Cook with one of the best chefs ever: Our grandma, Nonna Nerina. She and her sisters will show you how to prepare the perfect pasta—no machines, just your hands, the freshest local ingredients, and love.

You’ll be part of our crazy family for a day and join us as we walk the tiny medieval streets to Grandma’s kitchen, located in the old winepress where my great-grandpa used to make wine that the community tapped straight from the barrel. It's a special place for my family and the entire village.
During the summertime we will take the class outdoor, in the beautiful Roman countryside.
Other things to note
Please Note: Nonna Nerina is 83 yo so she could feel tired. In that case there will be Grandma Angela, Auntie Giovanna and all the rest of the family to take care of you!!!

Whenever I sat in my grandma's kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her own mom and grandma. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: The handmade pasta techniques and traditions passed down through the ages.

I asked if I could post photos online, to which she replied, “Do what you want, I don’t understand you at all.” Today, she knows what an impact she’s making because people from all over the world come to our home to cook with her, making her very happy.

We cooked with Nonna Reznya and she was amazing. Her grand niece Sylvya was our host, driver, translator, tour guide and new friend. The food was truly excellent and we really can go home and prepare this ourselves!

This was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. Nonna and the rest of the team (Chiara, Evelina, and David) were so attentive and warm from the second we booked to the second we said goodbye at the train station. When planning my trip to Italy, I wanted to immerse myself in the culture and try to experience the country more as a “local” than a tourist. This experience allowed me to do just that. From exploring nonna’s quaint and charming home town with exquisite views overlooking the mountains to learning how to prepare homemade pasta, I truly can’t think of a more authentic way to experience Italy. Nonna and Evelina made us feel so at home, which was really refreshing for us as two foreigners. I could type some more praise, but I’m just going to end this by suggesting you press the book now button. You won’t regret it!

This was such a wonderful experience! The group was small which really made it easy to get to know everyone and to have a great time. They were so patient and positive while teaching us! We loved getting to meet our hosts and hear their stories throughout the lesson.

What an awesome experience! Super authentic pasta making with 2 real italian Nonnas! They were so sweet and hospitable - the Italian grandmas I never had!! I enjoyed everything about this experience from venturing out to the countryside outside of the city and seeing a new small town, meeting awesome people from around the world, spending time with 2 Nonnas, and learning how to make perfect pasta! Delisioso!
