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!

Une expérience à ne pas manquer... n'hésitez pas, allez-y ! Vous découvrirez la véritable recette des pâtes à l'italienne, ainsi que des sauces à tomber. Francesca est plus qu'une hôte ; elle vous accueillera à bras ouvert au centre de Côme, et vous vous sentirez tout de suite à l'aise. Nous avons passé une formidable après-midi en sa compagnie et nous avons vraiment hâte de pouvoir tester les recettes de retour chez nous. Un seul conseil : foncez ! réservez votre cours !

Super, personal and fun cooking course with a great hostess. Francesca made us feel welcome and added cute details to the experience. The food we cooked was just amazing, especially the gnocchi with pesto Genovese. This is something we will carry with us from Italy. I recommend this to everyone.

This was so much fun! Francesca really welcomes you into her home, you’re an active participant in the pasta making process. While the pasta sits in the fridge we have Prosecco with aperitivos to enjoy. Had a great engaging conversation with Francesca and the other attendees. Then the sauces are made and we dine on the fruits of our labor. Definitely would recommend!
