    For teens to octogenarians - Amy’s pasta making dinner was a hit!
    What a beautiful home, amazing host and chef, and delicious meal. Amy makes you feel so comfortable in her home, whether you are old or young, experienced or novice. Everything was delicious, fun, and surprisingly easy!!

    Home cooking for real!
    Our group met at Amy's lovely home. We were greeted with a smile and a glass of wine❤️ The cooking experience was intimate and very fun. We laughed and talked about our lives while we created three wonderful dishes. I'm so happy we chose to cook with Amy! We would do it again in an instant!

    Can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you Amy!
    Six of my family had the most extraordinary time with Amy early this July while traveling Europe. Amy welcomed us into her beautiful classic Italian home that was breathtaking and then we spent 4 hours learning to cook ravioli, gnocchi, panna cotta and tortellini. She was so personable, sweet and patient with all of us who had a combined knowledge of authentic Italian cooking of ZERO. Our cooking challenged husbands were totally invested and the non stop wine and Prosecco added to the evening. Can not rate this highly enough and will forever be one of our top memories.

Amazing way to spend our last evening in Italy. Amy and her family are wonderful hosts. Delicious gnocci/ravioli/panna cotta/wine. An unique experience definitely worth trying!

Amy hosts an amazing class where she teaches you all about different pasta making with an engaging and fun atmosphere. She is an excellent host and makes you feel at home in her stunning Italian apartment. The food was excellent, not to mention the wines, and coffee, with a lovely digestif to finish. Could not recommend more! A bargain at that price

What a fun experience and a lovely host! I couldn’t recommend her more. We cooked from scratch. Learned about Italian dining tradition and sampled several wines and “digestives” (cordials) after the meal. Excellent.

This class was fantastic. The apartment was beautiful and Amy is a great hostess. I felt like I had been invited to a dinner party and helped out with the cooking! Amy instantly makes you comfortable while sharing great culinary and regional knowledge. She’s funny, chatty and relaxed which helps the session seem very informal. Amy then served us the food we helped to create and joined us at the table in between to chat.

This is not something I would usually have thought about doing during a holiday but would return in an instant with friends to learn more. We were all googling pasta machines and ricers walking down the front steps as we were so keen to go home and try ourselves.

Great experience all round!

Amy is fantastic, so welcoming it was a perfect way to spend the day. We all had such fun! Amy is super friendly and accommodating. Her knowledge was fantastic- we learnt so much! The food was another level of delicious and it was great to share a couple of bottles of prosecco throughout the day. I'd highly recommend doing it for something a little different and truly authentic!

Amy and her family were very welcoming and accommodating to my family. I arrived with 3 children, ages 18 months, 9, and 15. She provided toys for my little one. And when things got stressful for me, she was understanding and patient. The food was excellent and instruction easy to follow. When we arrived home we purchased all the tools to recreate the dishes.
