Public events and private workshops

Why do we continue to cook? Because it makes us feel human!
Mixing the flour, kneading the dough, cutting onions to make soffritto, let the tomato sauce simmer slowly. Ancient rituals that connect us to the meaning of food and to the authentic essence of Italian cuisine. 

During my workshops I want to guide you for a few hours in a sensory journey to Italy, where we are going to cook together, hands-on and from scratch, the recipes that I have tested in more than 15 years as cookbook author and food writer.

You can choose among:
– public events at my cooking studio in Malmö (or at my partners’ locations)
– private workshops at your house.


From March to June we will cook different Italian dishes together in different group-events available in Malmö and Lund.
Pasta from different regions of Italy, of course, and great Italian dishes, good and easy to replicate at home.

How does it work?
All my workshops are hands- on: we work in a group, under my guidance and everybody will be involved in the preparation of one or more dishes from scratch.
They last a minimum of 3 hours, but often more, since it is a pleasure to cook together and share the food we prepare, so… no rush!
So, the first part of the workshop is dedicated to the preparation of the food, the second to eating it in good company.
The classes are in Swedish or English.

Where and when
All the workshops in Malmö are held in the Spaghetti ABC studio, located in Larochegatan 5, very close to Lilla Torg. They start at 16 PM
All the workshops in Lund are held at Reko Deli, in Bredgatan 4, not far from the Lund’s train station. They start at 17PM.

The menu
Every class has a different menu, according to what described above for each workshop.
I use seasonal local ingredients, preferably organic and Italian delicacies. When you make you reservation, please specify any food intolerance or special diet.

The cost per person of each workshop in Malmö is 1.100 sek and it includes: all the ingredients for the cooking class, snacks and finger food served with non alcoholic drinks, the meal at the end of every class and my guidance.
The cost per person of each workshop in Lund is 1.150 sek and it includes: all the ingredients for the cooking class, snacks and finger food served with non alcoholic drinks, the meal at the end of every class, my guidance and Bianca guidance who will also show her cooking tips about a conscious cooking.

What you will find on the spot
All the cooking tools and an apron will wait for you at my workshops. You don’t need to bring anything, maybe a notebook to take some notes.

The number of spots is limited. The reservation will be finalized upon payment. Tickets are not refundable. Write me here to book your spot.

Alternatives and solutions
You want to attend a class but it is already fully booked?
The day of the workshop of your dream you are already busy?
No panic! Write me and let’s find a solution, which can be doing the class privately, with a group of friends (see below).

If you want to be updated about my future events, subscribe to my monthly newsletter. You will receive:

  • the e-book I’ve created only for you about the must-have Italian ingredients
  • each month, 4 new Italian recipes, tested during my cooking classes, using seasonal ingredients
  • fact sheets on the ingredients of Italian cuisine, how to recognize the quality ones and how to use them.


In 3,5 hours of hands-on workshop, I show how to make 2 different pasta shapes, guiding you to “understand” the flour and how to knead it in order to have a proper pasta dough. 

My golden rule? “Feel the dough”, instead of relying on quantities. Measurements can be sometimes wrong but, instead, you can always trust your hands! After kneading the dough together, we enjoy the aperitivo, made of Italian delicacies. 

The core of the workshop focuses on the preparation of the 2 pasta dishes under my guidance. Then we will taste and pair them with different sauces made with seasonal ingredients, in a nice meal that will bring all the participants around a table, to celebrate the food we cooked!
During the meal a fresh salad and a dessert is served. 

This is always the nicest part of the experience, an opportunity to know deeper the Italian food culture and to share your questions with me (Italian cooking techniques, food pairing, preserving pasta and any other question that can inspire your everyday cooking).


A cooking class where we are going to prepare from scratch a whole Italian menu, from antipasti to dessert, including a dish of hand made pasta. 

We will work in a group, under my guidance: this is a hands-on workshop and everybody will be involved in the preparation of one or more dishes.  

Generally we prepare antipasti to serve together with cheese and finger food, then a main course with pasta, a salad and a dessert, with coffee. All made by you!  I will decide the recipes once you confirm the event and the date, choosing among seasonal, local fresh ingredients and Italian delicacies. 

I will design the menu according to special diets and food preferences so everybody can fully enjoy the meal. If you want to make fresh pasta this can’t be gluten free. But if you need to have a gluten free menu I can fix that: risotto (or polenta) is also a very nice option.  The workshop (cooking + dinner) lasts 3.5 /4 hours. It also depends on how much we chat! 

My private workshops are for you if:
– you like to prepare and eat home cooked Italian food
– you want to know more about Italian culinary culture, ingredients and techniques
– you want to spend quality time, in the kitchen and at the table, with the people you love.

The private workshops are conceived for groups of friends, colleagues and family, for a minimum of 3 participants. No particular cooking skill is required.

Being a traveler (I lived in France, the United States and Scandinavia, connecting people from all over the world around a plate of pasta), my workshops are at your place. I ring the bell, bringing in your kitchen my bags full of flours, seasonal vegetables, extra-virgin olive oil and my pasta tools.

I can reach you in every location with a kitchen, mostly in the area of Malmö (Sweden) and Copenhagen (Denmark). For any other locations (in Europe or outside), write to me and let’s find a solution.
For info and reservations leave me a message here.


Thanks to a partnership with the importer Byracka vin, you can order Italian wines to my events, via Systembolaget’s private import.

We design seasonal wine-boxes that match the food of my cooking class: a way to deep dive even more into Italian unique biodiversity.
