My husband and I took a half-day cooking class with big Carlo, Adriana, and Gabriella. It was a great experience where we got to make and subsequently devour the best pasta we've ever tasted. First off, Carlo took us on a market tour where we tasted local products-- cheeses, prosciutto, and coffee. We then arrived at Carlo's place, where we... More

This was the best experience and the best money spent on our 15 day, 6 city tour of Europe. Mother and father celebrating 25th anniversary with 21 yr old daughter in tow. Started in the market with a leisurely walk and talk as we picked up supplies and tasted cheeses and meats prepared locally. Carlone Talozzi was our host and... More

I travelled to Bologna solely to learn all about the crusine of the region with the Bologna Cooking School, diverting our travels to do so. I wish I had read more of the reviews and understood what was really on offer. Carlo had very very limited English and does not understand questions. I enrolled for a half day market tour... More

We had a truly unique experience in Bologna. Carlo, Gabriella, and Luciana can really pass on their passion for Italian cooking and it was great to learn the traditional way of preparing pasta and ragù while listening to anecdotes and drinking local wine. We learned a lot that we have brought back to our home kitchen and we will, for... More

We loved cooking with Carlo, Gabriella, Anna, and Luciana. They all wore their passion for food on their sleeves, and were a pleasure to spend time with from the moment we met in the market till we left Carlo's apartment full of delicious food and wine, feeling much wiser about Italian cuisine.

We took in a class on our visit to Bologna and it proved to be the highlight, and given the competition in that great city that is quite an achievement. As expected the cooking class was excellent but sourcing the produce really added to the experience. As others have said the team were brilliant and good fun. Make the time... More

We are a group of 40+ mums who decided on a long weekend in Bologna and it was suggested we might like to do a cookery class. This was such a brilliant experience. We went to the Bologna Cooking School which is based inside Carlo's home. It is authentic hands-on Italian pasta and sauce making. It's fun and informative and... More

We did the pasta making course and had a great time. Carlo was not only a great cook but a consummate host. We also took advantage of his bed and breakfast and stayed on after the lesson. Very reasonable rates and no worries about getting back to separate accommodation in the evening. Breakfast was also great, with a chef meeting... More

My wife took a full day cooking class with Chef Carlo and his staff. I tagged along for the shopping and the the eating parts. We started out with a two hour plus walking tour of the old town market area. We picked out the choicest products at his favorite stands. Chef Carlo explained what he was looking for as... More

We had a group of adults and teens and everyone had a great time. Carlo met us at the train station and took us on a market tour as we purchased ingredients for the day. We saw and learned so much about the city from Carlo as we walked. It was like we got two tours in one! We arrived... More
