Wonderful and fun cooking lesson
Sep 2020
Amy, all I can say is you are a very special person to allow us into your home and cook! We came September after not being able to travel due to the travel restrictions and so glad we were able to book this cooking experience.

We had a fantastic time and the four of us enjoyed making, cooking and eating the amazing ravioli and gnocchi and panna cotta - helped along with the prosecco and limoncello! You are a fab host and would highly recommend to all that visit lake Como

Also we have made pasta since we arrived home thanks to you.

Refined host, great food and wonderful home

We made the best gnocchis with pesto ever: light and tasty. Amy was very knowledgeable about Italian food and also fun to be with. She hosts her classes in her beautiful home decorated with a lot of taste. Worth the experience!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G cooking class, super friendly!
Aug 2019 • Couples
My husband booked the class for us as a gift for my bday.
We came from TX and were only 2, so we were joined in with a family from NJ. Super friendly and nice family of 6 adults.
We started at 9:30am learning and preparing all sorts of pasta: tagliatteli, ravioli, gnoqui and dessert: panna cota.
All of us participated and practiced all!
Amy was amazing, she is so smart, friendly and supportive.
We have lunch, dessert and drinks.
We loved the experience!

The highlight of our entire trip to Europe
Jul 2019 • Family
Our day with Amy was the highlight of our entire five week trip to Europe. Amy is a masterful conversationalist, with an engaging and fun personality, and a unique perspective as an American expat who has lived in Italy 15 years. She warmly welcomed us into her gorgeous home (with air-conditioning!) and extended generous hospitality throughout our entire lesson. We learned how to make delicious gnocchi, ravioli, tortelloni, tagliatelle, and panna cotta, and then got to eat our hard work during a lovely lunch (with wine) in her beautiful dining room. We felt privileged to have had this experience. Thank you, Amy!

One of the highlights of our trip
May 2019 • Friends
Like everybody else has said, this was a really fun day. Yes, we made ravioli and drank lots of wine at lunch, but the highlight for me was Amy's personality. As an American who has lived in Italy for years, she could explain Italian culture to us. And she was really funny. She started the event by having everyone introduce themselves and tell a little about their lives, which puzzled me at first since it was a cooking class. But by the end of lunch we had all made connections with places we've been and things we'd done, and Amy had us laughing the whole time. Book early, since she holds the classes in her apartment.

Amazing birthday bash experience with Amy in Como
May 2019 • Friends
Amy gave me one of my most memorable birthday experience. This was not just a pasta making session , it was one filled with lots of team work , laughter and meeting new friends too . A visit to Como on our birthday weekend ( Masha & I) has turned into a lovely surprise with Amy inspiring us to to make pasta from scratch and thank you to our friend Char who is a local now for setting this up. Amy put us at ease ( the wine helped too ) and was so engaging and funny. She is patiently answered all our questions including some off the topic content of making pizza too 😂. Thank you Amy for a memorable birthday bash in wonderful Como.

Real privilege
May 2019 • Friends
It was such a privilege to have the opportunity to be part of one of Amy’s cookery classes with a group of friends. One of our friends arranged the class which was a wonderful surprise especially as I love ravioli and always thought it was beyond my cooking capabilities. To my delight Amy made it not only easy but loads of fun. We were all very hands on which added to the occasion. Amy and her family were lovely and it was all the more special being in such beautiful surroundings of their home.

Great experience!
May 2019 • Friends
We were a group of 12 people and it was a great experience! Amy welcomed us in her beautiful and spacious home and then for the next few hours she taught us to make ravioli and gnocchi with Panna Cotta for dessert.

Everything was extremely planned in detail and you can really tell that Amy has carefully thought about the process to make sure the whole experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Another great and perhaps what makes the experience what it is, is how social and personable Amy is. You feel so at home in her apartment and she’s very easy going and fun to be around.

We had a great time and highly recommend Amy!
