We had a wonderful weekend in Bologna in January and the highlight for us was spending the morning shopping for ingredients in the market and learning to cook some classic regional dishes. We were ably looked after by the charming Carlo and he made the experience for us really wonderful. We made fresh Tortelloni, Ragu, and a delicious and much easier than I thought Tiramisu. We enjoyed a great lunch accompanied by some delicious wine and left with many happy memories

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Bologna. For years it was my dream to have a cooking lesson in Italy and this experience met our expectations in every way!
Carlo and his team were amazing. We learned a lot, not only about cooking but offering some insights into the history of Bologna. I would suggest doing the market and lesson as going to the market alone was so interesting and a treat in itself.
We would highly recommend this experience.

We had a great day with Carlo and his family learning new skills and having fun in the kitchen. Its a full on day with lots to do and even more to eat and drink. Myself and a friend had a wonderful time and took away fantastic memories of Bologna.

Met big Carlo to go shopping. Don't miss this bit, lots of tastings and delicious coffee. Back to the school which is very simple and relaxed but great fun and we learnt loads. Really proud of the pasta we made and bolognese ragu was delicious. Great lunch with our pasta and sauces plus peaches and Tiramisu. Thank you Carlo, a day to remember.

We had an amazing experience with Carlo, Anna, and Gabriella. Carlo showed us from the begininng how to make pasta, the classic bolognese sauce, tortellini, and since we had some extra time, tiramisu. It was done with patience, without hurry, and with attention to detail. It was almost like being with family. Being raised in an Italian family, it brought back memories of being with big family dinners on Sunday. We sat down, to enjoy our dinner, ( with an elegant table setting, prosecco, and wine) as if we have known Carlo, Anna, and Gabriella...we hated to leave. Not only did we have a great learning experience, it was cultural immersion. They are so delightful, warm and hospitable. I would do it again, possibly the market tour next time....and yes...I WILL be in Bologna again.
