I learned how to make pasta since I was really young by my grandma, Nonna Nerina... she is the true host and the true protagonist of this story.

She lived her childhood during the second world war, her mum taught her how to feed children with just 2 ingredients: eggs and flour.
Whenever I sat in her kitchen growing up, she’d make pasta while sharing memories of that time. I soon realized my generation was missing something important: not just the handmade pasta technique but an entire tradition passed down through the ages.
I decided to share this gem with the rest of the world.

Over three years, we've hosted more than 5,000 travelers in our kitchen.

And soon other grandmas in our small village decided to be part of this crazy project!

Nonna Angela, Nonna Gio, Nonna Lalla, Nonna Marghe, Nonna Renzia are waiting for you, amore!

We had a wonderful experience with Chiara and Nonna! They helped us make ravioli from scratch, were very friendly and engaging, and kept everyone involved throughout the process! Highly recommended for a group of friends, family, or coworkers!

Pasta with Grandma was an incredible experience. Chiara and Nonna are fantastic teachers who take the time to connect with and check in on each member of the call. Our group was full of first time gnocchi makers and everyone was able to follow along with their guidance. I will be making gnocchi again soon!

This is a great idea. Now I know how Fettucine are made! The host and her grandma (who only speaks Italian) were very charming and helpful. When I did not have all the ingredients ready, the hosts were flexible to give me an alternative, equally delicious recipe. It was an enjoyable and well-spent 90 minutes.

We had a great time! We actually would have paid just to watch Nonna make pasta -- it was hard to focus on our own ingredients because watching her was so fascinating. Thank you!

Bought this as a birthday gift for my mom and it was absolutely wonderful! I loved seeing people from all over the world come together to take a cooking class and loved connecting to Italy in this virtual way. Highly recommend!

We received this experience as a gift and weren't sure what to expect, but it turned out to be. really fun! It was great to get a little taste of Italy from the comfort and safety of our own kitchen. I would recommend Pasta with the Grandmas for any carb-loving aspiring chefs.
