Before booking a culinary experience, don't forget to follow me on Instagram at @stayhungrystaybologna and send me a direct message to receive a special surprise – a bottle of fine wine from my private collection! This exclusive cooking class has been named one of the top 50 experiences in the world for 2023! You'll enjoy a delightful evening in my cozy living room, surrounded by the soothing ambiance of candlelight and the smooth sounds of jazz music. To ensure your complete comfort, our apartment is equipped with air conditioning, so you can focus on savoring every bite of our delicious meal. We'll begin with an Aperol Spritz and a taste of my homemade pizza, fresh out of the oven. Next, you'll learn the art of preparing two traditional pasta dishes, Tortelloni and Tagliatelle, each paired with two delectable sauces: the classic Ragu' (Bolognaise sauce) and a fresh cherry tomato sauce infused with basil. Under my guidance, you'll discover the secrets of creating handmade pasta from scratch, starting with a simple egg. During the meal, I'll introduce you to some of Italy's finest wines, sharing the stories behind each bottle and guiding you through the perfect pairings. Our carefully curated wine selection features top organic Italian producers, including Sangiovese, Merlot, Chianti, Pinot Grigio, and Chardonnay. Feel free to indulge in unlimited wine tastings and explore your preferences. Vegetarian options are available, crafted with 100% organic veggies. Save room for dessert, as you're in for a treat – my grandmother's legendary Tiramisu recipe, passed down through generations of my family since the 1980s. Be sure to say hello to Ragu', my adorable little red cat, who might just make an appearance during the evening.
