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

My wife and I sent an afternoon taking a cooking lesson on how to make PERFECT PASTA. The school facilities are top-notch and the staff are so talented. In short time the entire group had made our 1st batch of real home-made pasta. Later that night the entire group had a dinner at the school. The meal they served was... More

The demonstration of their cooking preparation was serious and open. The cooking materials were well prepared and easily understood. The teaching area is ideally assigned for a group of 24 people in our case or more. The foods made by us were also cooked and served for our group making us feel proud of ourselves. Their hospitality was unexpectedly gracious... More

We had a lovely time with Carlo and really enjoyed our cooking class. We booked this towards the end of our time in Italy and it was the perfect end to our trip. It was very nice to enjoy the wonderful meal we made while talking with our other classmates.
