Straight from the land of ravioli, lasagne and Parmigiano Reggiano (I was born in Reggio Emilia), I moved near beautiful Lake Como in 2004.

My name is Valentina also known as “Pastamatta” because I'm very passionate about traditional cooking from all over the world... this is why I'm ready to create a great and unique experience for those of you curious about coloured pasta!

Are you ready for a crazy cooking class?!

We had a terrific experience with Valentina. Her kitchen is beautiful and has an amazing view overlooking Lake Como. The pasta making was creative and unique, with each of us able to make our own flavor combinations. This is a fun and interactive event that I would highly recommend.

Valentina is a wonderful host with a beautiful home overlooking Lake Como. The pasta we made was non-traditional but completely unique and fun to prepare. A great learning experience...and she was wonderful company as we enjoyed our pasta after class!

We had a lovely night at in Valentina's kitchen. Valentina was a passionate and fantastic teacher. The view of the lake from the kitchen is incredible. The kitchen classroom is modern and well equipped. We really enjoyed learning methods that we can take home to our own kitchen and show our friends and family. We enjoyed sitting down and eating our pasta and sharing stories with Valentina. Thoroughly recommend this class!

We had a fantastic evening being hosted by Valentina, who took us through not only the practical fun part of making pasta but also the thought processes when choosing and mixing flour and other ingredients to create a totally unique, personalised pasta, which we then got to sit down and eat once we'd prepared it and Valentina had cooked it for us. The views from the kitchen windows of the lake from that elevation are spectacular and Valentina was very friendly and informative. A great experience well worth doing!

Pastamatta ist wunderschön gelegen mit Blick auf den See. Valentina ist sehr sympathisch und ich habe viele Dinge über Nudeln gelernt, die ich zuvor nie verstanden habe. Besonders gefallen hat uns, dass einige Zutaten direkt aus Valentina's Garten stammen. Sehr lecker, ein sehr schöner Abend!
