If on your trip to Bologna you feel the desire to totally immerse yourself in the local culinary culture, you are in the right place, welcome to Grazia's kitchen! I offer a cooking lesson which includes the preparation of two types of fresh egg pasta, with two different typical condiments, including Bolognese ragù.

When everything is ready we will sit at the table set with my grandmother's tablecloths, you will taste the freshly prepared dishes according to homemade recipes. Local wine, water and coffee, surprise desserts. Possibility of vegetarian menu on request and many news on the history of food and a small recipe book will be sent by email to be able to cook at home for your friends

Best experience ever

I met a wonderful host in Bologna and we were both allowed to do what we love: pasta. Standing together in the kitchen, cooking, learning and chatting is so wonderful. I am so incredibly grateful that Grazia has given me this opportunity in the current situation. (For the photo without a mask). Get to know a country and the people in which you cook and eat with them. Don‘t fear alone. Try now, it is safe and you will be amazed. Grazia is a warm welcoming person. There was spinach tagliatelle with ragù alla bolognese and ricotta tortellini with family recipe pesto for my. Grazia offers variations like your taste. And on top you get Brudchetta, Dolci and Vino 😁
