Beware last minute cancellations
, Sep 2020
Cancelled the morning after payment went out due to an illness that was several days old apparently. Waiting for a refund. We were in Lecce so spoke to someone locally and had a different but wonderful pasta cooking course run privately.

Thanks for your comment ! your host got a serious injury and we immediately wrote you that ! maybe next time try to book the class with more notice as a cooking class is not like selling a museum tickets

An evening of cooking in a lovely family home

Paola and Triziano provided a great evening of good local food and an introduction to making many types of local pasta. We practiced making local pasta, of all different shapes, then sat down to great wine, conversation and food. It was a lovely evening that we will always remember of Lecce.
Memorable experience

Unforgettable experience!

Tiziano and Paola delivered to us an incredible experience, something definitely to remember. It was a beautiful day together where we felt welcome from the very beginning being immersed in a very home and friendly environment. The cooking class with Paola was fun and engaging, and the food was made by simple but delicious ingredients, as the local tradition wants. I definitely recommend it!
Great experience!

Paula & Tiziano are great guests and their home is beautiful! Experiencing a traditional dinner with an Italian family was one of the highlights of our visit to Lecce. We highly recommend it!
