Lidia was excited to host us and we were excited to learn. We were two adults and two children under 10 years old. It can be a bit odd to be in a strangers home but she made us feel welcome. We look forward to making our own pasta at home.

Great experience in Bologna! At first it feels strange to go into a foreign kitchen, but Antonio is a great cook, with his own restaurant in the area and a lot of experience and he provides all the recipes. A clear recommendation for everyone who wants to try something new to learn something!

Antonio, een typisch Italiaanse man en tevens een goede chef met zijn eigen restaurant, leert je de fijne kneepjes van het pasta maken. Hij verteld vol passie over zijn werk en leert je wat handige “Italiaanse” trucs om beter te koken. Zijn engels is goed en je kunt goede gesprekken met hem voeren. Daarnaast heeft deze chef humor en is erg enthousiast!
