Travellers reviews

We had a fabulous day learning tips and tricks making pasta from scratch with the family, and experiencing the full range on Italian Family life. The highlight was cooking and eating the dish, which turned into a fabulous full on family 7 course meal - so much fun was had. Marino and his family have so much love and energy for their produce, food, family and the area - I highly recommend spending time with them; you're guaranteed a fantastic experience.

What we will do

🍝 1

With this experience I want to take you through a journey in time. This is not a simple pasta making class. We are going to make from scratch, the traditional pasta from Teramo, called ‘pasta alla chitarra’. Very few people still make it following the tradition, with this old wooden tool called ‘chitarra’. Restaurants and housewives nowadays make it with the pasta machine, but you will experience with your senses that it’s a totally different story making it completely by hand! Your life will change when you will learn why is important to make it by hand, and how to make it home under 20m time.

With the two of us together, You will learn all the secrets recipes my nonna keeps within the family for generations. Together we will share a typical day of a family from southern Italy.

My Grandma is 83y old, so it can happen that sometimes she might not feel good, she also has our Nonno(grandpa) to take care of, in that case, she will still come to supervise and tell me to add more salt, but I will be taking her class.

Travellers reviews

WOW. My boyfriend and I 100 percent lucked in to the most amazing time with Marino at his Make pasta with his grandmother. From start to finish, he was incredibly understanding and kind, and went out of his way to make sure that we had a great time. The whole thing was incredible, and it felt like we were actually able to experience a part of Italian culture that most don't. If you want to have a great time, eat amazing food that you made yourself, and genuinely get to experience Italy the way it should be, I highly recommend booking this. You will not regret it!
