Italians keep jealously their secret fresh handmade pasta's recipe, they learned as child by their grandmother and mother: but as you know there are exceptions to every rule.
We are two professional cooks and we love hosting people at our home restaurant, La Picà dell'Isola. We would like to share with you all professional secrets about making fresh pasta. We will learn together how to make fresh vegetarian ravioli with ricotta cheese and spinach, and then how to make and cook a wonderful, tasteful lasagna*, cooking together with besciamella sauce and making the fresh pesto together.
We will conclude our lesson learning how to prepare fresh Tiramisù and then we can have lunch/dinner together.
* As we use just organic ingredients, we propose you during spring and summer to make ravioli and lasagna with fresh vegetables and basil; anyway if you prefer we offer you as an option Lasagna alla Bolognese, with ragù sauce (with organic meat) instead of making pesto together.
Our apartment is in a Art Nouveau building with a wonderful courtyards, you will feel the real Milanese atmosphere!
We live with our small dog, Lucky: he would be happy to see you, too, and he's going to stay in a room apart before and during the dinner. We just hope you don't suffer any allergy.
We had a great experience in Chiara & Gigio's home. It was very homey and we felt like we got the true Italian experience. The food was great and my sister has made some of the items and they turned out great. We are looking for the recipe for the ravioli as we can't find it, so if you could send it we would appreciate it.
This was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We had a wonderful time at Chiara and Gigio's house learning to make lasagne and enjoying the results. They were excellent hosts, and made us feel like friends.
Our visit to Milan wouldn’t have been complete without a visit with Chiara and Gigio. Not only did we learn how to make our own pasta, delicious lasagne and the best tiramisu ever, but we gained two new Italian friends. They shared their home, their culture and experience with us and we all came our winners. It really is a small world too, as the more we shared our stories, we learned that my husband and Gigio are from the same country, same city, and same neighborhood! We had a wonderful evening and our time was over before we knew it. I highly recommend spending and evening with Chiara and Gigio for a wonderful Italian experience, plus the bonus of gaining two new friends!
We spent a fabulous evening with Chiara and Gigio! They both welcomed my husband and i into their authentic italian apartment and were great hosts and chefs. After 3 hours of preparation, learning the art of REAL pasta making, stirring a beautiful bechamel sauce, great conversation and wine..we all sat together to enjoy the best lasange and tiramisu we have ever eaten. We had a very memorable experience and will certainly attempt to recreate these dishes at home! Thank you both!
Our dinner experience with Chiara and Gigio was absolutely incredible! It was held in their cute Italian apartment, where we proceeded to make tiramisu, ravioli, and a lovely summer lasagna. The evening was a perfect balance of showing us how to make certain elements, giving us hands on experience to make it our selves (we loved using the pasta maker!), and providing tricks/tips along the way for when we attempt to recreate the dishes at home ourselves. Chiara and Gigio were both fantastic hosts and created a truly special evening for my mom and I that we will remember for a long time. Both of us highly recommend this experience - it will definitely become a highlight of your Milan trip!
