Elisabetta and Nonna were such sweet hosts. Their different personalities really shined well together. It was really nice to hear about their town and their family's cooking traditions. They were really good at managing our 8-person group who did this class together from 4 different time zones. They checked in with each of us at each step in the pasta-making process to ensure we stayed on track and had all of our questions answered. The food was great! I had never made pasta before and now I feel confident enough to keep doing it.
Learning how to cook with Chiara and Nonna is an amazing experience because they add a bit of fun every step of the way! They make cooking exciting and joyful, and you really feel proud of what you’ve made. I am not a great cook, but they somehow managed to teach me how to make something delicious by the end of it. Thank you both!!
Chiara & Nonna conducted an awesome experience for my team as we had signed up for their gnocchi pasta making experience!
It was very well planned and I enjoyed walking through the experience! They were so fun throughout the whole process and made it really enjoyable. Our team got to share pictures of our end product with one another to see how we all did at the end!
I knew making gnocchi was difficult but having them guide me through it made it an enjoyable time!
If you're even contemplating this experience, just SIGN UP! It's so fun and so personal with some very happy and engaged hosts on the other end. We had a blast making Cacio e Pepe with hand-cut tagliolini. We really had an amazing time learning something new and connecting with these 2 wonderful ladies across the ocean. Thank you!!
Nonna and Chiara did a wonderful job engaging with us during the class and teaching us. I love to cook and I feel like I actually learned something. I would 100% take another class from them again! I had so much fun!
We had the BEST time making pasta with Chiara and Nonna. We were blown away by how quickly they felt like old friends. We did a private gathering for just four close girlfriends and so it felt super personal and intimate - and helped lessen the distance between all of us.
I honestly can't think of a thing that would have made the experience better - it was magical. Incredible pasta, easy instructions, and lovely hosts.
Best airbnb experience I have done! We did it with my team at work and they all loved it. I never thought I could make pasta so easily. Communication, story, camera quality everything was perfect. And our hosts were super cute and funny! We were 7 and they were able to guide everyone. Delicious hame cooked pasta :)
Nonna and Elisabeth are wonderful hosts! They were super accommodating and accepted special requests, we made pumpkin ravioli to keep with the season. They were super super sweet, patient and friendly. Elisabeth did a great job to set the scene, she was immensely friendly and got all of our team members to participate! They even accommodated gluten free requests and helped our team mate who was struggling. Amazing story telling and super family friendly. We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. Our team rated this as one of the best team m building fun activities we had participated in. Thank you lovely Nonna and elisabeth!
We booked this experience as a surprise for my mom's birthday. Her friends tuned in and we started the class with the warmest welcome and "Happy Birthday!" It really was so special and I could not have asked for more in terms of a great group experience, such lovely hosts, and we all walked away feeling confident in our pasta skills! Would absolutely recommend.
Chiara and Nonna were simply awesome. We did a private session for around 12 people and we were all in the same location. They are super flexible in terms of the type of pasta you want to make. We picked Tagliolini cacio e pepe.
They were super patient with us even though he kept talking to each other. They have such wonderful personas and they kept cracking jokes or telling us about their life in Italy.
Their instructions for making the pasta were simple yet accurate. If we did something wrong they would help us get back on track with a smile.
The fresh pasta tasted amazing and paired great with their wine recommendation.
We all had a wonderful time and would definitely try it out again.
The perfect Saturday afternoon date! My boyfriend gifted this to me as a Christmas present and it was perfect! We learned how to make ravioli and were able to interact with everyone on the call! The whole experience is very well done and professional. I hope to have this experience with them one day in person! They were able to provide substitute ingredients as well!
I went to this as part of a work event/celebration and it was a blast! I felt like I actually learned how to make pasta, the dish was delicious, and the hosts were amazing! I'm thinking about doing it again with my mother and mother-in-law since they would love it as well.
This was SO fun and easy and educational. I manage a remote team with folks all over the US. Chiara and Nonna made the set up super easy. Once we signed onto the zoom, they were so charming and engaging. We laughed, learned, and ate. Would recommend this to any group.
We had a great time! My work team joined the zoom easily from different countries. The preperation list was very clear so we were all prepared. The instructions were easy to follow and even our "mistakes" turned into successes. We loved how interactive the discussion was. Not only did we learn how to make DELICIOUS pasta (I'm stuffed!) but we learned more about each other. Thank you!!
I was dreading this team activity... cooking just isn't my jam. But this was a HOOT! And wow did it turn out unbelievable... who'd have thought a ham-fisted guy like me could make better pasta than you can buy in the store?!?
