Learn the secrets of Modena cooking in this half-day cooking class. Meet your host, a local “cesarina,” at a nearby market to shop for ingredients. Back in her home kitchen, enjoy a glass of regional wine as you help prepare four traditional Italian recipes: a starter, pasta, main course with side, and dessert. Top off the evening with an espresso and don’t forget your take-home gifts—a Cesarine apron and tote bag.

    Cesarine Maria Luisa was a wonderful hostess.
    Lelah_S, May 2022
    Maria Luisa was very welcoming and her home was lovely. She first showed us the famous markets and treated us to a cappuccino at a local café near the Duomo in Modena. She taught us how to make tortellini and what to purchase to make it at home in the United States. She served a delicious main course and desert with plenty of wine. She and her friend could converse in English and it was a delightful evening.
