We were booked into a morning's cookery school and it was amazing. The staff are so friendly and welcomed us. There was an option to start off making pasta or making the sauces but you could chop and change and see how it was all...More

I was the only American tourist taking the class, so I had to do all the mixing, rolling, and folding myself. My teacher, Carla, was very patient with me "pinch, pinch, pinch" and I did a pretty good job making tortellini, tortelloni, and tagliatelle. After...More

I've been making pasta "by hand" using my KitchenAid for years. Here we did it all by hand and the results were amazing! A word about our teacher, Andrea. He was the best. He was both very good at explaining, showing and correcting our technique....More
