What you'll do

What's better than a spaghetti with tomato and basil?
Pasta is the symbol of Italy and in every Italian house, even mine, is the dish on the table every day. You would have eaten it many times but after our course you could say to your guest that you have cooked it!
The lesson will take place in the kitchen of my house where we will cook and eat the lunch with a good glass of wine!

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to change the recipe because alternatively we can cook pasta carbonara, pasta with pesto or fresh tomato, pasta garlic oil and chili, all'amatriciana or all'arrabbiata!

Hello! I'm Francesca and I'm Italian: a bit of the north and a bit of the south Italy. My passion for cooking began thanks to my mother and my grandmother who handed down love for cooking and the recipes typical of their land. My passion has then grown thanks to cooking classes and experimenting always new recipes for friends and family. My cooking is made of traditional recipes, accessible to everyone because they are prepared with the main ingredients: passion and love!

If I could give Francesca and the pasta making experience with her 10 stars, I absolutely would! It was so comfortable and Francesca puts so much thought, care and generosity in her class. We made carbonara and everyone of us in the group thought it was the best pasta we had in our trip. Grazie Mille Francesca!

We had a super time with Francesca, and so appreciate the time she spent with each member of our family (very naturally). We learned to make pasta, which we had no idea how to before, as well as the sauce. There were six of us that went, plus an infant. Members of our group each commented to me how much they enjoyed this experience. Francesca was so patient with us. What a great experience!

Great cooking class, loved the experience and atmosphere that Francesca created with her class. Food & drinks were fantastic, and interesting explanation of regions in Italy and the different foods they spefialise in.

What a lovely experience with Francesca in her home. She is so personable and knowledgeable about all things Italian! We loved hearing about learning from her grandmother and how she became passionate about pasta! She also told us a few local insider tips for our time in Como.
