    Great cooking class
    Our family took a cooking class with Pietro and Michelle in August 2023 and it was awesome!! Three courses of delicious pasta made under their expert tutelage. They made the evening so casual and fun and we left very full and very happy! Highly recommend.

    Italy vacation highlight
    We had a great time during our private pasta making class with Pietro. So much fun learning how to make 3 delicious pasta dishes: Ravioli, Bolognese Tagliatella and Tortelloni. Pietro was extremely patient and helpful. We would highly recommend this class for a couple or a group.

    Cooking tour and class in Bologna
    We had a fantastic time! Pietro walked us through the city market, explaining in detail the importance of different ingredients and their influence on the desired outcome of dish being made. We also walked through the city center and learned about the history of the public market. In the kitchen we created dishes that were delicious and he was very accommodating and patient helping my 9 yr old fully participate as well. Would definitely recommend if you visit the area.

    Amazing and memorable cooking class in Bologna
    My mother and I did a cooking class with Barbara and we learnt to make traditional Tagliatelle bolognese ragu, tortelloni (parsley, ricotta and parmesan) in sage butter and tiramisu! It was my favourite Italian cooking class in a beautiful setting. Barbara was so lovely and friendly we had such an amazing time. The food was so delicious as well !!!

    I’d go back again and again!!!
    Il Salotto di Penelope with Michelle as my instructor was phenomenal. This review is long overdue so I apologize. Michelle made me feel welcome, and like a friend who came to cook dinner together not a student or tourist. She is ridiculously knowledgeable and a joy to be around. My husband and I even took her for dinner that evening to a restaurant she recommended, and had the best lassos our lives. We will DEFINITELY give her a call next time we are in Bologna. Thank you so much Michelle!

    The art of pasta making
    My colleagues and I had a fantastic morning/afternoon with Michelle as she taught us how to make 3 types of pasta and of course the sauce/ragu to pair. I've taken a few classes on making pasta and Michelle was the superior instructor. I highly recommend taking this class if you want to learn the art of pasta-- especially in Bologna.

    A great morning with Michelle!
    My colleagues and I did a four-hour cooking class with Michelle. It was hands-on and authentic and Michelle was a fun and patient teacher. There were lots of laughs, but at the same time, there was a focus on learning techniques to make the food correctly. It was hands-on, we didn't just sit back and watch her do it for us. There were little breaks for wine and chat and the time flew by. The food was delicious! Highly recommend!

I've always thought pasta making was too much trouble, but after Michelle's class today I'm itching to get home and keep making more pasta!

Not only was it a very hands on class with lots of tips and tricks along the way, but we had the opportunity to enjoy our freshly made pasta with a glass of wine not long after.

Highly recommended.
