No question, this was the highlight of our trip and the activity that is squarely at the top of my list to repeat on our next visit. Marzia and Sisto are the most warm and wonderful hosts. First, we toured the historic market and then went to their home for a cooking lesson and dinner. We started with a sparkling red wine and had mortadella and prosciutto that Marzia and Sisto purchased from the market during the tour. Delicious!! The fresh pasta lesson was fun and a real eye-opener about what it takes to make fresh pasta—- it’s more work than we imagined and we have a real appreciation now for this craft. We also made tiramisu with Marzia and it was the best I’ve ever tasted. I cannot adequately express what a lovely evening this was and how lucky we are to spend an evening with this couple in their home. An amazing and unforgettable time!

My friend and I spent an amazing day with Oriana that I will never forget. She was not only knowledgable about food and cooking, she was warm, friendly and welcoming. We were able to submerge ourselves into her lifestyle and gained a true perspective of the life of a Bolognese. Her daughter and husband, Salvatore, joined us for lunch and they too were happy to have us in their home. I walked away with great recipes and insight, and I now have a lifelong friend. Grazie Oriana. I will miss you...until we meet again!
