate as dessert. It...was...delicious !!! And we had leftovers too :) I cannot wait to do another cooking class with her! Her knowledge of cooking, friendly fun vibe, and reasonable pricing made this an experience I can't wait to do again. Thanks Joanna !

Joanna helped me host an event for clients this week. She was great at customizing the menu to our needs, checking out the location in advance and bringing in the supplies. We had a pasta class for 7 people with well prepped stations for each. A nice touch was that Joanna baked fresh bread that morning for our bruschetta and brought fresh figs from her garden to pair with cheese as an appetizer. Great way to start the night off. Joanna was a great instructors and everyone in the group had fun getting their hands on the dough to make pasta and Bolognese sauce. Joanna had prepared a delicious Tiramisu for dessert. I’d recommend Chef Joanna’s pasta class.

Wow what a meal! Joanna cooked us up, or I guess I should say taught us how to cook up our own, home made pasta which was out of this world. She provided Prosecco, appetizers, we made dinner and after even made home made apple tarts which were amazing. She has world class knowledge and is so sweet and kind.
