What you'll do

PLEASE NOTE: Minimum amount of people for a booking is two. If you would like to book just one spot, please ask me if there's other bookings for your preferred date(s) so I can fit you in.
Our cooking course will take place in my home, a cozy apartment in the center of Naples with a spacious terrace. We'll learn about the history of pasta, its different shapes and sizes, and when to use which one. We'll then get our hands dirty; everyone gets to make their own portion of pasta for the lunch! We'll enjoy an appetizer while the dough is resting, and then get back to work. I'll help and guide you through making your own fresh pasta by demonstrating and giving tips. You'll learn how to make hand-cut pasta as well as making pasta with the help of a hand powered machine. When we've all finished making our pasta, I'll prepare our meal with it and we'll sit down together to enjoy lunch with a glass of wine.
My dates are flexible - if your preferred date is not on the calendar, just ask me!
Depending on which type of pasta we're making, the duration of this course may vary. I'll ask you for your preferences and availability.

Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Michelle, and after years of experience as a cook in Belgium and The Netherlands, I finally followed my dream of moving to Italy. I'm very happy to be able to continue my passion for food here, and I'm very excited to share it with people who choose to visit my new home city. Becoming a tour guide here has helped me gain a lot of insight into Neapolitan culture and history, and through my constant search for new recipes I've learned to master the Italian and local cuisine.

Weather permitting, we can enjoy our meal out on the terrace with a view on the Vesuvius. When the course is finished, I can walk you back to our meeting point, to the nearest metro station, or give you directions or call a taxi for you.

We had a great time cooking with Michelle! We could actively participate, and we learn some new uncommon but traditional recipes, as well as some tricks:) Food was great, and the location has a special Neapolitan vibe. Recommend!

The pasta making class was amazing and we had a great time with Michelle. She is super nice and does a great job. We made a very tasty 3 course menu with our personal wish (gnocchi) as a main course. We learned a lot and really enjoyed our lunch in the sun on her beautiful terrace in the middle of Naples.

The experience with Michelle was heart-warming... she was charming, welcoming and super nice. I went with my sister and we loved absolutely everything from beginning to end. The food was DELICIOUS, she uses simple techniques yet makes you feel like a pro, we asked for a veggie meal and tiramisu and she gladly accepted, she gave us tips for other recipes and suggestions on other ingredients we could use to replace the originals when we come back to our country. The kitchen where we cooked was really beautiful, comfy and you could really feel the homie vibe. We would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who goes to Napoli, you will feel right at home cooking with a friend who's teaching you lots of things. This was our first Airbnb experience and she absolutely set the bar high. Hope to be back soon and cook again with Michelle and try a tour out with her too!

Awesome experience. Booked the experience for father and son activity. Son is usually moody but he lit up and absolutely loved the experience. He became quite chatty with the host. He want to do it again. He was able to fully appreciate the pasta and want us to make it when we get home. Host was quite easy to chat with and she was quite knowledgeable with all pasta. She clearly enjoyed it. This is a great class for kids 10 years and above with parents. My son plan to write about his experience when he returns to school tomorrow.
