I learned how to make pasta since I was really young by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... she is the true host and the true protagonist of this story.

She lived her childhood during the second world war, her mum taught her how to feed children with just 2 ingredients: eggs and flour.
Whenever I sat in her kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of that time. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: not just the handmade pasta technique but an entire tradition passed down through the ages.
I decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.

Over three years, we've hosted more than 5,000 travelers in our kitchen.

And soon other grandmas in our small village decided to be part of this crazy project!

Nonna Angela, Nonna Gio, Nonna Lalla, Nonna Marghe, Nonna Renzia are waiting for you, amore!

What a wonderful experience! Chiara and Nonna were total pros! We did this as a company event with out 20 of us. The hosts were super fun, engaging, supportive, and hilarious the whole time. They gave tons of personal attention to each member of the event, and literally all 20 of us ended up with a delicious bowl of pasta at the end of it. Highly recommend doing one of their cooking events. It's likely our company will do several more in the future for some fun team building experiences.

My mom and I did a virtual cooking class together for an early Mother’s Day present and had the best time! Neither of us had ever made pasta from scratch before, and by the end we had a fab bowl of fettuccini. Would definitely recommend!

Such a wonderful experience - it's like you're in rural Italy with Giada and her Nonna as they instruct you how to make a delicious meal! The gnocchi and pesto were amazing and so fun to make with them!

Nonna and Chiara are great! I loved their enthusiasm and efforts to really connect with my friends and I as we celebrate the April birthdays in our friend group. They were also very encouraging and gave some great tips especially since it was many of our first times making pasta from scratch. Was an awesome cooking class even though it was virtual. Would definitely recommend and take another class!

Loved this experience! I received it as a gift from my college friends and really enjoyed it! I wasn’t sure how a virtual cooking session would be, but they really did a fantastic job! I loved the fettuccine ragu that we made! It was so delicious!!! The camera work was great too! It wasn’t difficult to follow along. I would highly recommend this for a group activity or even a date night! I just wish it was in person so I could eat Nonna’s pasta!!
