Ciao! Hi, I'm Maria.
Nicola and I were the first hosts of Airbnb Experience in the Cinque Terre.
We have welcomed more than 2500 guests on our boat and have received thousands of 5 star reviews.
We spent with our guests wonderful days between the sea, amazing views, wine, Spritz at sunset and preparation of typical Italian meal on board.
The passion for Italian cuisine has been handed down for generations in my family and I have also brought this passion to the sea by boat.
But the kitchen tastes of home, love, family and therefore I am happy to welcome you to my home for this new adventure.

This class with Maria was lovely for a socially distanced birthday celebration for a friend. The truffles were very easy to make and delicious! L Maria also had lots of ideas for how to customize the truffles in the next time one makes them which is great! She was very knowledgeable about her region and told us some stories that provided a welcome distraction from the pandemic.

This was a fun and easy dessert. Maria explained not just what to do but also why were were doing each step. My niece (age 16) really enjoyed herself and the chocolate salami is delicious!

We had a great time with Maria, she was very good at explaining the recipe and answering any questions. She kept is fun and casual and we liked how she incorporated stories of her country. Learning a traditional Italian cooking technique was really cool because we can repeat it, and she also showed us how to adapt the recipe for other options. Highly recommended!!!!!

Maria's class was fun and perfect for Valentine's Day and the treats we made were yummy! Maria did a great job checking in with everyone to make sure nobody got behind. We appreciated her flexibility to allow us to change ingredients as we were making the treats! It would have been great to hear a little bit more about the tradition of chocolate salami (in which areas of Italy it's most popular, is there a particular time of day or year when they eat it etc.) but that wasn't a big deal. It was helpful that she gave us the conversions in the class but that also would have been great to have ahead of time. There was a bit of communication gap confirming the number additional guests who would join last minute but we figured out and she was very gracious. We really enjoyed getting to know her and look forward to working with her in the future.

We booked this for a remote birthday and had the best time making truffles with Maria. She went at a great pace and made sure everyone was able to follow along. The birthday girl has an amazing time and we loved learning about Cinque Terre and her stories. Grazie Millie Maria!
