I have been offering market-to-table classes since 1999 and love to share my knowledge of the wonderful produce and products in the market, and of the gastronomic and social history behind the dishes we make. It's not just about the recipes, though you get plenty of cooking and presentation tips. The classes are hands-on cooking for one person or in tiny little groups of 2, 3 or 4 at most (but up to 6 if family or friends travelling together and by the way I especially enjoy cooking with children.) It is all very relaxed, informal and enjoyable and I do my utmost to give you a memorable day and a great culinary experience. I teach all the classes personally and never run two groups at the same time! Take one class or several classes, as your time allows, and for groups of 4 or more, my customised 3 night residential classes in the countryside are a fun way to spend quality time together. I also offer shorter half day cooking classes, and an inexpensive budget class. And if your travelling partner/s don't fancy cooking, I offer a morning market food tour ending in a light lunch to introduce you to Bologna, its history and its food. Email me for more information and thanks for reading all of this! « less

Il primo ed unico bagno turco nel cuore di Bologna nasce dal sogno e dalla passione di Gabriella Ieri, che ha voluto portare fin qui la filosofia e la cultura dei bagni di vapore appresa durante i suoi lunghi viaggi tra Turchia, Tunisia e Marocco, interpretandola nelle originalissime forme e nei colori degli spazi che qui vi accoglieranno. Quello che vi aspetta e un vero e proprio viaggio nel benessere, scandito da rituali e fasi antichissime per vivere le quali e importante lasciarsi andare, senza pensare al tempo che scorre, ma ascoltando solo le sensazioni del proprio corpo. « less
