Immerse yourself in the Italian culture and lifestyle and learn how to cook authentic Italian recipes in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Our cooking classes are offered in a farmhouse in Bologna countryside. Our English speaking native Italian chef will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious Italian recipes and share his culinary secrets with you!
You will be picked up at your hotel in Bologna city center by a private driver and after 20 minutes ride you will reach a lovely farmhouse in the countryside. You will be welcomed by an expert “sfoglina” ‐ cook (pasta sheet maker) who will give you an introduction on the history of the handmade pasta and the region traditional recipes.
With skill and patience and a magic touch the “sfoglina” will teach you the secrets of making and rolling out the pasta. As a kind of magic tortellini, tortelloni and tagliatelle will appear!
You will be provided with a pasta board, a rolling pin and fresh ingredients and will try ourselves what you’ve been shown! You will prepare the pastas and relating sauces including the delicious ragout – Bolognese sauce!
Mamma mia che fame! And finally it’s time to have dinner! A yummy meal based on the fresh made pasta made during the class will be served accompanied by local wine, in the relaxing atmosphere of the farmhouse. Buon appetito!
After the class your driver will take you back to your hotel or apartment in Bologna.
