ABOUT THEEXPERIENCE

Fancy spending some time in the comfort of a local's home, rolling out homemade pasta dough and filling your own ravioli? Then book a class with us as we show you firsthand how you can recreate this versatile plate at home for you and your loved ones.The sky's the limit to your choice of fillings and we'll give you an insight to traditional Italian recipes from various regions as a guide on how to customise your own. We'll be making a dessert together as well! Afterwards, if the weather permits we'll have a sit-down meal together in the garden, where Matteo just might strum some tunes live on his acoustic guitar. Who says cooking is our only passion?

Matteo and Nadia were great hosts and cooks! My 2 sons( 11 and 12 years old) and I had a wonderful time. Matteo shared few of his family secrets on how to make perfect ravioli and Tiramisu we made with Nadia was delicious. We then shared dinner together and had great conversations about travels, different cultures and music. Recommending it to anyone who wants some special memorable experience with the personal touch. Kids were very tired at the end of the day and Matteo and /Nadia gave us a ride to our hotel. Thanks!
