Antonio is a very warm Host and a Great Cook who really wants you to understand the Italian way of cooking and enjoying the food. He even prepared food with us for the next day, just to show as another dish. I would recommend a lesson with Antonio to everybody.

What an experience!! Was like having dinner with a friend... Except it tasted better and I could say I'd helped to cook it :) Antonio from the start was super welcoming, with so many stories about the history and culture of Italy to share. He speaks many languages and has travelled alot so there's so much to learn! And he was patient with my lack of cooking know how :) A brilliant night and one of the highlights of my time in Bologna.

Der Kochkurs fand in einer kleinen Dachgeschosswohnung statt. Frederico empfing uns herzlich und begrüßte uns mit einer Flasche gutem Rotwein. Der hauptberufliche Koch zeigte uns Schritt für Schritt die Technik handgemachter Pasta. Er erzählte dabei viel aus seinem Leben. Die gekochten Gerichte waren sehr lecker. Als Dessert hatte er uns noch eine vorbereitete köstliche Tiramisu serviert. Alles in allem war es ein guter Kurs, das Ambiente war jedoch sehr einfach gehalten.
