I learnt how to make pasta by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... I spent my entire childhood making pasta with her!

Whenever I sat in my grandma's kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her own mom and grandma. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: the handmade pasta techniques and traditions passed down through the ages. I learned everything from her, and decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.
Soon other grandmas around Italy joint our projects, sharing their pasta secrets!

Over three years, we've hosted more than 4,000 travelers in our kitchen (check our in-person experience at https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/55449).
Now we're launching our online experience...let's cook together!

Do it. Book it. Don’t wait or carry on browsing book it. This is a fantastic experience. We learnt how to make Gnocchi which they took us through step by step and we did it! :-)

Chiara was an excellent teacher who took the time to repeat a few steps to make sure I knew how to fold pasta correctly before cutting it. We were thousands of miles away but she felt present in my kitchen.

This was a lot of fun, and a great way to get into making your own pasta. Chiara and Nonna did an amazing job helping you along the way, and were experts in providing the right camera angle to follow along. Very knowledgeable, and caring! Highly recommend for a fun family activity, or just a new take on cooking a meal at home.

We had such a wonderful time! They paid special attention to our dough making skills and made sure we weren't falling behind. Everyone had an opportunity to give feedback, alert them if they were having trouble with the particular step, or need more instruction. It was such a unique experience, especially during the pandemic, to feel as if you could leave your kitchen and visit another time and place.

I would highly recommend this experience. The hosts were very sweet and helpful. The lesson seemed very authentic, and the food we made was delicious. Our group had a lot of fun, and I would happily do this again.
