I booked this cooking class as a present for my sister's birthday during our stay in Alghero. Irene, her family and friends, were all so welcoming and kind! It was such a fun day full of cooking, eating, sharing stories and getting to know one another. My sister and I both absolutely loved the experience and hope too come again the next time we are in Sardegna! :

I would 100 recommend taking this class, you will not be disappointed!

We had a great time learning how to make the various pasta from tagliatelle to raviolis. we tasted Igors' home produced wine which is excellent. we highly recommend this cooking class, its well worth the detour and the ambiance is casual and convivial.

My husband and I had a fantastic time learning how to make various pastas and about Sardinian culture. Our host family was warm and inviting. Their farmhouse is gorgeous. We toured their property including their small winery and sampled their delicious wine. This is an experience we will cherish!

This experience was everything and more. Irene was most welcoming and so were her dogs. It is a beautiful little spot in the Sardinian Countryside. We were able to make our own pasta, she showed us all of the steps and then we got to enjoy it along with many different appetizers that Irene and her brother prepared for us. It couldn't have been a more beautiful day and we were so lucky to have experienced such a day. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing dinner with Irene. She taught us how to create two types of pasta and a zucchini breading then served an amazing dinner on the patio by the pool. We also got to taste some of her homemade wine from the property. This was a highlight of our Sardinian Trip.

Wow.. what an amazing tour! Irene is a lovely and very friendly woman who speaks good English and makes you feel at home. You feel part of the 'family' for a short time. Very personal tour we were only with two!, which really is amazing and contributes to what you learn and experience. Lovely to hear something about how Irene came to live here and to see how she lives, that really adds to the whole experience.
You learn to make different kinds of pasta and different ravioli fillings, and also to make sweet ravioli as a dessert. After that, you eat some tempura vegetable snack with Irene and her husband which is really nice. And after that, it is time to enjoy different pasta dishes with some wine in the garden. Really: an amazing tour which I would highly recommend! Thank you Irene :

Irene and her family created a wonderful experience for us all. The food was wonderful.. We had a lovely group, and everyone got hands-on experience making pasta. If you are driving or taking a taxi, you'll want to get the driving directions from Irene. Also note that a taxi from Alghero is about 30-40 Eur. At least, this was our experience.

Worth every single penny...and more! Irene was so welcoming and her home is beautiful. We made different types of pasta and stuffed raviolli. After a tour of the house and grounds Irene led us to a table by her lovely peacful swimming pool that she had set up for us. We were then served home made prosecco and wine from her vineyard which was the best we have ever tasted. We were served course after course, the food was incredible! Do not hesitate to book this experience!
