What you'll do
I make handmade pasta since I was little. I still remember the weekends spent in the kitchen with my Grandma pulling the dough, with the room full of smell of ragù, slowly cooking on the fire. This is what me and Pia want to share with you! Firstly, we'll have a coffee and introduce ourselves. Then, the action will start! We will follow together the teaching of Pia: starting from ragù bolognese, dough preparation, and finishing doing tortelloni, tagliatelle with ragù and ravioli (the menu may vary, for any request please ask). We will also prepare a delicious dessert. In the meantime we'll have a quick appetizer with some local wine and typical food. You will discover all the secrets behind these traditional dishes that make Bologna famous all over the world, learning them directly from who holds them since generations. We will provide you with a notebook containing the recipes, where you can write down the key steps in the preparation and bring the learning back with you. The cooking part will last around 2-3 hours. Then we will eat all together the food we prepared in a wonderful location, in the Bolognese province immersed in the green.

Pia is a traditional Bolognese “sfoglina” (dough maker), that worked for more than 40 years in local restaurants, preparing Lasagne and Tagliatelle. Pia holds the secrets of the typical Emilian cuisine passed on from generation to generation. Emilia is the region where Tagliatelle, Tortelloni, Lasagne alla Bolognese and much more were invented. I’m Vittoria, a mother of three sons with more than 35 years of experience and passion in cooking for my family and the people I love. We want you to feel like at home, cooking together as if you were part of our big family! In some of the dates Pia won't be available but there will be Auntie Gianna, whose family used to run several restaurants in Modena and province.
