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!

Nonna and Chiara were absolutely amazing! The experience was beyond our groups expectation. They went above and beyond to ensure everyone felt connected to the experience, to them and most importantly to one another. I can’t wait to sign up for my next class with them! Thank you so much Nonna and Chiara!

We enjoyed ourselves while learning how to make homemade pasta and sauce with our new friends from Italy! Easy to follow instructions, cheerful and entertaining hostesses. Plenty of food on the table after class!

We did this for my friends 30th birthday and it was such a hit! I would recommend preparing any chopped veggies ahead of time as we had trouble keeping up at first. It’s a great way to spend an evening and the food was delicious!!

I absolutely loved cooking lasagne with Chiara and Nonna for this virtual experience. Two friends and I did a private session with them and we loved every second. Our lasagne turned out great! The instructions were thorough, the video and sound quality was excellent, and I was surprised at how quickly we were able to make everything.

This was a ton of fun! The authentic Italian kitchen and Grandma who only spoke Italian, with Chiara interpreting here and there was so perfect! Sound was great, the camera set up was perfect and the interaction was perfection. If you are on the fence about booking Pasta with the Grandmas, just do it!! You won't regret it.

This was such an incredible experience! I had never had gnocchi before and to make it from scratch made it even more delicious. Chiara and Nonna were great hosts, were very engaged, enthusiastic, and ensured our entire group was taken care of! This experience being virtual did not take away from the bond we had with one another as well with the our group. I cannot wait to attend another experience soon.
