Our cooking experience with Paola was amazing, great fun and a wonderful experience. Paola took us to the market and showed us some of the stalls and items on offer. I loved the salumeria: all the wonderful meats, salamis and cheeses, and the smell - wonderful! Back at Paola's house we enjoyed a little drink and some snacks before getting down to the serious business of making dinner. We made pasta, the proper way and the filling for our ravioli. Paola was very kind, helpful and patient; showing me how to make her delicious tiramisu. We had quite a production line going as we made the ravioli! I was amazed at the simplicity of the sauce for the pasta, just tomatoes and garlic left to simmer. Delicious bruschetti with salami, cheese and delicious panzerotti started our meal. The ravioli was fantastic and my husband dived in for a second helping! Paola's tiramisu was just fabulous, so creamy and just the right amount of coffee and chocolate. All served with lovely Chianti and a refreshing Prosecco. The evening came to a close with a glass of Paola's homemade limoncello - delicious! We had a super evening with lovely people, our new Italian friends! My fairly basic Italian was stretched to the limit but the challenge was fun and expressing our delight with the food didn't really require words! I would thoroughly recommend this experience and given the opportunity we'd do it again, it was our best day in Italy!
