About
We run boutique cooking classes with locals that aim to promote the meeting among people and bring them closer for a meal or for the rest of their lives.Classes are held in private houses in the old town in Parma, a city where food is culture, identity, the past and the future. We will be offering hands-on cooking classes culminating in a simple - but fine - sit-down meal for you to enjoy at the end using top-quality ingredients. You will learn how to recognize the best raw materials and discover the origins and the history of our recipes.All recipes are healthy and fresh, with just 3-5 ingredients (not including staples like salt, pepper and oil) and can slightly vary according to seasonal products. Classes last approximately 1.5-2 hours and start at 18.00 - unless agreed differently. We are not professional chefs, but family cooks.

Best experience in Parma- dont miss it!
Jul. 2021
We had an absolutely amazing time cooking with Daniela and her husband, as well as another couple. Daniela is the most welcoming host and this was our favorite experience in Parma. We learned how to make fresh homemade pasta and got expert cooking tips, while also learning a lot more about Italian culture, the history of Parma, and just chatting with Daniela. We had a 4+ hour dinner, and we were so sad when it ended. We cannot thank Daniela enough for being the perfect Italian host, and we hope to return someday and take another class with her!!!

A great and authentic way to spend a night in Italy
Jul. 2021
We went for a night of pasta making at Danielas home in Parma. Daniela was extremely kind and a very good teacher.

She showed us how to make the pasta and then made us do it while giving feedback. It was very nice and we reallly felt that we learned how to make pasta.

We also learned to set the table and asked Daniela a lot of questions about Italien food culture and she happily answered them all.

The night was a bit longer than expected (it said 2 hours on the website) but we were there the whole night cooking, eating and chatting.

It was a very special and nice experience, that we would recommend to anyone.

Great authentic experience!
Aug. 2020 • Family
It was a unique and great experience for my family to prepare and cook an authentic traditional meal at Daniela's home. Daniela clearly showed her knowledge of Italian food and ensured that all of us to contributed to making the meal, experience my children aged 8 and 12. The experience was capped with us all eating together with her husband on their terrace. It was a warm atmosphere and we had enjoyable conversation.

Wonderful evening cooking with Daniela
Oct. 2019 • Couples
My partner and I had an absolutely incredible evening learning how to make tortelli and tiramisu with Daniela. She was so friendly and patient while explaining each component of the process. We gained so much insider knowledge about traditions in Parma, cheesemaking, and Italian cuisine. We absolutely loved how hands on the class was and felt confident in the skills that we had learned. The icing on the cake was being able to share a beautiful cultural exchange with Daniela and her husband over dinner. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Parma!

Great cooking class & local dinner party experience!
Sep. 2019
My wife and I had a lovely evening learning to make some traditional Italian classics with Daniela. The format is very casual - you are making food in her kitchen of her home and sitting down for dinner with her and her husband. We enjoyed the conversation as well as the cooking class - as somebody who has taken many classes when we travel, this is a unique experience and well worth doing. Thank you again Daniela!

Daniela, thank you for a lovely, fun experience. What a great opportunity to learn to prepare and cook authentic Italian cuisine. Taking your cooking class was such a special beginning to our trip through Italy and definitely a high point. The table was lovely and the food delicious. I can’t say enough about your hospitality and kindness. I would love to do it again!!! Special thanks for rescuing two lost ladies and leading us to the comfort of your home. I highly recommend this opportunity.

Parma cooking class
Our Parma evening cooking class with Daniela was absolutely fabulous. This outstanding well-organized lovely event was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Italy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in having an authentic food preparation experience in the family kitchen of a local resident. I cannot wait to try some of these yummy recipes once I get back home.

Delicious and informative!
Oct. 2019
We had such an amazing evening with Daniella. She provided us with the history of our dish before diving into the cooking itself. Although the recipe was simple, it was absolutely delicious. She'll even give you the recipe to take home with you. Daniella and her husband were very welcoming, and really made us feel at home. HIGHLY recommended!
