Daniele, our host chef, was very patient and funny. My husband who can NOT boil water learned how to make pasta. It was an easy process to book and great experience during our trip to Parma. We recommend this to anyone looking for a fun way to spend a few hours productively in the culinary capital of the world.

The class was fantastic. Our chef did a marvelous job instructing on how to prepare and cut different types of pasta. Who knew it was so easy!?!

Thanks for the great course and pleasurable time with an Italian chef.

Good location in the Parma city center.

My only recommendation is not to allow children under 12. We had two young children and a baby. The adults with them were too busy trying to entertain the kids, which was a little distracting for the others attending.

Overall, a fantastic course.
