I learnt how to make pasta by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... I spent my entire childhood making pasta with her!

Whenever I sat in my grandma's kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of her own mom and grandma. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: the handmade pasta techniques and traditions passed down through the ages. I learned everything from her, and decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.
Soon other grandmas around Italy joint our projects, sharing their pasta secrets!

Over three years, we've hosted more than 4,000 travelers in our kitchen (check our in-person experience at https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/55449).
Now we're launching our online experience...let's cook together!

Chiara and Nonna are great! Clearly both are knowledgeable and practiced in pasta making, and they were able to make the whole thing really accessible to a true beginner. They had us point the camera down at what we were doing at points so they could give us tips which I really appreciated. It was a lot of fun and super delicious!

Chairs and Nonna were lovely! They made sure everyone felt included and gave really specific advice to each of us as we progressed through the steps. Wonderful experience all around for both people who’ve made fresh pasta before and for people who haven’t.

My entire family and I had such a wonderful time. This was such a fun experience and a great way to have fun together but separately. Thank you!

Such a wonderful experience! It’s warm, fun, and you walk away knowing how to make authentic pasta. I really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone looking for something new.

This was fantastic! The hosts were so engaging and sweet. Not only did they show us how to make pasta, they asked to see our pasta throughout the class so they could make sure we weren't having any issues. Highly recommend!

Super fun experience. Make sure you have enough counter space and an extra pair of hands for the dough making time! Also, if you make the cavatelli, don't add too much water! It really is a super small amount.
