Alice and Elena team up to provide a Italian experience from your home. They are both extremely knowledgeable and fun! I have taken tours with Alice in Parma—highly recommend this when we can return again to Italy. This is the third cooking class I have taken via Instagram and now zoom. Just sign up and then day before class she will send you the link. Just click the link...and you can pretend to be back in Parma...ahhh. Alice also has done fabulous city tours of Parma which houses my favorite cathedral in Italy .. these also very fun via distance, Alice is a very engaging person! A prestò

We had an incredible day with our guide, Alice. She has studied Food & Wine and is incredible knowledgeable. But the real value came from her incredible capability to explain the science behind the cheese and ham making in a way that will get you even more excited about the product, rather than distracting you from the end product. Moreover, ask her anything. I wanted to know everything from the people behind the scenes, chemical processes and statistical figures on the market. She knew it all. It was fantastic and we thank you a lot!

Alice (Alle-chay) and Elena were fantastic! They have so much joy while they are cooking it's contagious. My 16 year old daughter and I were very capable of keeping up with the live class via Instagram. Ingredients and menu were sent to us prior to the class so we could be fully prepared. Our first encounter with Alice was on an all day tour of Parma while vacationing there three years ago. She is so knowledgeable and personable we felt like we were instantly her friends. Do not hesitate to join her for any and all of these experiences.

We have taken two live cooking classes with Elena and Alice so far and will definitely sign up for more! The class is scheduled for an hour, but plan to go longer, which is fine by us! We have made so many delicious dishes that we have already made on our own since the class. We will be making the pasta for friends this coming weekend. All the food is excellent for a family meal or gathering with friends. The best part is feeling part of the camaraderie in the kitchen. Elena and Alice have a great rapport. Elena is clearly an accomplished cook. She makes everything seem easy, even as we are rushing around to keep up! How does she do it? Alice makes sure we see all the action and get our questions answered. She makes a cocktail partway through class which is a great time for us to catch up! Seeing the questions from our fellow cooks throughout the US and Canada (so far) reminds us we are all connected. Seeing their creations and gardens (hi Sacramento!) at the end of class is a treat. Advice if you are going to take this class: Get a digital scale and measure out all your ingredients before class! Quantities are given by weight (e.g. 500g of flour, not 3.5 Cups or whatever). Since the attendees could be from anywhere this is the most universal way for them to list ingredients. Digital scales are not expensive and they are great to have in the kitchen.

This is our second cooking class with Alice and Elena. The class takes place in right in Elana's bed and breakfast kitchen. They both really love what they do and you can't help but get excited about learning from them. Both meals have been a huge success with friends and family. The Instagram live lets you ask questions when needed so it is like you are standing across the table when she is preparing the meal. It's very simple as well. Just sign up on line, Alice will get you the ingredients a couple days in advance, then get ready to cook. Remember, it is Italy time so make sure you know the time zone difference.
