My mom and I loved cooking with Grazia! Once we got back home we immediately bought a pasta roller and put to use the e-cookbook Grazia sent after the lesson. We are addicted to her recipe for tortelloni with butter and sage sauce. Thank you for the wisdom, Grazia. We will surely put our skills to use for years to come! - Madison & Jolene

Grazia was so welcoming and made us all feel comfortable. She taught us at our own speed and gave guidance along the way. The food was so delicious! She was also flexible as we arrived a bit late being stuck in traffic. Her place is a bit outside the main city center and the entrance is not obvious, but Grazia was very communicative via WhatsApp and came down to meet us at the street. Absolutely would recommend.

My partner and I had such a wonderful experience in Grazia’s home! It was my partners first cooking class and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Grazia is so welcoming and helpful. The food was delicious but the company was even better. Will definitely be returning the next time I visit Bolonga.

Grazia was a beautiful hostess and teacher. She delights in others making memories. She puts her heart into her cooking and her guests. I learned immediately from her ways that will make me a more effective cook by attending to the small details. My mother and I plan to buy pasta machines as soon as we get home. The recipes she chose to teach us was incredible, tortellini and pasta bolognese. I'm sure it was her special family recipes (which she shares) and the freshness of the homemade pasta. This was truly the highlight of our trip. To be invited into someone's home is a special gift. Thank you Grazia.

My partner and I had an amazing evening cooking and eating with Grazia. It was an honour to enjoy a home cooked meal and share stories of culture, language and tradition with such a sweet person. It's rare to have such an honest and real experience while traveling abroad and I couldn't recommend her class highly enough!

A lovely time making pasta
Sucharitha_Y

I had the best time learning how to make pasta with Grazia. She taught us how to make two types - a stuffed tortelli and a tagliatelle - and while we worked we got to hear stories about her life, the history and culture of Bologna, + cooking tricks and tips. Post-pasta making we sat down to share a beautiful lunch together (Grazia provided the most amazing wine and dessert to complement). Overall, the entire experience was warm and joyous and gave me a great memory in addition to firsthand knowledge of how to make pasta. Super highly recommend (especially if you're traveling solo like I was). Thank you for sharing so generously, Grazia!

Fun, informative, and delicious pasta making class

Grazia was very welcoming to her house, and upon arrival she offered us some coffee. She thoroughly explained how Bologna became to be known as Italy's food center and the history of pasta in Italy. She guided us through making the pasta from scratch, making it easy to mix, roll, and shape the pasta. However, I do wish she demonstrated more during each step of the process, especially when shaping the tortellini. It would also been valuable if she had us help her cook the pasta and the sauce. Nonetheless, the class was very informative and enjoyable, and the pasta and dessert tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to learn the traditional way of making pasta.

We absolutely loved our time with Grazia. She is a great teacher who clearly loves sharing her craft! We felt so welcomed and at home that we didn’t feel like strangers at all. She is kind, patient, and has a great sense of humor! The meal we prepared with Grazia was the best we had in all of Italy (seriously!) and the dessert she served was out of this world. We couldn’t stop thinking about the pasta and bolognese sauce, so we made our own batch just days after returning home to Maryland. Bologna is a special city, and if you visit, you must make time to cook with Grazia! Gracie mille Grazia!

We LOVED our cooking class with Grazia! We learned a lot about the history and culture of pasta as well as made our own pasta for lunch. Grazia is delightful, knowledgeable and made our cooking experience fun, educational, and delicious. She graciously shared her recipes…now we can make our own pasta when we return home!

I had an amazing and fun time making homemade tagliatelle and tortellini with my new friend Grazia! Her joyful personality shines into the beautiful dishes she teaches. She makes you feel so welcome in her home and offered us bruschetta, wine and sparkling water. She is true Bolognese! If ever in Bologna, you must take her class!

Learning authentic Bolognese pasta making with Grazia was a real highlight of our family trip to Northern Italy. After cathedrals, monuments and museums, it was a wonderful break to spend time with Grazia in her home learning about local cuisine, cooking and customs. Grazia welcomed our family with open arms, and showed me, my wife and our two teenage sons how to make authentic Bolognese tagliatelle and tortelloni. Everything done with great care and genuine love. As she instructed us, we learned a lot about regional differences in cooking and day in and day out customs of the Bolognese. Grazia showed us not only how to make the pasta, but how to serve it with authentic Bolognese sauce (the tagliatelle) and a wonderful sage butter sauce (the tortelloni). Together we enjoyed a terrific homemade lunch, with local wine, our own pasta creations, and great conversation. After lunch, Grazia served a refreshing marscapone and peach dessert with limoncello. A marvelous way to take a break and get a real taste of Bolognese hospitality cooking and culture. Highly recommended!!
